HI, I was just curious how much does it cost to enter a dog in a show?
It varies, depending on area, type of show, etc. but generally $20 is about average (AKC shows). The highest I've paid is $28 (so far!) Puppy classes are often lower-priced, and BBE (Bred-By Exhibitor, in which the dog must have been bred by and be shown by the owner or co-owner or their immediate family) sometimes is, as well.
Yes, as Julie said it does vary by show. $20-$27 is pretty average though benched shows are more. Don't forget parking is $5-$10 at most shows and catalogs are $10 usually. If you hire a handler to show your dog you are looking at $50-$80 per day. All in all it is an expensive but fun hobby
