Our drop-in conformation classes specialize in training YOU to show your dog. Here is a success story from one of our class members. Thank you for sharing, Debbie!
Brodie and I learned much in Risë's conformation class. In an extremely positive environment, we had fun and also learned better techniques. I was an inexperienced handler when we started in January 2012.
Here's the proof. Brodie achieved a Group 4 win and his Grand Championship in 9 months.
Brand new agility winners!!! Congratulations to Carol & Tudie, Dan & Parker, and Linda and Gracie! Parker finished his novice JWW title and Tudie and Grace began FAST, JWW, and STD!!
UPDATE: Tudie finished her JWW title and Grace had both Novice Preferred Standard and Jumpers titles under her belt. We are PROUD of these teams!!!
Our latest Rally-O star player, Tynen, finished his Rally Novice title at the Pembroke Welsh Corgi national specialty and was awarded this special performance title ribbon. Way-to-go, Patsy and Tynen! (Ty is ten years young and now in training for Rally Advanced--never say old dogs can't learn new tricks!)
Roxie and handler, Amy Zbylut, have begun competing in agility trials. Watch for more news from this team!
