The 2012 William J. Trainor Award, plus Northeast Regional Junior Handlers

Senior Editor Christi McDonald introduces this year’s recipient of the William J. Trainor Award, Rick Krieger. A professional handler who once apprenticed to the 2000 award winner, Wendell Sammet, Rick was selected for his “meritorious service to the dog world.” Find out about Rick’s many good works within the dog community, and learn about the legendary dog man for whom the award is named.

The 2012 Northeast Regional Junior Handler of the Year was decided late last month in West Springfield, Mass., and DFR Blogger Kayla Bertagnolli has a report on the winners. Thanks to the generosity of several local dog clubs, four talented juniors earned scholarship money again this year. Find out about the competition’s eligibility requirements, and meet the young men and women who placed first through fourth.

Be sure to check out our photo galleries, where you’ll find recent winners and candid photos from shows held near and far. Just click on Show Scene below the masthead banner, or select any of the images in the left-hand column of our home page.
