I have had my Dalmatian for just under a year now and he is almost 13 months old. I knew before I picked him that I wanted to show and we qualified for Crufts next year. But he is nervous as soon as we get to the show and doesn't show himself off because he is always looking at the judge in the ring or stand still to let the judge go over him. I did a lot of local shows last year, around 8 within 8 weeks and by the end of that he didn't bat a eye when the judge came over. We have been taking him out a lot to socialise him as much as we can, getting people to touch him and give him treats, and recently started taking him to ringcraft classes. He is still nervous though and I am not going to any more shows before Crufts as there are none near me. If he is still nervous and backs away when judges touch him there will be no point going to Crufts because it is a long way to go and my dad wouldn't drive me.

Any ideas of how to help him stop being so nervous?

Thank you Very Happy
