always been an important part of the future of
canine sports, dating back to 1920 when the
first competition for children handlers was
held. Think of Junior Showmanship (also called
“Junior Handling”) as a training ground for a
life-long journey in dog shows and sports.
Children 9 to 18 years old learn basic handling
abilities, and how to care for, and present, different
a competition. While Juniors are judged by an
official AKC Judge, it’s the quality of their
presentation that is judged, not the dog.
Junior Showmanship will teach your child many
important life lessons — how to be a good sport,
how to put one’s mind to something and master
it; and how training can lead to a very special
bond with a dog. And who knows? Your kid just
might love Junior Showmanship so much it might
eventually lead to a possible career path!
