UWE WEHNER

My active time in dog sports began many years ago with Old English Sheepdogs and the German dog sport “Turnierhundsport”. In 1989, I had my first contact with the Obedience sport in Holland and was immediately enthusiastic about it. Since Obedience was almost unknown in Germany at that time, I competed with my training group in Switzerland. In order to train purposefully, I created regulations for my association, which served as the basis for the first official German rules. Through my commitment to this sport, I am in charge for Obedience in one of the German dog sport associations (DVG) since 2000.
Obedience developed excellently in Germany. With the help of Holland, the first Obedience judges were trained, to which I belonged.
In addition to the captivation for the Obedience sport itself, from the very beginning, I have been fascinated by the various training methods based on motivation and positive reinforcement. To learn more about the different methods, I have organized numerous seminars with well-known obedience trainers.
In the meantime, I judge and give a lot of seminars for handlers, judges, trainers and stewards at home and abroad. I also competed with two dogs in the highest performance class.

  • Chairman for Obedience within the DVG since 2002
  • Team leader of the German Obedience national team from 2002 to 2015
