Anyone at any level who is planning to show a dog in the conformation ring should definitely take advantage of this class. Beginners who have never been in the ring before will learn what to expect when they head off to that first show--how to enter the ring, how to move with their dog, how to keep the dog steady so the judge can examine it, how to get their dog into that perfect stack, what they should be doing while the judge is examining the other dogs, etc.
Those who have already been showing dogs can get some extra practice, warm up before that next big show, give their dog experience in the ring, start a new dog on the conformation path, get help with a shy or timid dog, get a helpful critique of their handling and tips on ways to show their dog even better, learn about upcoming shows they can enter or maybe even some venues they haven't heard about before.
Instructors are Donna Lyczkowski and Terry Harville. This is an on-going, drop-in class; cost is $15 Non-Members (NM) and $10 Members (M), per class.
Class is on Sundays, 2-3 p.m. [CLASS CODES: CH101A-NM and CH101A-M]
