Showing Kunga by Alxe Noden is a book that needs to be read by those in the dog show fancy, pet owners, and those interested in possibly showing their first dog. Alxe only intended to purchase a pet Great Dane that was healthy and had a good temperament. Buy this book and relive some of the challenges you have had and remember your mentors and then return to the sport your support of the newcomer. It is about mentoring. Read about Kunga and Alxe and their journey from pet owner to dog show junkie and enjoy. --Ed Gilbert, AKC judge and author of K-9 Structure and Terminology
At last! A completely honest and exposed view into the exhilarating, crazy, and often baffling world of conformation dog showing. As a newcomer to the sport, Alxe learns (often the hard way) about the competitiveness, the etiquette, and the unwritten rules of the ring, and shares her experiences and faux pas so that her readers may have a leg up on her competition. With seemingly no subject off-limits the reader follows Alxe on her journey from a novice pet owner to championed show handler. Conformation showing motivates us to train and gives us an activity to do with our dog. However in the end, a ribbon is worth 39-cents, but the shared experiences with our dogs are priceless. --Kyra Sundance, World-renowned trainer, bestselling author of 6 books including 101 Dog Tricks and host of an award winning DVD series.
