Ringcraft is absolutely fabulous. I do lots of different activities with mine..gun dog training, rallyO, obedience, tracking, scentwork but ringcraft is my absolute favourite. Not only does it teach social skills but a good ringcraft class will teach tips in handling to help hide your dogs faults in the show ring plus moving in different ways, learning about movement and structure and maybe even give you a chance to learn and handle other breeds. I’m just dying to enter a senior handling competition (for age 55 and over). I’m lucky that I have found a ringcraft class run by a judge and breeder of retrievers. There’s also folk in my class that don’t have show dogs but work with their own mixed breed or borrow a show dog. I’ve had a chance to handle Labradors and Dalmatians in the real show ring plus curly coats, goldies and Bernies in practice. Love it!
