What is your Houluh's Sex?: Patronne Desired Show Name: Walk Skip and Jump
Well, he hadn't been here in a little while. The last time Kadin had shown off a houluh, it had been... Cirrus, was it? Oh, no, probably Lux. Yeah, that had been a minute ago. He'd taken his time with this more recent batch of pups, although none of that time had been spent slacking off. He had one ready to two now, another one close, and a third gearing up to be ready soon. He had sort of missed the anticipation of it, the excitement of coming to the show ring, showing off your houluh, and seeing how they're judged. He was looking forward to showing everyone what his houluh could do. Today, he was here with Skip. Skip was another pup he'd gotten from the adoption agency and he sure had come a long way. Now he was all the way here, filling out a form for Skip to officially be registered.
"It's alright, Skip." Kadin told the pup when he noticed him being a bit nervous about entering the ring. "Just listen to me, like you have been. I'll be here the whole time." Of course, Skip couldn't understand what Kadin was saying, but he could still pick up on the tone. He yipped in confirmation, probably responding to his name, and Kadin grinned. "Alright, Skip. Stay." He said next, walking out into the arena. Once he was about halfway across, he called the pup to him with a, "Come!" Skip charged across the area and to Kadin's side, tail wagging madly the whole time because he knew what a good boy he was being. But just in case, "Good boy, Skip!" Kadin praised, tossing him a treat. "At east." Skip wagged his tail some more and calmed down, looking curiously around the arena to take in his surroundings, seemingly completely relaxed even in this novel environment.

It hadn't been all that long since he was last here with Skip. Now Kadin was back, once again, and this time with Elk in tow. He'd been working on Elk for longer than Skip, actually, and only just now managed to get around to showing off everything that he'd learned so far. Kadin really needed to work harder to get all of his houluh up to standards, come to think of it. It seemed like every time he looked, he had more of the things! More to train, more to work with. Just. More. Now he was here today, filling out forms for Elk. Hopefully Pepper wouldn't be too far behind him since she was the one he was going to be working on next. He was sure as long as he put in the time and effort to train her up, he'd be bringing her here to show off soon, too.
Kadin brought Elk out into the show ring, looking around at the judges and hoping this show would go as well as all the others. He looked down at Elk, gave him a slight smile, and said, "Ready, buddy?"
Elk looked back up at Kadin and wagged his tail, ready and waiting to do whatever it was Kadin wanted to do! He wasn't picky! With a shake of his head, Kadin chuckled and walked out onto the arena, asking Elk to stay while he made his way out. Elk did just that, staying put until he heard Kadin called out, "Come!" Then he raced over to one of his favorite people, tail wagging madly all the while. Next Kadin asked Elk to start begging, holding out a treat for the houluh to beg for. Elk stood up on his back legs right away, holding up his paws cutely and giving the best puppy dog eyes he could manage! Kadin laughed and tossed him the treat. "Good job, Elk."

Kadin had taken his time training up his next houluh to be shown. He had so many of them and they took so long to work with, it was something he definitely preferred to take his time with rather than jumping right into. This time the houluh that he had to show was one that he'd actually gotten from outside his kennels, but not from the adoption agency, for once. This was one he'd managed to obtain in a trade that he felt he lucked out on. He was very excited to see what she'd end up looking like once she was fully grown and ready to be shown in other contests. Kadin went to fill out all the forms that he needed, filling everything out and then getting prepared to bring Pepper out into the ring to show off everything, or at least nearly everything, that she had been taught so far.
As Kadin brought her out into the arena, he looked around to make sure that everyone was ready before focusing in on Pepper in order to start showing what sort of things she knew how to do. He'd set up the arena with things for her to find and grab for him to make things easier. First, he showed her a scent and had her track it through the arena, running around until she finally found the source and signaled that she'd found it. Once accomplished, he told her to be at ease, calming down and relaxing until he asked something else from her. While she was doing that, he grabbed the toy he'd asked her to track, and told her to catch! He tossed the toy to her, pleased when she caught it easily in her mouth. It didn't take much at all and she had shown off plenty! Hopefully it would be up to par.

After Pepper passed inspection, it was Tex's turn for the spotlight. Kadin went back to the ring to fill out all the appropriate forms and make sure that everything was prepared for him to show the next houluh in the ring. He'd been working fairly hard lately to get his houluh up to snuff and it was nice to see that some of that hard work was finally paying off. Tex seemed excited enough to be in the ring, ready and willing to be shown off and prove herself as capable of what they wanted to be able to do in the future. Kadin was confident in his ability to improve on these pups, he was confident in his ability to show them off to the best of their potential, too. He hoped that Tex would shine just as well as all the others had and they could easily make their way to the finished houluh.
Once the all clear was given, it was time to go out and show what Tex had learned. She had a more specific skillset than most of his houluh, having learned more purposeful things other than just simply learning to come, stay, and all that jazz. Kadin specifically wanted to show her herding potential since that was what they had worked on the most. So for this demonstration he'd requested some critters for her to herd, just something simple. Like geese. Once they were out, Kadin called for Tex to herd them over. He step up a pole for her location so that she would know where he wanted to take them to. He had the houluh herd the livestock over to the location easily enough. Once that was gone, he step up a fake pet up for her to attack and bite to demonstrate she could add in a little more grit for herded if she needed to. With that, they were done!

Another day, another houluh to bring to the ring. Kadin had somehow managed to get three finished with plenty of training and tricks, enough to get them registered, in a relatively short amount of time. On top of all of that, he had more in the works, too, that he planned on bringing here soon. He was pleased with his progress so far, but wondered how long he'd be able to maintain this pace. But not that it mattered all that much, not so long as he continued to work with the houluh he had. He signed all the forms and brought him to the ring, preparing to show Cipher in the arena so that he could potentially be used for breeding in the future. He wasn't sure if he was actually going to use Cipher for breeding, but it never hurt to have the option open for if it became an option in the future.
Once they were approved to begin, it was time to go out into the arena and show off what Cipher has learned to prove that he was actually worthy. Kadin walked into the arena with the houluh and paused, waiting for the go ahead to make sure everyone was prepared for him to begin before he jumped right into it. He turned to the houluh once everything was ready and told him, "Watch me." The houluh wagged his tail, keeping his eyes on Kadin's face while he moved around a bit, showing that he had the houluh's full attention. While still walking, Kadin told him, "Easy." The houluh laid down and relaxed at the word, one leg splayed out while he continued to keep eyes on Kadin, more out of curiosity than anything else. "Good, Cipher!" Kadin said. "Come!" The houluh quickly jumped to his feet, scrambling over to Kadin with his tail wagging madly.
