Need a Conformation Show Handler?

First of all, what is a Conformation Handler?

A Conformation or Show Handler is not a person who leads obedience classes.
If you are looking for someone to do that, go to our section “Need an Obedience Trainer?”.

paw_red[1]Some people like to show their dogs in the conformation ring. When showing for conformation, a dog competes against other dogs and is judged against a breed standard. Each breed has a standard that describes the ideal representative dog. The breed standard covers all aspects of the dog’s appearance.

paw_red[1] A Show Handler is a professional who knows how to ‘handle’ your dog in the show ring. He/she will take your dog and present it in the best possible way in front of the judge. A Handler’s duties vary but may include some or all of the following: bathing the dog, grooming and clipping, boarding, and/or handling. They also train their clients’ dogs how to behave in the show ring. Many provide classes to those clients who wish to learn how to show their own dogs.

paw_red[1] Handlers may travel across the country to show specific dogs in various different cities and provinces. Some will take dogs to the United States to compete there.
