Hello, my name is John Bochenek. I am from Detroit, Michigan and have been active in the art of dog training since 2004. I am currently an active Teaching/Trial Helper, Training Director, Police K9 Trainer, and Competitor. As a Trial Helper, I was selected 21x in Championship Trials with 500+ dogs tested in trial. In 2012, I became a Teaching Helper with USCA and have since worked many Helper Seminars and Helper Selections. As a Training Director, I have lead the Metro Detroit SchH Club (MDSC) since 2006. Team MDSC has achieved 250+ titles to date and since 2008, our members have competed annually at Regional, National, and World Championship level competitions. Additionally, MDSC has hosted many trials and events including a Regional, a National, and a World Championship event. In my professional life, I work for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Detroit as a Biologist/Compliance Officer. Additionally, I am employed by several law enforcement offices within SE Michigan and SW Ontario as a K9 Consultant/Trainer and have been a professional K9 Trainer since 2010. As a Handler/Competitor, I am a 3x member of the SchH3 Club (H.O.T. from puppy) with 3 different breeds (GSD, Mal & AB). I presented my dog "Yahmo" (Malinois) at the Regional and National level with top-10 finishes and recently competed my dog Bono (GSD) at the Regional level and in 2018 won the USCA FH National Championship. I hope to compete with Bono further in tracking. Currently I am having fun training my puppy, Otter de Loucyn with hopes toward the future. Training dogs is my passion and has been for a very long time.
