Junior Showmanship

Since 1934, the Westminster Kennel Club has bestowed the title of Best Junior Handler to one deserving youngster. These talented handlers come from all across the country to be judged on their dog handling skills with eight advancing to the finals competition held at Madison Square Garden. These dedicated dog lovers spend countless hours training, grooming, and perfecting their ring techniques throughout the year to qualify for a chance to show at Westminster. Approximately 100 qualified juniors annually make their way to New York City for the most prestigious junior handling competition in the sport. The Westminster Kennel Club congratulates these juniors for their continued involvement and future success in the sport of purebred dogs and beyond.
