Conformation / Dog Show Handling

anna best of opClasses are 50-60 minutes long and meet once a week. Classes are conducted outside under our well-lit pavilion with canine astro-turf.

Did you ever stop to think that dog shows are one of the only sports that allows amateurs to compete with professionals?  Intimidating, right?

If you’ve always wanted to learn how to show your own dog, this is the class for you.12079632_10207578567089691_5739522411285550338_n (1)

If you already know how to show your own dog but have a new dog who needs to learn how to be a show dog, this class is also for you!

Anna can help you and your dog get ready to enter the show ring — and win!

Reminder:  For safety reasons, you must wear closed-in shoes. Handlers not wearing appropriate foot attire will not be allowed to participate. 🙁 We suggest that you throw an old pair of sneakers into your car … just in case you forget!
