AKC Junior Handling Program

Visit the AKC website for a description of the AKC Junior Handling Program

TVKC promotes junior handling skills in all disciplines.  Junior Handlers (ages 9-18) are included with their family in a TVKC household membership. They are eligible to take TVKC Junior Handling classes free of charge.

Junior Handlers can bring someone else’s dog to a TVKC class to learn proper handling skills. In order to show a dog in a Junior Handler class in an AKC sanctioned dog show, the Junior Handler must have their own dog or co-own a dog. This is an AKC requirement for AKC Junior Handling competition.
