GETTING STARTED WITH AKC JUNIOR SHOWMANSHIP

The Mastiff Club Of America has a Junior Handler's Program which encourages young people from age 9-18 years of age to learn about dog shows, to develop their skills as a handler and to promote good sportsmanship.

At each MCOA National Specialty there is a Junior Handlers class - where only Juniors compete. That  is a chance for the Junior Handler to really test their skills and to have a chance at a National Specialty win! The photo at left is this year's winner- Callie Caoua.

Please read the above link about the AKC program and if you are interested in learning more about Junior Handling Program or wish to volunteer your help with the committee, please contact  Kelli DeSoto at ndesoto@wavecable.com
