New CKC/Eukanuba Junior Handling Champions Triumph in Winnipeg

Junior Handlers enjoyed more of that wonderful Winnipeg weather for their National Finals on August 13th, with new national champions being chosen from an outstanding field of Zone Champions from across the country. Best Overall Junior - Conformation was Nigel Phillips, continuing a Phillips Family tradition of outstanding achievement, from Ontario (Zone 6) and Best Overall Junior - Obedience was the poised and talented Haley McCrea, also from Ontario (Zone 6). There must be something special in the water out there in Zone 6!

Again this year, sponsor Eukanuba and CKC will help make it possible for Conformation champion Nigel Phillips to travel to Crufts to compete at the International Junior Handling Competition in March 2012. It will be a wonderful trip for Nigel and the CKC will have a stellar Junior Handler representing Canada at Crufts. Nigel can ask his older brother Tony, a former National Champ and Crufts competitor, about all those funny Birmingham accents.

Obedience Champion Haley McCrea will receive a $1000 educational bursary through the kindness of Eukanuba for her talent and hard work. Congratulations to Haley for an exceptional performance.

Marvellous organizer and Nationals Chair Diane Fast added some pomp and circumstance to the event by having a bagpiper and the junior members of the Manitoba Kennel Club presenting provincial and territorial flags lead the competitors into the ring. Huge thanks to Diane, her team and the Judges, particularly Joe Lobb, for their hard work and enthusiasm. They were consummate Manitoba hosts and helped present an unforgettable weekend for competitors and their families. Check the Junior Nationals Facebook page for posts and photos.
