Nelli Racsko - USA




My name is Nelli Racsko. I started my dog sport career in Budapest, Hungary in 1984 and have been actively involved ever since. For the last 20 years I have trained in Los Angeles, California (USA).


For as long as I remember, I have been a great fan of German Shepherds and started training them at the age of 11 years. Since that I have raised, trained, titled and bred numerous dogs and have competed on national as well as international level with four of them. I am very proud of being able to represent my native land (Hungary) at 5 WUSV World Championships with two different dogs.


Currently, I own and manage Los Angeles K-9 Services and Danubius Kennels – a dog training business with a small breeding kennel in Southern California. I am also the founder and training director of a young but very promising working dog club called Danubius Schutzhund Club.


There have been a number of well recognized trainers who have tremendously influenced my journey with my selected dogs, three in particular - Dean Calderon of USA, Roger Snollaerts of Belgium and Voros Lajos of Hungary – thank you for helping me better understand the different aspects of this unique sport. Thanks to my family and the members of Danubius Schutzhund Club, too, for their continuous and unconditional support.


I am very excited to be included in the 2011 Masters World Dog Sport Tournament which I believe will be a great showcase for some of the most talented and accomplished Schutzhund trainers, handlers, judges and helpers from worldwide.
