Conformation, Handling and CGC Classes
Conformation & Handling
Showing dogs can be a captivating hobby; it's harder than it looks to the casual observer, but solid preparation can make it easier to enjoy and succeed in the sport. Handling classes will teach both you and your dog how to compete in conformation and will give you both valuable practice before you attend an actual show. Your dog will need to learn how to stack, stand still and gait before being shown.
