Bill & Barb Jensen were primary founding members of the Minnesota Chapter of Navhda.  You can read more about that in this article in the VHD magazine from May 2019.

Bill judged the first NAVHDA test in the US in April 1971, and retired from judging in 2010 with the following totals:

  • 241 Total Testing Days
  • 1171 Natural Ability Dogs Judged
  • 60 Utility Preparatory Dogs Judged
  • 376 Utility Dogs Judged
  • 588 Invitational Dogs Judged
  • 2196 Total Dogs Judged

In early 2020, the Minnesota Chapter Board of Directors approved the formation of the Bill Jensen Apprentice Judge Scholarship Fund to assist chapter members with offsetting the expenses of becoming a NAVHDA Judge.  Apprentice Judges are required to cover all of their own expenses for traveling to and from tests and oftentimes their own lodging and meals while doing so.    They are also required to travel out of their home region.  Please consider making a donation to this fund to help our Apprentice Judges offset these expenses!
