Basic Conformation Class
In this class, students will learn how to stack, gait, and free bait their dogs. There will also be instruction on “ring etiquette” — ring procedures and general dog show knowledge — as well as the AKC point system, show attire, and general canine anatomy. Additionally, students will be asked to make a brief presentation on the breed of their dog and its standard.
Advanced Conformation Class
This class builds on the basic skills covered in the Basic Conformation Class. An additional focus is on advanced ring patterns, canine structure and its relationship to movement, tact box essentials, and how to compete with Professional handlers.
