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.

If you would like information on getting your child started in Jr. Handling, you can check out the information posted on the AKC website at www.akc.org. You may also contact Kymm Cowley, who is the Jr. Handler Co-ordinator for the Heart of Minnesota Great Dane Club. Kymm (pictured below, in her first Jr Handler win in 1967) can be reached her email her at kemac.greatdanes@hotmail.com

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!
