Steve Locher and Loki IGP3 FH1
Most of my life as a child and an adult I've had pet German shepherds. When I settled in to Arkansas over 7 years ago I was fortunate enough to find Mike Yarnell and the Arkansas Schutzhund Club. With the help of many people I was able to title my first working German Shepherd to a IPO 3 and FH title. With their continued support I'm excited to soon start the journey with a new pup.

I imported a male GSD pup from Czech as a protection dog for my wife. I had titled several Labs in retriever trials but never done any kind of bite work and knew I needed direction. I had no idea what "Schutzhund" was when I contacted The Arkansas Schutzhund club. I just wanted guidance. Eleven years and several titles later I have not only found guidance but friends and family who go far beyond training.
Monique Misfeldt and Ziva BH
Growing up I very involved in horses and showing up until the point I left for vet school. While in school I didn’t have access to horses and couldn’t bring mine with me so I began to fill that void with dogs. I adopted a stray puppy and was determined to make it the most well trained dog I ever owned and that she was. After a few years of training that dog I discovered the world of bite sports and was intrigued by the working breeds. I then got my first bite sport prospect Ziva, a dutch shepherd. Since then I’ve added a belgian malinois, Zilla, and a german shepherd, Mayhem, to the pack.
Lori Lambert and Vlippi, Axel and Abbi
I'm a retired USAF veteran and recently moved to Arkansas and am finally close enough to train with the Arkansas Schutzhund Club! I'm an experienced GSD owner but am new to IGP and have not had formal training in obedience or any other discipline. My goals with my dogs Vlippi, Axel and Abbi are to focus on obedience and tracking and to learn how to consistently and clearly communicate with my dogs while having fun and bonding.
