Conformation Ring Training Text

*Previously called “Breed Handling”
Primary Instructor: Sara (Back-up Instructor: Jeanne)
Designed to give students of all levels the cutting edge they need to present a dog at its full potential in breed conformation shows. Professional handlers and experienced owner/breeder/handlers teach our classes. Students are taught proper pre-ring procedures, ring procedures, etiquette, dress, as well as how to train the dog for best performance in the ring. Dog training includes getting the dog comfortable with the ring experience, proper stacking, gaiting, and free-baiting. Other topics covered are preventing unwanted behaviors in the ring, proofing the stacks, and tricks of the handling trade. Our classes also accommodate Junior Handlers.
Classes are held on a drop-in basis on Thursdays. Please check our calendar for the listing of class times and instructors.
