Beginning Thursday, April 11, the Hangtown Kennel Club of Placerville is offering its first 6-week session for 2013 of obedience and conformation classes at the El Dorado Fairgrounds in Placerville.
Classes offered include both breed and obedience training. For breed work, conformation handling classes focus on the finer points of handling your dog in AKC shows. Available classes include puppy kindergarten; beginner novice obedience, beginning/intermediate obedience, novice obedience (in prep for your dog’s CD title), and the popular rally class.
Classes are held Thursdays each week at 7 p.m. For the April 11 class only, dog owners are asked to arrive by 6:30 p.m. for the registration process and the fitting of collars and leashes.
Pre-registration is required for all obedience classes. Puppy and beginning obedience is $90 (includes leash and collar). All other obedience classes are $75 for the six-week session. Conformation classes are offered on a “drop-in” basis, at $5 per class. Proof of all age-appropriate vaccinations is required at the first class.
