At what point of training?
At the day of the show?
During show training only?
A young dog going through IPO training to the same time?
Simply said: The more training, the more fat and protein; that said everything depends on your training ( most dogs just need regular food, because what people tend to call "training" is just laughable for dogs ).
At the day of the show a little food in the morning, right before the performance some eggyolk and some dextrose.
Personally I believe in green tripe and regular kibbles...

Hundmutter, our "show trained" dogs need around twice (up to 2 1/2 ) as much calories as "normal" IPO dogs ( given that those dogs are trained for IPO, too - but that's normal procedure over here, no trial, no good show rating ).
But at that point we are talking about show training, sled training, bicycle training, at least all of it twice a week, pulling on leash daily,all of it for several month, besides the IPO training 3 or 4 times the week; some people make use of treatmills, too.
But I guess outside of Germany that's not the norm...So good healthy food should be fine.
