Junior Handling Championships 2009
Dogs are a passion for Melanie Parker who has been training to be a handler since she was 9 years old, and all her hard work has paid off. Melanie landed in the top two for all of Canada at the National Junior Handling Championships, held in Brantford, Ontario. She was slated to represent Canada at the Crufts Dog Show in England this February, but due to a rule change the other girl who had aged out will be allowed to continue. Junior Handlers compete until they reach the age of 18.
