    Show lead/set
    Ring clip
    Brush/Comb
    Dry Shampoo and Towel if needed
    Benching chain (I'm guessing for a larger dog)

    Ermm, can't think of more right now, but others will come up with some :)

    Buy this book, :)
    Showing Your Dog: A Beginner's Guide: Amazon.co.uk: Elaine Everest: Books
    So much of it you will learn as you go but I find this a really good reference too

    Show lead set
    Ring clip/s ( I need at least 4 in order to find one)
    Brush/comb or whatever you use for a dallie
    Wet wipes
    Dry Shampoo
    Benching Chain
    Blanket
    A sort of smallish holdall, for ages I was using this really deep backpack and it was a nightmare trying to find things at shows. Then just before crufts I was in tesco and their tesco value holdall for a fiver is just perfect for my needs :). This list basically is what I have in that holdall
    Water spray bottle
    Travel water bowl
    Breath mints
    Towel
    Poo bags
    Pen and paper or notebook
    Bait bag
    Spare emergency bait


    A smile and a lot of patience

  8. All we ever took - and wouldn;t think Dally's to be much different were
    A show lead
    Poo bags
    Treats (to TRY and encourage her to stand)
    Number Clip
    The show schedule
    and in the car we had a bottle of water and some bedding !

    Guess we were lucky though that her coat always has one hell of a shine and that she never needed sprucing up! she needs to lose acouple of pounds now - but almost thinking of taking her again!

    Reckon she i looking pretty OK and she has matured a fair bit.

    One other thing to remember some butties and a flask in case you are there all day or the classes are runing late.

    In my bag I have about 20 leads my OH asks why I need so many leads to take 2 dogs to a show. My answer is always the same you never know if your lead breaks you will need a spare and all of my dogs show on different types of leads hence why I need to take so many:D:D
