New Series of Training Classes Begin Monday, February 3, 2014 ~ Inside and Heated

 

We’re offering obedience and conformation classes on Monday evenings, beginning February 3rd and running through March 10th.

6:30 p.m.  Beginning Obedience

60-minute beginning obedience course for people who want to make their dog easier to live with. This is not competitive obedience training, though it could certainly lay the groundwork for that. The instructor, Lori Genaw, wants to make sure that people who took previous classes know that they are welcome to come back to continue their training as well as newcomers who are just getting started. The cost of the obedience class is $50 for 6 sessions. We have a special offer for people who have adopted their dogs from the Humane Society of Preble County– you can take this course for just $25! The class is an hour-long, and is open to puppies and adult dogs. Handlers should be 10 and up, and we ask that minors be accompanied by at least one parent. For dogs that are ready at the completion of the course, you may have your dog tested for a Canine Good Citizen title. This is not only a nice accomplishment for you and your dog, but can ease your situation with home insurance.

7:30  Conformation

Conformation Classes last 60-minutes and over the course of six weeks we will cover showing indoors, stacking in front of a mirror, video feedback, cavaletti work, free-stacking, hand-stacking, gaiting, lead control and bait management. Dogs of all ages and levels of experience are welcome.  Handlers should be at least 10 years old, and we ask that minors be accompanied by at least one parent. The cost for Conformation classes is $25 for six weeks, or $5 per class if you just want to drop  by for one or two.

All classes are free for members of Fort St. Clair Kennel Club. Maybe you should think about joining?

Classes are held in the School Building at Preble County Fairgrounds, 722 S. Franklin St, Eaton, OH. It’s on the south side of the fairgrounds, and has numerous “garage” doors.  Look for parked cars.

If you’d like more information or to pre-register, please call Lori Genaw (937) 696-2585; or email the club at fsckc@earthlink.net.
