Who We Are?

Patrick Lockett

Breeder, Trainer

Patrick Lockett has been in the German shepherd community for over 25 years. Johann “Hans” Eiban, Patrick’s grandfather, started breeding German shepherds in 1969 under the kennel name, vom Krumbachertal, out of Amberg, Germany. Hans was a well-respected breeder, judge and the vice president in the Amberg community for years. Growing up in Europe allowed Patrick to surround himself with an abundance of knowledge about the dog training community. Patrick’s love for the breed and for the sport of Schutzhund/ IGP continued throughout his development into the well-rounded trainer he is today.

His discipline for dog training has grown over the course of his studies as he has been mentored and coached by the best in the industry. In 2019, Patrick retired from his 20 year career as a Military service as a Reconnaissance and Security specialist to dedicate his time to his true passion, breeding and training.Patrick’s expertise expanded once he discovered the world of modern dog training and NePoPo® system created by the grandfather of dog training, Bart Bellon. NePoPo® is a training system where the behaviour of the dog is performed  with heart and soul. NePoPo® is a negative – positive – positive training system. He has since become a NePoPo® Gold Premium Graduate of Bart Bellon, one of ten in the world.

In the past decade, Patrick has refined his love of dogs by exploring both sides as a German certified helper and IGP competitor in Germany. He has advanced his experience as a helper and handler by participating in numerous trials throughout Germany.

Patrick has recently been selected by the International Association of Canine Professionals to serve as the chairman of the Legislative Committee.He currently lives in Germany with his wife, Alishia, where they have a family-owned kennel and training program that caters to families, K9 Units, Sport, and personal protection to name a few.  He also holds private training, as well as group classes for those interested in obedience, tracking or protection work.

Patrick has been awarded the 2022 IACP Member of the Year award.
