    No clue here either, so I guessed. I assume it can be quite a bit, but all of those numbers seem like a lot to me, even though I'm probably way off...

    So, Lord, looking at your vote, you're saying it's over 50G? Is that a guess or do you know?

    since i do not have a showdog and if i had one i wouldn't do conformation LMAO
    i know you need the entry fees, gasmoney, hotel cost ect. but i have no idea how much it would be, til you have finished your dog, but i think 50g are much out of line ;)

    I said a dog show and work with the meaning that you will spent time gas hotels training expences to give a carrier. Also food is a bit different with show. And my question is for the ENTIRE LIFE of the animal. So except the show work expences, calculate buying the pup cropping, crates, food, vet bills, a possible cancer later and treatment, pet hotel when on holiday (i personaly take them with me), buying maybe a bigger car to fit the dogs, airplane tickets for u and dog to a show or work exam...... bla bla bla. Until u get the little thing when it is time to say goodbye and depart for some time before u meet again in heaven....

    When you asked this question Lord, I remembered a funny thread Von Doom started about this topic a while back. It's meant as a spoof on the costs of raising and showing dobes. This is by no means an accurate accounting of the actual costs you refer to in you original question but I thought you might get a laugh reading it. Here's the link:

    I did read. It is not funny. It is true. And imagine for me every show was just to go and get back 300-400 euros. Of course the best we do is wipe the dog with a wet towel to look pretty. We dont do all this gay stuff. By the way the last show that was also a championship i didnt even bother to wipe them down. It was muddy and i left them with that. Still 3rd place

    If you wiped him down was 2nd. possible??? This is a question with many answers. What country are you competing in? What federation akc, udc (etc) what is sport, ipo 1, ipo 3, Fr. Ring etc. To many variables. If your in Italy compared to the States the cost is very different.

    Where do you find this dog that can compete on all levels and be a respected competitor. We are talking about Dobermanns, right. VON.

    What i am saying is that is that we dont groom the dogs. The chulk or colour means disqualification. U just have the dog clean. Thats it when it comes to grooming.

    I think the confusion is coming in because, in English, grooming means the same thing as cleaning Lord. When you say color do you mean adding something to their coat to make their color darker? That's what I'm getting from what you're saying.

    yes whatever. Like chulk thing. In my club u get disqualified.

    Do you have access to an English language converter Lord? Not trying to be rude or anything but what does chulk mean?

    It means mediocre, not sure what Lord is refering to. Maybe a less then desirable coat???? VON.

    Like powder. Do not worry i dont get offended. I dont look at dictionaries no. I am too bored

    So this powder is something added to a dobes coat to make them look better maybe than they are? And some do this? I'm just trying to learn form this thread.
