Show Prep Classes

Show Prep Classes are used to simulate a trial but in a more relaxed atmosphere. Treats, toys, additional commands, and/or praise are allowed. When time permits, handlers may repeat exercises, parts of exercises or rally stations.

Pre-registration is required for all classes! Entries close at NOON on Wednesday before Show Prep Weekend. All entries are done electronically. Mail-in or paper entries are no longer offered.

Obedience Show Prep

Obedience Online Entry Form

Utility begins at 8:00am or 8:30am, followed by Open, Novice, and Beginner Novice.

Each dog may have a maximum of two (2) runs, either in the same class or in two (2) different classes. For each run, one (1) exercise may be repeated. All other exercises have only one (1) attempt and may not be repeated. This keeps things moving in a timely fashion, in consideration and respect for the volunteers and other teams waiting their turn.

Obedience Show Prep days are busy. To help with foot traffic inside, all dogs shall remain in the back room unless in the ring. Non-entered dogs are welcomed for socialization and/or companionship, but need to stay in the back as well. 

Cost per run is $7.00 for non-members and $6.00 for members. Volunteers get one free run.

Use online entry form. One dog per entry. If you show multiple dogs, submit multiple entries. Please no entries by email or text.

A confirmation email will be sent immediately upon your entry submission. A full running order with times will be sent by email after entries close.

Note: Classes are based on AKC regulations, but special arrangements may be made when preparing for both UKC and AKC trials.
