New York State 4-H and the American Kennel Club (AKC) offer opportunities for youth to show their dog handling skills, which can help youth develop life-long skills including responsibility, patience, sportsmanship, and self-confidence. The 4-H showmanship competitions focus on the handler, not on the dog’s conformation or purebred status, so rescued dogs and mixed breeds are welcome (with restrictions). To learn more, go to the NYS4-H Dog Program website or visit the AKC Junior Showmanship website.
