I agree with everyone else. I'd find a local dog show if possible so you can go check it out. Watching them on TV and actually showing is much different. Here's a website to help you find one:
If you search by state you should be able to find a local show, there's a lot in California. If you talk to breeders talk to them after the breed is done showing. It's much more of a relaxed time.
I will tell you that showing in California is extremely competitive though. It can get expensive too, even though it is loads of fun.
