You need to google that one. A very highly acclaimed show is NIRO.
What do you want to know anyways? info on rat shows is a bit vague. :roll:

Do you want to know what happens, before and after, health checks, the actual classes, how rats are shown, what?

Quite honestly, Josh, as much as I'd love to help you, I can't read half of what you're written there. :(

Umm..there are no trick, agility or anything like that classes...sorry.

There are the pet classes with different things like most laid back etc., but no trick classes. :) And there are the actual classes like best self dumbo buck or standard ear marked doe, etc...up to Best in Show, but thats the serious stuff.

I think what he's trying to work out is what he needs to do to prepare his rats for a show, what to expect when he gets to a show and which shows he should consider going to. Is that right, Josh?

...how in the heck do you get into showing rats anyway lol? OI i'm confused lol :?
There's a good bit about the hows and whys, here, on the National Fancy Rat Society's website. That was the first link I clicked from Googling... there are plenty more that might be more specific to where other countries.

yeah i don't think its very popular where i am for some reason... maybe its because im the only one in my area who owns rats lol. thats actually untrue as of a few days ago my bf's cousin fell in love with my girls and got her own rat, she made the mistake of getting one, and of getting it from a petstore, but i'm putting her on the right track haha.

Oops! Sorry, I didn't realise that wasn't a US site. Like Poppyseed says, NIRO seems to be the main one, in Illinois.
