RING CRAFT CLASSES
"Ring craft is the art of presenting (standing and moving) your dog or puppy to a judge in a way that is correct for your breed type."
Whether you are new to the dog showing scene, returning to train a new puppy, or just want to socialise your new puppy you are most welcome. We are a small club that welcomes all breeds to our Wednesday night classes.
At our classes groups of like-minded people meet on a regular basis and get great enjoyment from training their dogs. A great deal of time and effort goes into presenting a dog for exhibition at a show and getting your dog to perform in the ring is a lot harder than it looks. A dog that only wants to slouch in the corner, or ambles around the ring ungracefully will not impress the judge. It is important that you learn how to present your dog in the show ring to show off all its finer points.
Ring craft classes can also be used as the basis of training you and your dog on how it should be handled and presented even if you have no thoughts of entering the 'show scene'. They are not just for people wanting to show their dogs but for everybody with a dog, and they will teach the basics such as :
- Socialisation with people and other dogs
- Training your dog to walk on a lead nicely without becoming distracted by people or other dogs.
