    You are not required to be involved in Junior Showmanship to utilize The Canine Corner, however it is an excellent program for children who would like to learn more about purebred dogs and the sport of purebred dogs.

    Junior Showmanship offers children between the ages of 9 and under 18 years of age an opportunity to develop their handling skills, learn about good sportsmanship, dogs, and dog shows. Juniors are judged on their ability to present, or handle, their dogs as they would in the breed ring.

    Juniors may also compete and earn titles on their dogs in many AKC Events. The Junior Recognition program awards points for participation in all AKC events and additional points for earning qualifying scores or placements. Learn about Obedience, Agility, Rally, Tracking, Hunt Tests, Herding, Field Trials, Earthdog, Lure Coursing, Coursing Ability and Coonhound Events in which all juniors are eligible to compete.
