The ACKCSC is committed to its junior handlers. The goal of the ACKCS Junior Showmanship program is to promote and encourage juniors to participate in the sport of AKC purebred dog events with Cavaliers, and to become active in the ACKCSC. Nationals Week offers many opportunities for junior handlers – to compete, to learn and to be social. It’s a time to connect with friends and competitors from across the country.
