Hangtown Kennel Club training classes start in April. Beginning Thursday, April 10 the Hangtown Kennel Club of Placerville is offering its first six-week training session for 2014 in both obedience and conformation at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds, 100 Placerville Drive in Placerville.
For those preparing a dog for the breed ring, the conformation class focuses on the finer points of handling your dog in AKC shows. The obedience classes include puppy kindergarten, beginner novice, beginning/intermediate, novice (in preparation for a dogʼs companion dog title) and the very popular rally class.
Classes are held every Thursday at 7 p.m. For the April 10 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 and includes a 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.
