Qry:If you bring more dogs than handlers, where do the dogs not being shown at the time stay? (i.e if you ahve 2 dogs, say, and you ahve to show 1 in 1 class, where do you leave your other dog, or do you bring your "crew" to help out?)

Ans: If the other dog is not showing, then it will be left outside the staging area with friends. If it is being judged as well eg. one dog and one bitch in the same breed then it will be left with another handler in the staging area.
Qry: Does it work like if you win Best in Category, then you go on to compete for the Best in Show title? DOes this involve the whole thing again, standing for the judge, trotting, etc?
Ans: Yes. You are required to show your dog all over again.
Qry: And are there only Best in Category, or are there also Best in Breed classes?
Ans: Both. Each category will have a 1st & 2nd place(depending on the number of entries). You'll also have the Best of Breed award and Reserve Best of Breed award. In addition, what everyone wants is the Dog and Bitch Challenge Certs(12championship pts) or the next best thing, the Reserve Challenge Certs (4 championship pts).
