It has come to my attention that most of the students for tomorrow evenings classes will be missing due to attending the Celtic Cluster Dog Shows. With that in mind, and the fact that I will also have a long day at the show tomorrow I’ve made the decision to cancel the evenings classes. As it’s not a weather related cancellation, I will be making every attempt to reach students by text, Facebook, email, and phone. If you see this post and I have not contacted you yet, please send me a message confirming that you saw it. That will save me some time and worry trying to make sure everyone receives the message in a timely fashion!

For those of you showing tomorrow in Obedience, Rally Obedience, and Conformation…Good Luck and Have Fun!

For those students and clients who havenever attended a show before, this is a great opportunity to check out the dog show world! There are shows all weekend. Obedience and Rally are held Thursday through Saturday. Conformation is Wednesday through Sunday. There are specialties and supported entries for Bernese Mt Dogs, Siberian Huskies, German Shorthaired Pointers and more! Plenty of vendors for shopping too.

A complete schedule can be found at Jim Rau Dog Shows (at go to Show Programs and click on the day you plan to attend. Once you have the schedule you will see a list of all the breeds with the number entered, the time that breed will be showing, and the ring it will be showing in. Keep in mind that several breeds are usually scheduled for the same time in a ring and so the breed you are looking for may not be in until breeds before it have shown.
