Ringcraft (Dog Show Training)

This is a good definition of ringcraft training, copied from the UK Kennel Club's website: "A great deal of time and effort goes into presenting a dog for exhibition at a show and even getting your dog to perform in the ring is a lot harder than it looks. A dog that only wants to slouch in the corner, or ambles around the ring ungracefully will not impress the judge. It is important that you learn how to present your dog in the show ring to show off all its finer points.

This can be very difficult to achieve; the dog has got to want to show off for its owner or handler in the show ring and you must work hard together to build this rapport. The people who run Ringcraft clubs have a great deal of experience in the 'show scene' and will be able to show you all the techniques to get the best out of your dog."

Ringcraft classes at The Dog House are run by Dawn Inett who is an International Championship show judge of Cairn Terriers. Dawn has judged Speciality championships in USA, Canada, Scandinavia and all over Europe. Dawn is also approved to judge Hungarian Pumis and Australian Terriers. 

Ringcraft classes run weekly and are prebookable on a 4 weekly basis for only £12
