Conformation Handling Practice


This AKC/UKC conformation handling practice is for anyone new to handling ages 9 years and up. Children must have an adult present during the session. This practice time is for individuals who have a new puppy or any dog they want to show in the conformation ring. You and your dog will learn and practice: individual gaiting, group gaiting, free stacking, table training (if you have a small dog), different patterns that are found in the conformation ring (L, triangle, & T), breed specific training, and ring/show etiquette. This weekly scheduled time will allow handlers to practice any or all of these before attending an actual show.

This is a drop-in practice every Tuesday evening beginning at 7 p.m. The cost is $4.00 per dog per session.
