I am new to this whole thing. I read a lot of posts about contacting the local Boxer club in my area, but the closest one seems to meet in Seattle. Just wondering if anybody knew of a club in Northern Washington, close to Skagit County? If not, maybe a mentor out closer to my neck of the woods? I'd like to get introduced to the show world, gradually. Could someone from an all-breed kennel club be a mentor, or is it better to have a breed specific one? I know there's an all-breed club in Anacortes, and was thinking of starting there. There's no phone # listed with it, or website on the club page on AKC.org. Just an address. I know they're having an agility/obedience show/rally on the 16th of this month. Is that the best way to get in contact with them? At the show? I thought most people would be busy and not want to be disturbed. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
