♦Beginning September 1st Show Handling classes will be held indoors at the Nordic Myst Dog Training building in Endwell. During the summer months, Show Handling classes are held at Otsiningo Park. We will try to start class at 7:15 instead of 7:30. For any one who has not attended our classes at the park before, we will  be on the right hand side of the road,  just before the half-way point of driving around the main circle.
