Why just handle your dog when you can create a Show Dog that owns the ring!!!
Socialize, Train, Proof, Finishing Touches...

   HANDLING CLASS for August 5 is open.  

Wednesday June 3, 2020 (7:00 pm) we re-opened with some changes to our usual format.
Handlers will be asked to book on our website in advance or advise us on the club email whether they plan to attend or not.
 
We will be practising social distancing as much as possible.  Instructors will wear masks and gloves and we ask that all persons (handlers included) wear masks as well. People are expected to maintain distance as much as possible, however we also know the instructor will examine the dogs as per usual.  If handlers have a "clingy" dog we ask they practise a lot before attending with strong verbal communication with the dog to maximize the distance between themselves and the instructor.
 
It will be our first time back since mid-March and we are unsure of the response.  We want to know how many people are expected so as to not impede social distancing.  For this reason, there will be no surprise drop ins, until we can better gauge the number of people we can accommodate.  Please book on paypal or email whether you plan to attend or not.  We are estimating that each instructor could safely conduct 8 dogs per ring, with the obedience working area (no instructor) managing 3 dogs.
 
We will see how it goes on the first evening and review for changes.  Any changes will be posted on this website.
