Schutzhund training begins with the man and ends with the dog.  It is not a sport of man versus animal; rather, it is one in which we work as a team to ensure the integrity of the breed ─ not only theirs, but ours as well.

As a helper, it is my privilege not only to help the dog realize its full potential, but also the handler.  I do it very well.  I say this, not from arrogance, but with the humility that comes from years of experience.  It is an honor to work dogs.

I will go anywhere in the world to do it.
