To show ABKC conformation your dog needs to know how to stack and work on gaiting around the ring. Some dogs pick up on it easy and some take more time. If you have someone to help you learn how to stack a dog correcly you should pursue it. Go to a show and watch the ring. You will pick up on it by observation if anything. Where are you located? I can tell you when the next few shows are around you. You need to register your dog with the ABKC if he isn't already.
Your dog must have either AKC, UKC, or ADBA paperwork to register with the ABKC.
I'll post more info but I have to get ready for my brother's wedding so I'll do it later tonight.
