The VKC has handling classes on Wednesday nights in Goochland, and it is worth the drive! Last night we had Tom Dowell teaching the class, and lots of attendees. (The smaller dogs attend in a separate class at 6:30, with the big dogs at 7:15.) It was great to have a new perspective and a man going over the dogs, just to make sure they are accustomed to both male and female judges.
Here are some videos of Clyde and See See. They are 20 months old today. Liz, a club member, is handling one if them (we switched back and forth). She often teaches the class and has handled many breeds professionally.
Thank you Allison, for shooting the videos!
