Start by going to dog shows in person.
Check out the website for your Country's kennel club. They usually have a menu of all the shows that happen and you should be able to search for your area.
Walk around the grooming area. Introduce yourself to a few of the breeders/groomers/handlers. Let them know you're interested in showing.
See if you like the atmosphere.
A lot of people love the magic of a dog show, but can't believe the competitiveness they find there once totally involved.
Do NOT start by buying a dog! There is a lot of research that needs to be done into the breed of your choice (I'm assuming it's boxers!). Boxers are a very popular breed, and depending on the show, they are a very difficult breed to champion if you're new!!
