Junior Awards Programs from the AKC

Junior Showmanship offers children between the ages of 9 and 18 years of age an opportunity to develop their handling skills, learn about good sportsmanship, and learn about 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 gain recognition in companion, performance and coonhound events such as obedience, agility, rally, tracking, herding, earthdog, hunt tests, and lure coursing.
