Bella dose not like to show.  :(  She is such a sweet girl, but she is just is not loving the ring. She is not good enough of a bitch to win with out showing her self off, so I will retire her from the ring. I am hoping she takes to herding. So I can do something with her.

Whatta shame. I hear this so often, that I wish they would just let em be dogs in the ring, so they can not feel the pressure and just be themselves. Hope she has some fun doing something she loves though.

 Hopefully she'll find something she enjoys.It's really a shame that they don't let them be themselves in the ring.

Yeah, I hope she likes herding or that you can find something else she likes to do!

Charlotte was the same way . The minute she went in the ring she totally changed , you could see how much she hated it .

They have to be really out going for the ring. I am hoping that she takes to herding. Mic's niece thinks that the ring is the best thing ever. Some love it, some hate it.

Tried Bella one last time in the ring. The first day was not really happy with it, but the second day my friend who handles her brought out a squeker and she was much happier. I may try her a couple of more shows and see how it goes. I am not going to force her, but if the toy works we will keep going. She is really happy about travling and everything about the show. Just not liking the being told what to do part in the ring. So I think we have to turn this into some type of game for her.

Game sounds like a great idea! No sense trying to do "serious" with a Boxer.  ;)
