My name is Esko Nykänen and I work as a dog handler in the Finnish Border Guard. I started working for the Finnish Border Guard in 1983 and recieved my first own border guard dog in 1995. At the moment part of my job includes close co-operation with police dog and border guard dog handlers of Eastern Finland.

Back in 1982 I performed my military service as a dog handler. I have also been in South-Lebanon and Beirut as a Finnish peacekeeper in the late 80's. During this period I came in close contact with protection work as I used a war dog in real situations.

I have been active in dogsports for the last 30 years and was qualified as a helper by SPL in 1998. During these years I have recieved lots of influence from Jari Vihersalo (kennel Russpelz) who acted as a helper for Russpelz Aleks and Russpelz Fhirra. Since 2000 I have trained 6 of my own dogs up to SchH3/IP3 and acted as a helper for 10 dogs participating to Finnish Masterships and WUSV qualifications.

My goal is to breed strong dogs with good prey drive and who are pleasant to work with in every aspect of protection work trials.
