Calling all kiddos!  Get ready for the first-ever Trainer in Training contest at the Great Iowa Pet Expo, sponsored by Stephanie Peters of Plucky Paws, LLC!  Kids will briefly introduce themselves and their dog, take 90 seconds to show off their training skills, and then engage in 90 seconds of Q&A with Stephanie.  Handlers may demonstrate any skill they wish, including basic manners, cooperative care, tricks, or dog sports.
