Show Report

September 2017


THANK YOU to everyone who helped.

From loading-up & taping on Tuesday, to tear-down on Sunday.


Has been an interesting year.


Challenges this year:

2 judges cancelling 4 days before the show on a 3day W.E.

Hurricane Harvey in Gulf during entry deadline date

Hurricane Irma aiming at FL during the show

Vendors – had 2 cancel

1 refunded due to flooding in Houston

1 credited for 2018 show – Atlanta Semen Bank


Learned a lot. Made a few mistakes along the way, but all in all was good. Will not dwell on any specifics unless someone has a question.


Made/Loss: +$335.83


2018 Show already in progress: Sept 6-9, 2018

2 wks will file paper work with AKC for next year

2 Toy, 4 AB, 2 Specialty shows, 4 NOHS, (2 Obedience?)


Changing Superintendents: MB-F to Onofrio

2 major reasons

Cost (go over comparison)

PL distribution


Coliseum Costs – are the same

Taping on Tuesday, Sept. 4 @ 10a


Will be lowering costs on many items:

Vendor booths

Catalog costs

Entry fees


Judging Panel set (cannot release until AKC approves)


Needs for 2018

Hotel updates for PL (discount for dog show) (Motel 8 gives 10%, will they match?)

RV camping areas (prices and discounts)

Especially Fox’s

Golf cart rental deal



It takes a big man to show a small dog,
It takes a REAL man to show a hairless one.
