I began at the age of eleven in 1990 with long hair collies and a border collie in the sport of Searching and IPO obedience. We were breed champions three times and obedience champions twice. Following these early championships, I have competed many more times with German Shepherds, Malinois and a Rottweiler.

More than 20 dogs in World Championships and more than 30 dogs in National level (German Shepherds, Malinois, Boxers, Dobermans....)
I have been the helper for many dogs from different countries in WUSV, FMBB and FCI making me one of the most experienced and successful helpers/decoy in the World.
I have been the training helper for many dogs who have had excellent results in the World Championships including German Shepherds, Malinois and Boxers.
I have coached and helped many handlers to achieve excellent results in National Championships and World Championships. My previous Team Bite Club won GSD Championships, Malinois Championships, FCI Qualifications and Finnish all breed Championships many times in Finland. Team Bite Club has also won two World Championship titles, 7 podium scores and many scores in the top of twenty in the last 10 years. One of the most successful teams in the world.
I have helped many handlers from other countries to achieve high level results in their own National competitions and in the World Championships. For example, people who have trained with me have had excellent points in Obedience and Tracking at the World Championships.
In the Finnish helper school I have been the instructor for several helpers and I have had three students who personally trained under me as an educating helper in Finland; Tuukka Nikola, Hannu Liljegren, Timo Karjalainen and Kelly Readman, Canada. These men have all trained other handler's dogs to a Championship level. As well, two of these men have also competed themselves in World Championships.
