Kitties, Puppies, Ponies - OH MY!
Handlers 101

Sun, Jul 2 from 1pm - 3pm

This event has passed.

Have you ever seen a group of puppies playing on mats and curious how to join them? Or maybe you've witnessed a human pony being led around a play space and you've been eager to learn how to handle a pony. This class will dive into exploring how to handle different human animals that you may encounter. Primarily a lecture/discussion based class, there will be hands-on experience for handling, if we have willing pets join us. This class is open to all levels of experience with Handling on either side of the slash.
