B.A.C.K. 2018

Rieden/Kreuth, 05. - 07.01.2018

 

For a competition like B.A.C.K  a lot of judges are required.

We would like to thank you all for your time and effort as you will be contributing the main work for our competitors.

 

Our judges:

 

Uschi Hornung

My name is Uschi Hornung, I am 51 years old and live in Radolfzell at the beautiful Lake Constance.

I went to the dogs in 1993 with my wolfspitz bitch Gina. With her, I made my first experiences in dog sports and tried in the tournament dog sport

I discovered my passion for agility shortly after it was known in 1995 in the South West. With the successful completion of the trainers license, I am still working as a trainer for my club, Hundefreunde Singen.

My wolfspitz was not the typical sport dog; nevertheless, we managed to get into the A3 and even became regional champions in the DVG-Landesverband Baden-Württemberg. This was followed by my first Sheltie bitch Pat, who was very successful in the agility with Landesverband championships and by taking part in World Cup qualifications and a 3rd place in the DVG Bundessiergerprüfung. I'm currently competing with Sheltie Gin, who has also won several Landesverband titles and ran several times at the DVG Bundessiegerprüfung and German Championsships successfully.
Sheltie Benita is my hopeful offspring.

In 1999, I began my apprenticeship as an agility judge in the DVG, which I successfully completed in 2000. In 2005, I was admitted to the international list of judges.

Agility is a great sport that I like to do as a dog guide as well as a coach. As a judge, I am always fascinated by designing a course that is a challenge for dog handlers, but dogs can still run smoothly.

I am very pleased to be part of B.A.C.K. 2018!

As an animal masseuse it is very important to me that the dogs can run courses fluently. As a sportswoman I seek the technical challenge. As a judge I try to fit both of it so the teams can solve tricky courses and the dogs stay healthy.

I'm looking forward to an exciting competition in a genius venue.

Best regards, Sabrina Hauser

Marcel Schlühr

Hello, my name is Marcel Schlühr and I am 33 years old. Already twenty years ago I began with Agility and have remained faithful to this fascinating sport until now. 7 years ago, I successfully passed my exam to become an Agility judge. In 2015, I was also appointed to become an int. Agility judge. During my time as an Agility judge, I have already get the opportunity to participated at many great events, such as the DVG Bundessiegerprüfung, World-Cup qualification runs and the int. Sheltie competition. For me a good course includes a round running line for the dog and in the same time a technical challenge for the dog handler. I am really pleased to being part of the judging team at such a great event like the B.A.C.K.


 

Thomas Ebeling

It was in 2000 that I got to know agility through my sisters Labrador.

As from then it took hold of me and didn’t let me go again. On the one hand I married my sisters trainer and made here to my own trainer, and then again it is now my 4th and 5th dog competing in A3.

In 2012 I competed with my Border Collie bitch Wumm as part of the Team Germany Large1 at the European Open in Sweden where we could win the team competition large. With the German team small we managed exactly the same again at the World Cup 2013,taking part with my Sheltie bitch Gum.

As a judge I´ve had the honor to judge the German Championships 2014 and the European Open 2015.

 

Dieter Heinrich

The agility virus got me since 1998. I started with a German Shepherd and a Sheltie at the beginning.
In 2000 I’ve become a trainer and since 2009 I am a judge.
With my former and my current Belgian Shepherd I have participated in many competitions. Among these were club championships, German championships, EO and AWC qualifiers, the FMBB-WC and the EO.
I’m really looking forward to being at an amazing event like the B.A.C.K. as a judge und see the teams in this fascinating sport. I wish you all lots of fun and success!

 

Erika Szoboszlay

I have been competing since 1992 - at the beginning with German Shepherds, later with Border Collies.
I am a coach since 1995.
I established my own association and base in 2011.
I am an international judge since 2013.
My aim as a judge first of all is that the handlers and their dogs have fun during the course. I prefer to construct courses that are “dog-friendly”, smooth and dinamic, but still full of challenges. I like to see both handler and his/her dog leave with a smile on their face, but with their “tongues out” after a run.

It is an honor for me that I was asked to judge at such an important show, not just because as a competitor my very first competition in a foreign country was the first BACK-event, but also that I always thought of it as one of the most prestigious events during the winter season.

Dear Competitors! I wish you all a lot of fun!
