We raised Tans for a while -- they are a beautiful, but hyper animal. Very intelligent and loyal, but sure can be wild! I pickeda black Tanfor Best 4 Class at the show yesterday. It was stunning. The girl also has a beautiful chocolate Tan that I've seen at a few shows.
Great pics, i love them, because of how they can behave They a re for me only as I didnt want my son handling them. I just love their look its great, one thing i find strange is the judges there dont where white coats like ours do!
Black fleece that attracts all that fur certainly isn't the #1 choice :faint:
Judges in the US do prefer the white lab coats, but I've seen some judges wear very colorful nurses scrubs, dog grooming smocks, or wild colored lab coats (a male friend of mine wore a pink lab coat for judging this past weekend). Aprons are also very popular,especially in the hot weather. When I'm doing a2-day show, I ditch the dirty whites from the 1st day and wear an apron on day 2. One drawback of the aprons is that your arms aren't protected.
Although ARBA doesn't have a strict dress code for judges, they highly recommend that you look professional and wear a show coat or apron while judging.
