2021 DJAA Advanced Institute

July 22-25, 2021

The Dog Judges Association of America Non-Sporting Institute is now history. DJAA extends our thanks to the twenty wonderful seminar presenters. The many owners and handlers who provided lovely dogs for students to assess were of critical and utmost importance to the success of these seminars. And the judges, who came from all corners of the country, listened, participated and learned for four educational days are all better for this experience.
