Hi, smile
I'm getting an English Cocker Spaniel to show in AKC juniors and breed this month, I currently show a Rat Terrier in 4H and juniors.

I was wondering if there are any other Cocker (especially English) juniors or handlers that could give me some tips.

I've wathed lots of Junior and Breed videos and will continue to watch more. I have to major questions.

Spaniel handlers tend to take their lead off in the ring alot. Do I do that everytime I'm stacking up, even in line or...? SO when exactly is my real question I guess...

also, is it possible to go to West and AENC and maybe qualify for the finals when I've only been showing in AKC since I was thirteen, though I have been showing in 4H since i was ten...

thank you!
