Tracking Coordinator: Kris Taylor

 I would like to thank the AWDF and Hells Kitchen Schutzhund Club for selecting me to serve this organization as the tracking coordinator for the 2018 AWDF Championships. This will be my second year in a row that I’ve been given the opportunity to serve this organization as the tracking coordinator for this championship event. I am greatly honored for both opportunities. I have also served USCA as a tracklayer for the 2014 and 2015 GSD National Championships and as tracking coordinator for the WDC in 2016 and the GSD Nationals in 2016. I have also served the AWMA in 2015 as a tracklayer and the tracking coordinator at the AWMA Malinois Nationals. As a handler I’ve competed in 4 Regional Championships, 3 National Championships, 1 Working Dog Championships, 1 WUSV Universal Qualifier and 1 WUSV Universal Championship along with several club level trials from BH’s and AD’s to IPO/SchH 1-3, FH and FH2. I have also attended as a handler, and owner/breeder at several club and regional conformation shows as well as at 2 USCA Sieger Shows, 1 USCA Universal Sieger Show and the 2012 WUSV Universal Sieger in Slovenia. As a trial helper, I am a USCA National level helper and a teaching helper. I’ve worked 5 Southwest regional championships and the 2015 Malinois Nationals along with many club level trials. I am the primary training helper and Vice President for Aztec Schutzhund Club in Ramona, CA. I am also a proud breeder of Working Line German Shepherds under the registered kennel name of “von Taylorhof”.

Tracklayers for the event will be announced soon!
