Sieger Show Helpers

Rory Kennedy

RBKnationals2014"I am honored to have been selected as a helper for the 2017 GSDCA National IPO-FH Championship. Having grown up in a family deeply entrenched in the training and breeding of the German Shepherd Dog, I have been involved in helper work since the age of 9. I am currently the President and Training Director of Wesconn Schaeferhund Verein. Among many club and regional level trials and breed surveys, I have also been chosen to work numerous national level events, which are as follows:

Front Half NASS 2013
Front Half GSDCA-WDA National IPO Championship 2014
Front/Back Half NASS 2014
Front Half Helper GSDCA National IPO Championship 2016

I would like to thank T Floyd and Dean Calderon for their early influence, as well as my grandfather John Mathias Henkel. I would like to especially thank my uncle John Henkel, for his wealth of knowledge and continued coaching. I also send special appreciation to Steve House, Phil Hoelcher, Carl Smith, and Helmut Huber for their guidance. I thank the board members for their consideration of me for this event, and I wish all the competitors the best of luck!"

He truly has the passion and determination to better the sport.  A few other mentors who have guided me along the way, and have took the time to help me include: Phil Hoesler, Carl Smith, Wallace Payne, Mike Karlov, and my good friends Rory Kennedy and Leesa Foster.
