DFR Blogger Kayla Bertagnolli reminds junior handlers of the new rules that were implemented this year, and consoles those Master class competitors who’ve had to return to the regular Open classes. The new year has already begun for juniors looking to qualify for the big shows of 2013 and 2014, so there’s no time like the present to stay focused on your goals, especially with the holiday break right around the corner.
