The sessions are designed to train the handler and to provide a positive environment for practice before a show or to train a young dog.

These weekly walk-in run-thrus are designed to allow the team (dog and handler) practice sessions for conformation shows. Leaders are club members experienced in conformation handling playing the role of show judge. The classes emphasize standard AKC ring patterns as wall as stacking and gaiting. The sessions are not designed to train the handler but to provide a positive environment for practice before a show or to train a young dog.
