I started dog sport with a Labrador. Simultaneously working as helper and as coach.
During this time, I have worked with 16 dogs!
(German Shephard/Rottweiler/Giant Schnauzer/Malinois) and have taken part in approx. 120 trials.
Seven of these dogs were police dogs.
4 Dogs I trained to search for narcotics, one dog was trained for TNT.
Currently I have two Malinois dogs. One dog is now 14 years old. Together we passed the IGP3, and several times the FH. Now I am enjoying training my eighteen months old Malinois and I look forward to competing in IGP.
I have judged over 300 trials since becoming a judge, among them various championships. In 2018 I had the honor of judging the DVG Nationals in Little Rock, USA which was a great pleasure and experience!
I also looking forward to judging the FMBB qualifier later this year in the U.K.
