Conformation Handling

Conformation handling classes are for those dogs and handlers preparing to show in conformation. This is a mini class, meaning you can register for a single night or for multiple nights.

Fee: $10 for non members (cost is per class)

2023 Conformation Class Schedule (dates will be added as scheduled)
Tuesdays 6:30 – December 5, 12, 19 and 26th

** Pre-register for class ** You can register for just one session or for multiple sessions (select “Add Additional Registration”). We encourage pre-registration so that payments and vaccination records are completed in advance, but we do allow drop-in attendance as well.

Please arrive a few minutes early
Bring your dog, a buckle collar (or a show lead if you have it), leash (no retractable leads)
Bring soft treats (more than you think you’ll need!)
BRING COPIES of current vaccinations and rabies certificate (if you haven’t already submitted)
If your dog has any signs of illness, do NOT bring them to class

The State of Iowa is requires that we keep copies of both the rabies certificate and DAPPV vaccination records on file for dogs taking classes in the building. Bring copies that we can keep (or email them in advance). You will also need to provide new copies every time you start a new session. We can only accept vaccination records from a veterinarian.

All dogs over the age of 12 weeks must have a rabies vaccination and certificate. This is a state law we are required to follow.

Dogs not registered in a class are not permitted on DMOTC premises.
