More than 25 years experience in IPO – dog sports. More than 25 years of raising criteria in design/
performance and further development of the IPO dog sport. More than 25 years on winner‘s rostrums/
the podiums all over the world. Worldwide no other dog sport club has ever collected more titles. This
is what our name represents: Heuwinkl.
South of the Lake Starnberg in the upper bavarian municipality of Iffeldorf we work out new training
methods and bring them to perfection. Peter Scherk and Dr. Florian Knabl are pioneers and members/
initiators of the Heuwinkl-group. Behind these successful men is an exceptionally wise woman: Connie
Scherk, who adds heart and warmth to the precision and passion.
In their book Peter Scherk and Dr. Florian Knabl impart a detailed build-up of all IPO obedience exercises.
They show us the path from a puppy to the final result, through descriptions and pictures with step by
step instructions focusing on the keys needed for success: fun and excitement, motivation and fairness,
diligence and patience, precision, planning and control.
If you have no interest in dog sports, and only want to work on a reliable SIT or a fast DOWN, you will
equally benefit from the authors‘ experience, You will learn how you and your dog can be harmony and
be successful together. The reward is not a championship title, but a steadfast connection between dog
and human, enjoying the work together. Through this, you will develop a mutual trust and pride in your
joint success step by step.
