By the training with "Rambo" he became acquainted with Edgar Scherkl, and strengthened by those won new realizations he developed to a good helper, and became an in demand helper for "cases of problem", particularly with older dogs.
It followed the employment for government-, state- and federation championships, where the handlers took back their dogs, when they heard that Armin was the helper. Fact however was that dogs interspersed themselves with him, with all other helpers had no problems and showed good work.
In 1994 Armin was asked if he's fancy to do the protection work on the DMC-Championat as helper. Of course he had. This event, which was to be seen more and more in the last years always, he wanted to feel on the tooth. Heiner Bruns , the breeder of the kennel "... von der Wautz" possessed 1985 or ' 86 first of these dogs in our area. 1989 Armin met Volker Riedel and his "Kolos des Deux Pottois" at the dHV Nationals. Later they emerged by Edgar in Repelen and then everywhere. At first they were still hated as "mode feature", "straw fires", etc., then as "mark foxes", "yellow potatoe stable", etc. Honestly Armin don't liked them too. They couldn't afford much sympathy from him. But with the DMC-Championat in 1994 he got a completely new aspect over this dog race.
