|This is Annie and her student handler.|
We also have a young man whose has some dog handling experience but is at risk and needs something that connects him to school. Chinook's Assistant Principal shows Samoyed dogs. She came up with a plan to train the young man with one of her Samoyed dogs in show ring handling. Then if he stays in school, has academic progression and stays out of trouble we will facilitate his showing a the dog in a June dog show in Puyallup. In just a couple of days, the teachers were already commenting on how much more engaged this young man was. He was thrilled and told everyone about it. Our Assistant Principal goes out of her way to help her students and this is just an amazing opportunity for one of our young people.
