Dog showmanship is a dog competition. Unlike most shows, showmanship depends much more on the handler than on the dog. Although how well the dog is groomed, its temperament, its attentiveness, and how well its gait is, also affect the score.


Showmanship has specialized equipment, including the showmanship leash, which is a short leash used to show the dog. Showmanship also requires grooming tools, to groom the dog. Before the dog is shown, competitors usually bathe the dog and use a comb and scissors to trim the dog.
