General Handling Class Information

Handling Classes are usually held three Tuesday evenings each month at about 7 PM.
(See ‘Announcements’ on the Home Page for current details)

Open to anyone interested in practicing Conformation showing with their dog.

Starting in May, classes are held outdoors.

The location will be announced in advance and is usually in a local park. 

In the Winter months, classes are held indoors at
OSU Extension Building/Auditorium, 215 Ringuette St., Grants Pass OR 97527 
Dogs are required to be on leash at all times, unless working in advanced classes. ALL attendees will be required to sign a waiver, and sign in at each class. You will be responsible to control your dog at all times, and respect other dog’s space. All dogs should be clean and are expected to be current on vaccinations for communicable diseases and are showing no signs of any illness.



A $3.00 donation is requested per class. The 4-H Pooch Paw Raiders provide the practice space as a fundraiser. This money goes to the 4-H group so please donate. (That means the wonderful class leaders do this for the love of the sport.)

All participants will be expected to pick up after their dogs, please bring plastic bags and/or paper towels for this purpose. If you do not have materials to pick up, ask, they are available.
