Yes.Because it's the junior handlers being judged,not the dogs.
This is just teaching them what the conformation shows are all about.It's practice for them.
There are a few comments I'd like to make in regards to something mentioned in that link.But that's going off topic..I stopped being a thread jacker quite some time ago.........
canuckgirl,personally I wouldn't wait till 8-10 months.Cats can go into heat at 4 months.
Pediatric s/n are so much easier on the kittens.They heal much quicker.And I have seen that with my guys.My two that were done at 8 weeks were bouncing around in no time.With my male Casper,they actually used a glue and not stitches.That was different.Winnie had about 3-4 stitches.All my cats are happy and healthy.
