Jogi Zank (SV)

SV German Champion, WUSV Vice World Champion, SV LGA Winner

Dogsport is Team Sport. Jogi uses the same slogan that we use. One reason that we invited him to our camp. But of course more importantly, Jogi is one of the most renowned and successful trainers and dog handlers in the SV (and world). Jogi has been doing a lot for youth in dogsport and we are thrilled to have him. We hope you are too :-)!

Peter Scherk (DMC)

3 times world champion, 2 x German Champion German Malinois Club

Dogsport has been his passion for many decades. At the age of 14 he got his first dog - a boxer male "Dino" and since then he has dedicated himself to IGP dogsport and runs it at the highest level, both as an active dog handler and as a trainer (of different breeds).

A heart of his philosophy is to combine the exercise itself with many positive emotions and thus develop a passion for learning and the task itself in the dog. This certainly shaped the Heuwinkl team.

Connie Scherk (DMC)

German Vice-Champion DMC, 3rd place VDH Championship

The fascination of IGP dogsport caught Connie in her teens together with her mixed breed dog "Wolfi" and never let go (several decades 😉)

She is happy to pass on her many years of experience and above all her enthusiasm for the IPG sport to others!

Bernd Föry (DMC & swhv)

Bei Bernd schlägt “jeder” irgendwann mal auf, wenn es auf der Fährte nicht recht klappen will.  Dabei fand Bernd, der schon seit 40 Jahren Hundesport betreibt, das Fährten selber erst spannend als er gemerkt hat, “was ein Hund so alles mit der Nase riechen kann”. Bernd nimmt Euch zusammen mit Erwin Rinner in kleinen Gruppen mit auf die Fährte und kann Euch alle Fragen im Zusammenhang mit Sucharbeit beantworten.
