On June 2, 2020, The FCI Commission for Utility Dogs released trial guidance considerations due to the Global Pandemic. Thank you Mark Pellon for putting together an informative video outlining this guidance.
Congratulations to Samantha Jimenez. She has been selected as the recipient of the Schutzhund USA Youth Scholarship Award for 2020.
She is being recognized by the Schutzhund USA Youth Scholarship Board of Directors for her achievements as a well-rounded student scholar that has excelled in dog sport and evinced good sportsmanship, academic and civic responsibility.
Samantha is an amazing young woman who finds success no matter what obstacles cross her path. She has been a positive role model for everyone around her, and a great ambassador and poster child for the youth in our sport and organizations.
She first began in the sport at age 5, and at age 7 was the youngest competitor to compete in a USCA National event.
Samantha has been accepted to attend Old Dominion University. She is going to be pursuing a degree in physical therapy with a minor in kinesiology / sports medicine
The Schutzhund USA Youth Scholarship Fund has been made possible by generous donations, and established to recognize and reward America’s youth who demonstrate responsibility and dedication to academics and the Schutzhund sport.
