The Heart of Minnesota Great Dane Club is excited to announce that
Jr Handling competition will be offered during our August 2008 Dane Specialties.

Just as today’s top Great Dane Owners/Handlers started out as Juniors, the top Great Dane handlers of the future are today’s Juniors.

We hope you will encourage your junior handler to work on developing their showmanship and handling skills.

We will look forward to seeing them at our August 2008 shows!!!!!!

Ms. Kymm Cowley is with Am/Can CH Glorilane’s Billy Bonick (in the 2nd picture below) after winning Best Jr. Handler in Rapid City back in 1969. Today Kymm continues to show Great Danes and attributes her continued love of showing to getting the proper training and support from her parents and having a wonderfully trained dog to show!
