I am a member of the GSDCA, a Teaching Helper and National Level Helper. Having worked numerous National events and Sieger Shows for GSDCA and numerous other alternate breed organizations. I am a Police K9 Certifier and Trainer, and actively handle 2 dual purpose k9s in the city of Racine, WI. I have bred, raised and trained several dogs to achieve IPO3 titles.
I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones at the 2018 GSDCA Sieger Show.
Hello, my name is Pat Kuehn and I live in Troy, New York. I have been involved in the sport of Schutzhund since the age of 13 and have been doing Helper work since 16. I have trained several dogs to various titles and am very active in showing, having competed successfully in many Sieger shows.
It is a great honor for me to have been chosen for this event again, I had the honor of being chosen to perform the Helper work for the front half of the Working Males at the 2015 GSDCA Sieger Show, the front half of the Working Females and back half of the Working Males at the 2016 GSDCA Show, I was also chosen as the alternate for the 2015 GSDCA National IPO Championship and the 2015 WUSV Combined Qualifier. I have been fortunate enough to perform the Helper work for many club events with several different clubs. I would like to thank everyone who has trusted me with their dog.
I wish the best of luck to all competitors and look forward to a great event!
