STCA Grooming Video - It's here! It's awesome! We created it for you!
The STCA Grooming Video is the companion piece to the STCA's Guide to Grooming, winner of the 2011 Dog Writers Association of America Maxwell Medallion, and partner piece to the STCA Illustrated Guide to the Scottish Terrier.
Don't miss out on purchasing this "how-to" video demonstration of techniques for honing grooming skills and tackling those more challenging areas of the dog. Whether you are grooming for conformation, performance or a companion, learning to groom your Scottie yourself is an ongoing, but rewarding experience!

STCA PAWS FOR JUNIORS - News from Sueannette Maniscalco
In March our STCA PAWS representatives were at the STBEA Conference, Coventry, England. PAWS and the STCA supported the Juniors' portion of the Conference and helped out where we could. We spoke with the 15 Juniors who exhibited Scotties about how the STCA assists the Juniors in the US with grants and scholarships. We also talked about how individual clubs can help young members. We also learned how the UK helps their Juniors.
The PAWS 2017 Raffle was introduced at the STCA National Rotating. We have already raised more than $200 during our first weekend out! Raffle prizes offered: 1st prize - Scottie Ballerina doll; 2nd prize - Radley Watch; 3rd prize - Scottie figurine. All items have been donated!
Join us for a fundraiser on July 9th at an exhibition of Marguerite Kirmse art - Brunch at the Green Dragon Tavern, Carlsbad, CA. More information will be found in the Bagpiper.
Meanwhile, we are keeping in touch with several young people showing Scotties in Breed and Junior Showmanship. Follow them in interviews and photos in the Bagpiper.
