You should tell your breeder if you are looking for a conformation show puppy or a companion/pet puppy. Most good breeders consider ALL of their puppies to be companion puppies, and Border Terrier people will tell you that Borders can do it all-obedience, agility, earthdog, tracking, flyball, therapy dog, etc.. A conformation show puppy is one whose physical characteristics and temperament meet or exceed the requirements of the breed standard. This should be the best specimen of the breed you can find – one with obvious potential. Keep in mind that showing is very time consuming and expensive. Don’t be forced into showing if you are not really interested in the hobby.
