Conformation is a canine discipline that caters to purebred dogs, or registered, to get the championship compliance breed standard.

Conformation is primarily intended for the selection of the best breeders for a race, to improve the breed, but appeals equally to individuals who only want to get their dog's champion title.

As the dog must allow itself to be look up in detail by the judge, it is important to practice the dog to be examine from the “teeth to tail” without moving.

To this end, we offer evening conformation classes given by different people so the dog will get familiar with all kinds of personality.

Although this discipline requires less of a workout than other canines disciplines, it remains that a good symbiotic relationship must exist between the handler and the dog. The handler must learn to show the qualities of his dog and minimize it's defects.

Conformation is a beautiful discipline to share with our dog for all seasons.

As the level increases, so will the difficulty of the exercises. There is no judge who tells you what to do. It is a great challenge.

Come and enjoy!
