Junior Showmanship

Junior Showmanship (also called “Junior Handling”), is a sport for young people aged 9 to 17 where they show off their dog handling skills and compete against other juniors in their age group (class).  The Junior is judged on how well they present their dog to the judge, the dog is not under judgement.
