    First off you need to know if she will be comfortable around crowds, if she is stressed she will not show well and could possibly get sick.
    If she is fine with the crowds then, clean her up make sure there are no dirt or knots in her fur. If you have to bath her it is best to do it a day or two ahead that will allow her natural oils to come up again and she will have a nicer looking coat, then just make sure she stays clean.
    Bring her favorite wand toy and hold it up so she can see it when judging takes place that way she will be looking up and ears will be forward just make sure to stay out of the judges way.
