Meet the judges
My name is Berry Kleinhesselink, born 08.02.1965, married and 2 kids, living in the east of Holland, near to the German Border.
I’m training dogs since 1992, and started three times at the FCI and FMBB. My favorite breed is the malinois, cause of his intelligence and powerfull work in obedience. But I also trained an German Shepherd succesfully.
I brought only 4 dogs to IPO 3, for the reason I don’t want to have more than 1 dog, and the dogs stay with me untill they die. Unfortunately 2 dogs died before the age of 2 years, so it takes a long time to come back on level.
I’m a judge since 2006, and I have been invited 5 times to judge world championships. I’m very honored to start for the second time at this world championship, judging part A. In my opinion the Dutch Shepherd made a big step forward in the last years. They also competed succesfully at the FCI, our highest level in dog sport.
I wish all the competitors all the best these days, let the best win, and don’t forget: our dog still remains our best friend, whatever the results are. Berry Kleinhesselink
I am Lars Czylwik and I was born in 1955. I live in the outskirts of Falkenberg in Sweden.
Dogs have always been a major part of my life. I began with IPO, not long after the sport was first introduced in Sweden, and have since had several dogs which I have trained and competed with, both nationally and internationally. The first Dutch Shepherd Dog to ever take part in a FCI-World Championship was actually my ”Oscar v.d. Vastenow”.
I have been an IPO-judge since 2002 and judged a large number of national- and international competitions, in Sweden as well as in other parts of the world. I feel very honored to once again be invited to judge a WDSF-World Championship, and wish all involved both enjoyment and success!
My name is Jos Beck, I was born in 1945 and I’m married.
Since 1975 I am active in dog sports as a dogleader, but also as a protective-service-assistant. With various German Shepherds I participated in Provincial- and Dutch championships.
As a protective-service-assistant, I have been able to work at many major events such as the Provincial championships and the Dutch individual championships. My passion is the German Shepherd dog, but I can enjoy all the good dogs of whatever breed they are. Since 1985, I am judge of the VDH and since 2008 I am a judge of the Dutch Kennel Club (FCI).
As a judge, I also had the pleasure judging on many major matches. Absolute highlight was judging division A during the WUSV championships in 1989 in Maribor. For you as a participant in this Dutch Shepherd’s World Championship, I hope that the many training hours you have spent with your buddy, can achieve the desired result.
With sports greetings and stay healthy,
