Conformation (Show Handling) Classes are offered by TIKO for both Novice and Seasoned handlers alike. This class is for those handlers who wish to prepare themselves and their dogs for entry into CKC Conformation Shows. Show ring etiquette and handling, proper stacking and gaiting of dogs are taught. This class is an excellent opportunity to work your dog in a show like environment, to introduce your young dogs to mats and show ring handling, and to get feed back on your and your dog's performance. This is crucial for the young future stars and beneficial for the seasoned show dogs as well.
Classes with Rhoda will be broken down to two classes as follows: (please note that class size will be capped at 8 dogs maximum. Pre-registration is required.
a) Novice (6pm) - for handlers with limited show ring experience. This is a chance to learn the basics of show ring etiquette and show handling procedures for you and your dog. Patterns, stacking, general presentation will all be covered.
b) Advanced (7pm) - is for the more experienced handlers to hone their handling skills and get constructive feedback to help improve their and their dog's show ring performance.
On the weeks between sessions with Rhoda, participants are encouraged to take advantage of the available open mat time to practice their skills and work their dogs in a show like environment. Please note that mat time sessions do not include extra instruction. Students are welcome to take turns "being the judge" to help their fellow students and also to "see what the judge sees".
