Handling & Training Class
Socialize, Train, Proof, Finishing Touches...

  Training classes are divided into two sessions effective March 3, 2021. 

   There is a 6:30 -7:20 pm class and a 7:30- 8:20 pm class.  

  The scroll bars below have been adjusted to reflect this.  

  Masking and social distancing is required for everyone's health. 

  A reminder that training classes are not social events or gatherings. 

  They are two trainers with individual instruction and training sessions.  

If there is a cancellation for any reason it will be posted

on this website prior to 5:00 pm.

This includes for dangerous weather conditions or power outage in Aldergrove.

Trainers/owners please book on our website in advance by paypal. You will find it when you scroll lower.

If you wish to pay cash advise us on the club email whether you plan to attend at lowermainlanddfbc@gmail.com before 5:00 pm that day.

If class is full I will respond back to advise you by email.
If you receive no response prior to 5:00 pm on Wednesday all is good and no need to contact us.
If class fills the payment link is automatically removed.

 Fee Changes: You can now purchase multiple classes at once on paypal. This is for regular conformation, junior handlers and obedience drop in (proofing). 

If you book multiple classes and cannot attend a class,
email us before Wednesday at 5:00 pm and advise us please.
 
We will be practising social distancing as much as possible. 
Instructors will wear masks and gloves and all attendees will wear masks.
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.

L.M.D.F. wishes to thank Cotonfield Dog Centre (Jacob Benaroch) for his support, patience and flexibility during these times.
2021 will be the first year without Diane Benaroch at the helm and we will miss her beauty, charm and caring attitude dearly.   ........ Please review for updates. This is really important especially with changes in Provincial legislation and inclement weather.  Any changes will be posted on this website. <............Check below for updates.....

Classes have experienced an increased popularity this year.  More than expected.  Thank-you.

However, with that comes some challenges, judging by the contacts made from those who were unable to attend classes.

Effective March 3, 2021 there will be a 6:30 pm class for 50 minutes and a 7:30 pm class for 50 minutes.  New Exhibitors with Experienced Handlers, Juniors and Obedience Drop in. 

6:30 pm The 6:30 pm class is open to all.  We recommend this class for new exhibitors, simply because it usually quieter for both you and your dog.

7:30 pm The 7:30 pm class is open to all.  New exhibitors are welcome but it often runs at a faster pace. 

Obedience Proofing has two times: 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm start  to allow for more flexibility for trainers and less congestion at times.  There is no instructor for obedience proofing. The west side is available for parking along the corral grass. The west door not secure if you have things to carry in.

Conformation Instructors: Mrs Teresa Whitehead, Mr Wayne Davidson. Ms Edna St Hilaire is on hiatus for the next while.

Park in the front on either side.

The only dog exercise area is in the corral on the west side.

Please dispose of dog waste in the container provided.

Please respect the neighbours: no barking/whining dogs to be left in the car and
no exercising your dog off the property. 
No loose dogs on property except in the Obedience ring.
Dress in layers, it is not heated.
The flooring is excellent for training.
A portable toilet is available.   

Please bring your own chair.

F.Y.I. Tim Hortons and Paz Fuels is about a 4 minute drive south.
