We are excited to announce that conformation classes will now be offered at TCOTC! This class will teach owners/handlers how to best train and present their dogs for the Conformation ring. Conformation instructor, Jim Shea, uses positive training methods 100% of the time. Conformation simulates the ring experience and covers show/ring procedures, judges and judging protocols, stacking, gaiting, judge’s examinations, motivating/developing ring presence, and other aspects of the conformation experience. This class is geared towards building competitive teams, achieving optimal ring presence and team performance.
This class is for both novice and experienced handlers, and dogs/puppies of any age. Dogs are expected to have appropriate vaccinations for their age. Handlers provide their own show leads, collars, bait, etc. The class will be $6 per class for members of TCOTC and $8 for non-members. No preregistration is required for these classes, simply come to the club on the scheduled nights.
