AKC Registered Handlers Program
AKC Registered Handler Program Junior Clinic in Canfield, Ohio

The AKC Registered Handlers Program (RHP) showcased its association with the youth involved in the sport of purebred dogs at the recent Steel Valley Cluster shows in Canfield, Ohio (August 6, 2005). More than forty junior showmanship participants received individualized handling instruction from RHP member handlers. RHP Junior Clinics demonstrate a commitment to the core values of the sport; winning and success in the show ring reduce to the relationship between a handler and a dog, and RHP handlers want to foster development of that relationship among Junior handlers.

The AKC Registered Handlers Program would like to thank Oster Professional Products, Pedigree Dog Foods, and Cherrybrook for providing dog-care related promotional products to all RHP Junior Clinic participants at the Canfield, Ohio Junior Clinic.
