Hi All! This is my 1st ever post so lets see how it goes. I have a 3.5 month old German shepherd purchased from kennels well known for producing fantastic show dogs (Von Bad Boll). I am hoping to experience showing him and see how far he goes however i have seen posts that state you look at your dog with mothers eyes and will be disheartened to find your dog isn't show worthy! My only concern is that he has white patch on his chest and very small white mark on his rear feet. Will this affect his eligibility to be shown... if not then does this affect the scoring system?(Pictures attached) I have signed him up to puppy obedience classes for 8 weeks. is there anything i need to know prior to signing him up to shows. also i have heard that a dogs diet can affect his coat colour! i understand it can affect coat quality but the colour! is this true? I have had problems with his diet as i have him on Hills Science Plan wet food as he outright refuses dry food! i consulted the vets and was told shepherds are stubborn and will try get something tastier than his food so he wont eat and to be stubborn and lift the food after 15 minutes. this only led to my pup not eating for 3 days so i couldnt take any more and placed him on wet food. I attempted to mix his wet with dry food but if he sniffs even a small amount, he will turn it away. but he licks the bowl clean with wet food alone which is costing me arm and a leg! Pain in the a**! Ive tried a difference brand (Arden Grange) but nothing changed! Any advice will be fantastic!
