Our classes are aimed at providing conformation enthusiasts with the tools and support to successfully enjoy the sport of exhibiting their dogs at the dog show. We will strive to provide information and guidance regarding the showing of purebred dogs. We will practice ring procedure though we will not limited to this. There are so many important factors inside and outside the show ring.
Our classes consist of new enthusiasts and veteran exhibitors and everyone benefits from each other. New exhibitors are mentored and the experienced are able to provide the much-needed benefit of their experience. We truly aim to support the sport and make it a positive activity, to support each other and to keep dogs shows alive.
Karen Fairbairn “I have been involved with showing, breeding and training purebred dogs since 1982. I have had the benefit of knowledgeable and supportive mentors, fellow breeders and exhibitors and I would like to give others the opportunity to experience the same. “With this sport dying out fast, we all need to do what we can to revive it and keep it going!”
Tom Tilford “I’ve been involved with showing dogs for about 10 years. Over time I’ve learned the value of mentorship by positive, knowledgeable, supportive people. As a coach, I can continue to learn and, in turn, provide the benefits of these supports to others who love their dogs and are interested in having fun at the dog shows. I really like when people work together to learn, succeed and have fun.”
Liana Muloney “I have been breeding and showing Shetland Sheepdogs for 32 years and spent 10 years as a professional all- breed handler. I encourage any one interested in the sport of showing purebred dogs to come and join us! We love to "talk dogs" and exchange ideas. Most importantly we like to have fun!”
Ashley Atterbury “I have been involved in the purebred world of dog shows as long as I can remember! I actively show and breed Shelties with my mom under the "Cincerlee" prefix. Stop by and meet us- we love to make new friends!”
Connie Richard “I have been involved in all aspects of the dog world since 1989. But it was not until my first "show" prospect, approximately 15 years ago, that got me hooked on conformation! I am continually learning through the help of others and I hope that I can pass on some "tips" also. I have met many great people and look forward to meeting many more and having a ton of fun along the way! Dog people truly are some of the best!”
