2019 GSPCA election

South West Director: Dan Schoenfelder [email dan]

My name is Dan Schoenfelder and I am seeking the position of Southwest Director.  I and my wife of 35 years have had GSPs for the last 34 years.  I have worked in the restaurant industry all my life and currently am Director of Operations for a 20-location restaurant group.  Our first shorthair was Kip who was a wonderful dog we bought as a hunting companion and little did we know was an all-age dog.  He was a great introduction to the breed and got us hooked.  We have grown to have many more shorthairs and have competed in field trials, both AKC and NGSPA, hunt tests and conformation.  We have had the luck to have had Field Champions, American Field Champions, Conformation Champions and AKC hunt test titles.  I have held multiple officer positions in local GSP clubs.  I have also been involved in chairing Specialty Shows, Hunt Tests and Field Trials.  I have been a licensed judge for field trials and hunt tests for many years.

I would like to be on the board of the GSPCA to serve the membership and give back all that the breed has given me.  I will be an advocate for all the members.  The shorthair is a great versatile breed and we need to serve all the membership no matter what venue they compete in or just have a companion.   I would encourage all members to be involved in their local and national clubs and will be your voice.

Thank You for your consideration and electing me to the GSPCA board.
