Conformation Class At Oriole

DogShowPosterIt’s back !  Oriole is once again offering a handling class on Monday nights in that oldest of dog sports – conformation.

This is an 8 week class taught by instructor Paula Waterman.

In this class, you and your dog will be introduced to ring procedure, ring patterns, stacking, gaiting and judging criteria. Emphasis will be based on positive reinforcement techniques, including shaping with some clicker training.  By the end of class, the handler and dog should be able to enter a conformation show with confidence and experience.
