Handling Classes

WHOOOOO can come?   All are welcome to attend the Asheville K.C handling classes on Monday, Oct 31 at 7PM. You and your dog/s are

encouraged to dress up and have a Howlin’ good time in the social time for you and your dog/s, as well as  in handling class practice.  

We will have cup cakes and candies for humans, and Doggie Treats for doggies….without the chocolate😄


The Asheville Kennel Club Fall, 2022 Session of Handling classes will start on Monday Sep 19, 2022 at 7PM. This session will run for 8 weeks and will end on Nov 7, 2022 ( That will be the last class session for this year.)

Classes will be held at the Companion Dog Training Center, 31 Monticello Rd., Weaverville, NC .  If you are bringing  a new dog or joining us for the first time, you must bring  a current Rabies vaccination certificate. (Not just the tag.) You will need to fill out liability waivers and other paperwork.  Also, bring a lead and training treats.  Only one dog per person at a time. Please do not enter the building before 7 pm, or without an okay from Marie or Moshe.

The fee per class is $5 for non club members and $3 for club members.

Supervised children of any age are welcome at Handling Class, but only children 12 or older can take part in the class.  

We are looking forward to seeing you all and your dogs.

Thank you.
