The Mid Atlantic Italian Greyhound Club of Central Maryland is offering a seminar  on Friday, March 16, 2018 after the judging in their competition ring is complete for the day. This is an educational class offered to provide a visual concept of the AKC Italian Greyhound Standard. The class will present, to both participants and spectators, an active example of the various components of the standard. An AKC judge will evaluate each dog and award the one, which in the judge’s opinion, exemplifies the standard in that individual class.
