The American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club
Junior Showmanship Programs
The American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club would like to thank all Cavalier Juniors for all the hard work and dedication that you put into working with our wonderful breed. The primary goal of the program is to promote and encourage juniors to participate in the sport of American Kennel Club purebred dog events with Cavaliers, as well as to become active in the ACKCSC.
In 2014, the ACKCSC created four new scholarships/stipends for our Cavalier Junior Handlers. This is something new for our club. We hope it will help reward Cavalier Junior Handlers academic achievements and maintain their enthusiastic interest in the sport of purebred dogs. The first will help our Cavalier Junior Handlers outside of dog shows in higher education. The other three recognize and support our Cavalier Junior Handlers achievements in the Junior Showmanship ring.
