The Northern Center for Lifelong Learning will offer a class about how show dogs are prepared and the standards they must meet in advance of the Marquette Kennel Club’s Labor Day weekend dog show. The class will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 20, in the Community Room at Peter White Public Library. Mary Lee Kirkum and Dale Hamari of Marquette’s American Kennel Club will explain and demonstrate what will take place at the dog show. They will also give a brief history of the American Kennel Club and talk about various breeds of dogs, obedience classes, requirements, rallies and how to enter the show. The cost is free for NCLL members and $5 for non-members. To register, contact Will Huggard at (906) 228-2316. The registration deadline is Friday, Aug. 15.
