BCOA has a rich history of supporting youngsters and their love of Basenjis.
From the competitive venues, including AKC Junior Showmanship and performance events, to creative and academic endeavors, BCOA encourages young Basenji enthusiasts to become more involved in all aspects of responsible ownership.
Juniors represent the future of Basenjis and in addition to learning the mechanics of showing their Basenji, Juniors learn the importance of good sportsmanship. BCOA tracks accomplishments of Juniors competing in AKC events and proudly keeps a tally of all Juniors who handle Basenjis in AKC shows.
