Bob Janek

Classes: Beginner/Novice Obedience, Open, Masters Obedience

Bob Janek has been attending Dog Shows for as long as he can remember. As a young boy and the Eldest Son of the Legendary Velma Janek, he traveled to many different Venues from Chicago to St. Louis, Detroit to Wheeling and east to Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. He also had the privilege of Meeting and Getting to know some of the Great Obedience Judges of that time.

After a five year stint in the Navy, Bob returned home to Muncie, IN where it was only natural that he would acquire a Doberman from his Mother’s successful Val-Jan Kennels. “Jezabel”, Val-Jan Jezabel Of Finesse, would be the beginning of Bob’s Life-Long Love of the Sport of Competitive Obedience. She completed her UD in February 1974 and consistently ranked among the top Dobermans during her career.

He has trained and titled Belgian Tervuren, Australian Shepherds, Belgian Malinois and most recently Border Collies. He owned and trained one of the first Belgian Tervuren OTCHs and his beloved Warchex Madison UDX was #1 Belgian Malinois in Obedience for 1999.

Through the years, Bob has served as the Trainer for the K-9 Division of the Anderson, IN Police Department as well as a 4-H Leader for Randolph County, IN, in the Dog Obedience Program. He has been an AKC Obedience Judge since 1979.

Although Bob’s main focus is Obedience, he does venture into the Conformation Ring long enough to complete AKC Championships, always Owner Handled. His first Border Collie, Multiple HIT, Multiple High Combined OTCH Ch. Wildfire Yessiree Bob, UDX3, OM8 (“Sir”) was a 2009 and 2010 National Obedience Invitational invitee. His current Competition Dogs include Multiple HIT MHC Ch. Wildfire Sincerely Yours, UD, OM1 (“Diva”) who is working towards her OTCH and three of her Pups from a 2014 litter.

In 1999, while Judging an Obedience Trial in Niagara Falls, NY, Bob met his wife Kim, a Borzoi Breeder and Dog Show Enthusiast. They married in 2000 and maintain a Hobby Kennel which seven Borzoi and six Border Collies call Home.
