Supporting our Junior Handlers
To help our juniors to be able to dress their best, the Great Smoky Mountain Cluster is providing an area for exhibitors to bring gently used, clean, age appropriate show clothing for our juniors to “shop” for some new outfits for showing their dogs. Please bring any clothes you wish to donate to the designated area located in the upper grooming area, near the family bathrooms. Juniors please feel free to visit the area during the cluster to shop!
