Snacks! Around here, show food usually is not all that great, so I usually
try to take some alternative. Even if it's something like cereal bars, some fruit or yogurt & beverages (water/sodas) for yourself. Pack yourself a small lunchbox and you'll be set.
A map, and plenty of time ahead so you'll be sure to get there with ample time to park, set up, potty yourself & your dog, and then time to settle (or amp up!) your dog.
And, bungee/clamp clips of some sort. You never know what you'll need them for, but they really come in handy if you DO need them! Shelly & The Boys (Mom's a NOTORIOUS overpacker!)

This is what I take... Folding chairs, sun screen tarp, crate, cool pads/ice packs, a cooler with snacks, bait/treats for the dog, toys, any last-minute grooming supplies, a spray bottle with plain water in it (to mist dogs if it's hot), comfortable shoes and an outfit to change into after I'm done showing, sunglasses, camera, poop bags! I can't really think of anything else right now. We do have this little fridge thing that plugs into the lighter outlet in the car to keep things cold. Emotion: smile

Howdy Cin,
As far as snacks for people I take Power Bars. They don't melt like the choclate covered health food bars or candy bars.

I'm sorry I don't know what kind of dog you have, but what about grooming equipment? Will the breeder have that? Also,snacks for you and treats for bait if you use it.

My list, keeping in mind that I'm usually in the ring at some point...

Change of clothes, I got peed on once by a horny boy, I was the only vertical thing he could reach and there was a *** in heat nearby Emotion: wink Spare shoes I always wear my normal shoes to go in and out and my "show" shoes once I'm out of the weather.
Nylons, great if it's cooler
Jacket as it ALWAYS rains at outdoor shows and the temperature at indoor ones fluctuates depending on where you're sitting. Extra deoderant as if it's not freezing or raining, it's 95 degrees out. Extra collar
Show Lead
Bowl & Water
Bait & Treats
Camp chair (The windbreaker material ones that fold up and go in a little bag, easier to carry)
Vicks, if you have a boy, because they LOVE girls in heat Paper towels. NEVER go to a show without paper towels. You will inevitably have pee, poo, or puke to clean up out of the crate if you don't. Cash. At least $20. Parking, catalogs (I always get catalogs for pedigree research, to mark as I watch, etc.)
