Why Are Dog Shows So Serious?

Dog shows should be fun, shouldn't they?

As a clicker trainer, and being so passionate about educating owners about it, you surround yourself with everything to do with reward based training, videos, articles, books, and anything you can get your hands on. All of your clients get taught clicker training, and the fantastic impact it has, not only on training, but on the relationship with their dog. You are in your own little bubble and despite knowing how many trainers still use harsh methods in training, you sort of forget about it.
