Lisa Little – Tracking Coordinator
It is my pleasure once again to be the tracking co ordinater for this years AWDF.
I have been in the sport since 1991 and became a judge in 2007. Started out with Rotties then Sherherds and Malinois, currently working my bouviers. Competed at many Dvg Championships and went the BSP dvg in Germany with my malinois. Have judged tracking at several championships and been tracking co ordinater also for championships.
I wish everyone good luck this year and also to remember to have fun.
Yours in the sport,
Helen Dumond – Tracklayer
I started my dog sport life in 1977. First in AKC, obedience, tracking and conformation. The breeds I have had are Dobermans, Labrador Retrievers, Rottweilers, Pembroke Welsh Corgis and German Shepherds. Multiple CDs, CDXs, UDs, TDs and TDXs. Got into the sport of Schutzhund in 1978 with Dobermans, Labrador Retriever, Rottweilers and German Shepherds. With multiple BHs, Sch 1s, 2s, 3s and FHs. My first FH was in 1978 on my yellow Lab, Lena. 1986 FH on my Dobie, Geisha. My GSD, Dori's FH in 1994. Won the FH Championship in 2015 with my GSD bitch, Baffy. I've laid tracks for multiple Clubs, Regionals and Nationals and for multiple organizations while being in the Dog Sport. As you can tell, tracking is my favorite phase.
