The last day for eligibility qualification for Junior Showmanship for the AKC Eukanuba National Championship is October 10, 2012. AKC Staff must first have received validation of the 3.0 Grade point average to add a Junior to the list of those being eligible to enter with the Superintendent. Once all criteria have been confirmed by the AKC, you may proceed to enter with Onofrio Dog Show Organization.
