Parade Of Junior Handlers: Friday, May 8 (evening)

Resembling the Parade of Titleholders, this is a fun, non-competitive event meant to showcase our young GSP enthusiasts from ALL areas of the dog world, not just junior showmanship! Eligible ages are 8 to 19 years old. Each participant will receive a personalized ROSETTE to commemorate participation. Each participant should submit a short personal paragraph (75 words or less, typed) to be included in the catalog, which may be read as each junior exhibits their dog. Some examples of things to include in the personal paragraph are: funny facts or general information about the dog, the junior, competition achievements, support roles you fill at shows (grooming, assisting, etc.), school, future plans, or anything else you’re proud of. Entry fee is $20.00 per junior.

Ringside Mentoring
Be a part of the GSPCA NSS Junior Mentoring Session! Your National Juniors Committee is committed to giving you the tools to make you the best possible steward of our breed and that includes understanding handling and general GSP conformation and structure. We think one way we can help is to offer you one-on-one attention in one of the best places you’ll ever have to “master” your GSP know-how; your National Specialty! Juniors will be paired with GSP people who understand junior showmanship demands AND who know GSPs. You’ll watch several classes together at ringside and discuss what you’re seeing in the ring. Participants must be between the ages of 9 and 18 and be interested in learning to show a GSP to the best of your ability!

Participation is FREE, but please reserve your spot by contacting:
Yvonne Hassler-Deterding
11662 Sheep Creek Rd
Phelan, CA 92371
or email to: mystgsp@earthlink.net

Mentoring time is extremely flexible and will be held during judging of regular classes. Further information will be posted at the show and announcements will be made the day of the event.
