Here is our current members, their dogs and a little about them..  We have a great club with great members and dogs.  We work as a team and have as much fun as possible doing it..  A sport is a tough go, and when you can have fun doing something like this that brings so much fulfillment, there is no better way to do it!!

    Hi, my name is Renee Lucescu and I've owned dogs my whole life. I started my business (Committed To Canine) in 1987 and have been training and breeding  for many years now.  I primarily dealt with Police and Military dogs for the first 15 years and started the sport of IPO back in 2000. At the present time, I really focus on my own dogs, competing, breeding, raising them and training new people with their dogs for various purposes....

  • Craig Wandtke- Helper, Director and Teaching Helper-Ontario Reg

    My name is Craig Wandtke and I have been involved with dogs my whole life. Growing up, my family owned Beagles.  Learning from my father about the hunting dog and how genetics played such a strong role for the urge to hunt,  It was and still is, amazing to watch dogs perform the tasks for which they were bred to do. In 1993, I became involved in the sport of Schutzhund and I haven't looked back since.   My trials successes wit...

    I am originally from southern Mississippi, but now reside in Connecticut.  I was first introduced to the sport by my father in 1991.  But it wasn't until 2003 when I became serious about helperwork and training in general.  My other passion besides helperwork is breeding, and with my girlfriend (Ivana) we have a working German Shepherd kennel named vom Rebel Yelle.  Over the past eight years, I have titled seven ...

    In 1980 Justin was my first GSD, the breeder introduced me to the local Schutzhund club "The Frontier Schutzhund Club" which was a NASA Club.  Over the next 15 years I became the Head Helper, helping in National, regional and WUSV qualifications trials while titling several dogs.

  • Frank Plesa

    Hi, My name is Frank Plesa and my love for animals, specifically dogs started at a very young age.  I was exposed to THE GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG as a toddler by my late father.  My father was very fond of the breed and our home was never without a German Shepherd Dog.  As a young man, I became intrigued by the Sieger Shows and later became very interested in the IPO sport.  Today, I find myself thoroughly enjoying both th...

  • Michelle Rill

    Hi, my name is Michelle Rill and I’ve loved dogs for as long as I can remember.  I was 13 when I was able to successfully convince my parents that our family needed a dog.  Since then, I’ve never been without at least one dog in my house. It wasn’t until 2014 when I met Renee and Craig that I was introduced to the sport of IPO.  I was in complete amazement of this sport and knew that I had to get involved.  I brough...

I look forward to what the club and Halle can teach me in the c...
