Linn County Kennel Club ( www.linncountyclub.com ) is a wonderful resource for classes in the Albany, Salem and Portland areas. Their conformation class is outstanding. They hold classes in the Linn County Expo Center, a very nice facility, very close to I5. Although these classes are an hour south of Portland, the classes and instructors are so good lots of Portlanders make the trek. If you are new to showing definitely take a conformation class with your dog/puppy, you and your puppy will be well prepared for your first show. You can see the latest schedule of classes on their website.
