Chris Carr's accomplishments as a trial helper (WUSV 1998, Many Times National Championship Helper, WUSV 2001 Slovenia - Alternate, Masters' Championship) overshadow his accomplishments as a handler-trainer. Chris has shown at the national level with his HOT GSD, Vien, and the crowd pleasing Frankie, also HOT (pictured below). Chris has laid tracks at the club and regional level and of course, for his own dogs on the long but fulfilling road to Schutzhund 3.

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.

Joanne Fleming – Tracklayer


Hello Sportfriends;

I got in to our sport in 1981 with a 14 month old German Shepherd. A year and a half later I had taken him from no training to a 3. After this dog I got interested in Rottweilers and founded our DVG club, the Working Rottweiler Association of Canada. I have since then trained and competed with Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Bouviers, Dobermans and Malinois. I have competed in Europe, representing DVG America with a Bouvier, two German Shepherds and a Malinois. As for track laying I have laid tracks for the IFR, DVG and CWDF Championships.

Wishing all competitors good luck and a very enjoyable trial.
