Conformation Classes

“Conformation” is the official name for “dog shows.” While they may seem glamorous, the true purpose of conformation showing is to evaluate breeding stock. The dog’s conformation—his overall appearance and structure—is an indication of the dog’s ability to produce quality purebred puppies, and that is what is being judged in the ring. That’s why mixed-breeds and spayed or neutered purebreds are not eligible to compete.

LKC offers a beginner class, and a class for Conformation practice. The Beginning Handler class will introduce the newcomer to the show ring while the practice class will provide time for experienced handlers to work their dog with the guidance of more experienced handlers.

Beginner Conformation class requirements
Dogs must be able to walk on leash without pulling.

Conformation practice class requirements
Handlers must have ring experience or have completed a Beginning Handler Conformation Class.
