My name is Timo Rieg and I was born in Mutlangen, Germany. It was not until I moved to the USA that I started training our own shepherd and got introduced to helper work. I have been fortunate to be mentored by several people in the sport, including but not limited to Phil Hoelcher, Leon Luszcz and Steve House. I keep myself in shape by playing ice hockey twice a week. Since we moved to Florida in February 2017, I have been training with Phil Hoelcher at Highway Schutzhund Club. When I am not doing helper work, I enjoy training my own dogs: Aria (current), Xenia (IPO1, KKL lifetime), and Pontos (BH).
