Handling Classes


Conformation handling classes are held at Happy Pooch Styling and Spa at 873 Hinotes Court, Bldg. B, Unit #3 in Lynden off of Hannigan Road.

Instructors are Georgia Hymmen, Melissa Wiltse, Jordan Murray and Jack Henderson. Classes are on a drop-in basis for $10.00 per class. Class length is approximately 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the number of dogs in class. A handler may work any number of dogs during the class. Click here to watch a video of one of our handling classes.
