I have been training dogs since the early 90’s. For me dog training is a passion I really enjoy. I have trained dogs in my group in all IGP disciplines regularly since the 90’s, and my trainees have been on podium in Estonian Championships every year since 2007. In 2022 I had 4 dogs among best 6. During all these years I have trained more than 100 dogs to different results.
Personally I have competed in World Championships 9 times with different dogs (2 times in FCI IPO, 1 time in FCI IPO-FH, 3 times in FMBB IPO and 3 times in IDC IPO). Best place in IDC IPO WC, 10th place (Apolda, 2009). I have achieved several podium places at Estonian Championshisps with different dogs in IPO and also in IPO-FH.
