this page is out dated, I am no longer actively involved with Junior handling, although I am always happy to assist young exhibitors. I am currently serving my second term on the CKC Conformation Council.
My "adventures" in junior handling started after joining my local kennel club. It was felt that putting a school teacher in charge of the clubs junior handling competitions was a good idea. Then the same happened in my Doberman club. Little did I know this would lead me to being the Junior handling Representative for the CKC Zone I live in. Being involved with juniors takes dedication, requires fund raising (not my strength but I'm getting better), and a sense of humour. I am enjoying this experience, meeting some great young handlers and developing friendships that I hope will last for many year. This page is dedicated to the Junior Handlers in my zone.
