Armin’s quest to acquire and share knowledge has led him to author many articles and lectures which have attracted attention world wide. Armin’s written works are in high demand.

Some of the articles were initially written for people in dog sports, but the information is equally valid for law enforcement and military K9 training. 

We are very pleased to make his materials available to visitors to Rivanna K9 Services.
