Long Down Judge:
Dorwin Anderson (GSSCC)
Acting Head Judge:
Jim Chrisp (GSSCC)
I have been in the dog sport since 1991. I started with a 3-year-old Doberman named Ares, but soon after achieving a Schutzhund 1, bought a German Shepherd puppy, and I was hooked! Since then I've trained 4 dogs to IPO 3, and others to BH, FH, and AD titles along the way. I’ve been a competitor at Club, Regional, and National levels, and have also competed at the WUSV. I have also served as Team Canada Captain, co-Captain, and will again be Captain for the WUSV 2017. From the start of my days in this sport, I have been a member of the Winnipeg Working Dog CIub, serving in all positions on the executive. I began the Canadian Judge's program in 2006, and since then have judged in Canada, United States, and at the inaugural IPO trial in Barbados. For the past 2 years I have been the National Helper Director, and now am a member of the Judge’s Committee.
I wish all of the competitors good luck, and thank the organizing committee for all of their hard work.
My love of training dogs started as an 11 year old boy with a Doberman named Grunt and we were welcomed by the members of Richmond Schutzhund Club. I currently train at Lower Mainland German Shepherd Dog Club in Langley, BC with my German Shepherd, Nash vom Wolfsdreieck.
I started helper work when I was old enough. I have been able to work dogs at club, regional and national competitions. Doing helper work is still a passion and love of mine. I am currently the National Helper Coordinator for the GSSCC. One of my goals was to breed and handle a dog to the WUSV. I was able to do this with Alvis vom Albi (aka Spike). My breedings have produced four dogs that have competed at the WUSV. As a handler, I have competed multiple times at club, regional, national and world competitions.
Looking forward to the future as a trainer, helper and judge.
