Bill is working with Jack (Graf Galan vom Dobereich, CGN, BH), a five-year-old Doberman pinscher who is adept at coming up with new training challenges that test Bill’s handling skills, not to mention his sense of humour. As Bill has discovered more about the sport of Schutzhund/IPO, he has come to view training as an art and to appreciate the importance of nurturing the bond between dog and handler.
Suzy and her four-year old female GSD, Keera (Keera von der Rhineburg, BH), are now training toward an IPO1.
Though Dyanne isn’t handling a dog, she is keenly interested in the sport and in the progress of Jack, the Doberman pinscher she co-owns with Bill Williams. She is also an enthusiastic coach, which explains why Bill’s sense of humour is essential.
Jane and her GSD, Star (Star of Hope vom Bayou Land, CGN, TEC) earned a BH at our club trial in September 2014. Jane has recently acquired a new pup, Eska von den Roten Vorbergen, and is looking forward to fulfilling her promise in the sport.
Karen is putting her experience as a trainer to work as she and Next, a rescued malinois, team up to overcome Next’s issues and learn about the sport of Schutzhund. At our club trial in September 2014, this team earned a BH.
Kellie is training her male GSD, Magnum (Magnum von der Bastille), toward a BH. In the near future, Kellie is looking forward to introducing her female, Gwen (Gwen vom Fichtenwald), to the sport.
Ryan is helping Kellie and Magnum as he learns about the sport and helps out at the club. He recently earned entry-level helper certification and is keen to put his new skills to work.
In 2010, Monica brought home a Doberman puppy and started in the sport of Schutzhund/IPO and became a GSSCC member. She is currently training Riva von Luka, BH, IPO-VO, FPr1, IPO1, Am/Cdn RN, BN, P-CD, CGC, CGN, WAC, and her new puppy Caden vom Hexenzauber. Riva and Monica have been fortunate to train with various clubs in the USA and Canada since they began in IPO. She is a member of the GSSCC, the United Doberman Club, the Canadian Kennel Club and the United States Schutzhund Association. At our recent club trial, Monica and Riva not only earned an IPO1, but also captured the awards for high tracking, high IPO1 and high in trial.
