A LETTER FROM THE REAL TIMOTHY J. HELSER 5/25/2012

|A LETTER FROM TIMOTHY J. HELSER 5/25/2012|
To all whom it may concern,
I have not posted on this web site for a few years now, and by not doing so I have taken the high road. I know that it may seem that I have been hiding all of these years, but I have nothing to hide. I have tried to keep out of the gossip circle and not post on here. However, I now feel that it is time I speak out about all the gossip on this site! All of these posts on here are lies from people who I refused to work with.
I am not a scam artist or a fraud. I have titled and trained dogs in numerous sports over the years, at numerous clubs across the country and in Europe. I have helped, trained, sold to and worked with many people over the years from the average pet owner, newbie, club member, regional and national level competitors, police k-9 departments, military, SAR, and celebrities in California, New York and around the country.
I have never stolen a dog from anyone! I have never committed fraud. I have never had an unsportsmanlike conduct or was dismissed from any trial. I have never had a Board of Inquiry through USCA or any other dog organization. I have never sold an unhealthy dog or puppy. I have never had a complaint from a buyer.
I have never been convicted of dog or animal abuse, having dangerous dogs or any other charges other than a few minor dog tag violations. There have never been sick, abused, neglected or dead dogs found on my premises and under my care. I have also never been convicted of impersonating a police officer. Being charged with a crime does not make you guilty. All of those charges were dismissed by the court, and I have written proof that they all were DISMISSED. I am not trying to imply that I am perfect by any means. We all have made decisions in our past that have affected our lives, whether they were good or bad. But I refuse to let those decisions define who I am today, because they have only made me a better person!
If anyone out there feels that I have done them wrong, I deeply and sincerely apologize. I would like to extend the offer to contact me so that I have a chance to make amends for any wrong doing that I may have caused.
My home, dogs and club are always open and available to anyone in the world who may be concerned for the health and wellbeing of my dogs including any members of any dog organization.
My dogs have always been in top healthy condition. They have always been under regular veterinarian care and are feed premium dog food. Their home environment has and is in great condition. I maintain a loving, caring, working relationship with each and every dog.
Over the years I have taken in many rescues and have provided them with training, veterinarian care, and have placed them in appropriate homes for their temperament, and the needs and wants of the new owner at my own expense. Some of these rescue dogs were found in the pound, on craigslist.com, petfinder.com, or from people who personally know me. Some of these dogs have been from top working breeders who compete at a world level. These breeders have placed their dogs in the wrong hands of people who did not understand genetics of a working dog. I care about all working breeds, the German Shepherd especially, and it sickens me to see so-called top breeders and trainers treating them as a disposable income. These people are nationally and world known. I have also worked with many people over the years who have gone to those top breeders and trainers for training. Those same breeders and trainers refused to work with them. Not because the owner was a bad person but because the dog wasn’t “good enough” for the trainer’s limited training knowledge. Those same owners and their dogs are currently in my club, and are obtaining titles as we speak under my training direction.
There have been numerous death threats over the years made towards me from a select few individuals. My children have been criticized. Everyone in this world is a human being and should be treated with dignity and respect. My children have nothing to do with my business practices.
I have always been involved with dogs my entire life, including pet dogs and working lines. My family has a long history that dates back to 1921 that involves working lines and Schutzhund. No one can discredit my training, my dogs, or any accomplishments that I have ever had. I have seen many people come and go over the years, but one thing remains…ME & MY DOGS! I have always owned working dogs and will always continue to own working dogs. All of your gossip and nonsense over the years has not detoured me, restricted me or inhibited me in any way from training, breeding, rescuing, importing, selling, donating, competing, titling, doing search & rescue and running my own club. Nor will it ever due so. I will continue to support all dogs, from pets to the working lines regardless of venue. I will continue to compete with my dogs. I will continue to go to all of the club & national events I can make it to. I will continue to support those people and their dogs with my money, time, training and friendship.
Again, if anyone out there feels that I have done them wrong, I deeply and sincerely apologize. I would like to extend the offer to contact me so that I have a chance to make amends for any wrong doing that I may have caused.
My home, dogs and club are always open and available to anyone in the world who may be concerned for the health and wellbeing of my dogs including any other members of any dog organization.
Once again, I do not have anything to hide. Furthermore, I, Timothy J. Helser will not engage in a debate with you in regards to this post. If you would like to discuss this with me, feel free to contact me either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org by phone at (937) 471-8176 anytime, day or night.
I welcome any and all to view the following links that show my home, family, dogs, training, and club members. The following are direct links to all of my Facebook photo albums (you do not have to have Facebook to view them) and YouTube videos.
Thank you for your kind attention herein.

|So...are you claiming someone else has been impersonating you over the past few years?|
[Edited to add: I ask this because the spelling, grammar, word usage, and writing style of this post are so diametrically opposed to that seen in past posts attributed to you as to cause the reader to wonder what change had been wrought to produce such eloquence...]

|This reminds of something..... I think it was the word "herein", that did it....|

We have a few members here who can tell a different story completely.
That was then , this is NOW>.
Hope you have changed your life as I was here for alll the months of DRAMA we went thru on here.

|Will the real Timothy J. Hesler please stand up?|
by Blitzen on 25 May 2012 - 23:46
Who cares anyway?
by GSD Admin on 26 May 2012 - 00:06
|I do, for many many many reasons. Number 1 being innocent people, number 2 innocent dogs. Now I must exit stage left.|
by Blitzen on 26 May 2012 - 00:59
|Allow me to rephrase my statement - who cares what Tim Helser has to say about anything?|
by yellowrose of Texas on 26 May 2012 - 02:33
| You have a point Blitzen, no one on here would ever reccommend him for anything..|
THIS IS why we teach our children, what you do and who you associate is your LIFELINE>
YOU are known by your deeds and you are known by the acts you do and the words coming out of your mouth..
It is like the Two edged sword spoken about in the GREAT BOOK....
IT CUTS both ways.
by GSD Admin on 26 May 2012 - 03:02
|Funny people keep getting burned so those words mean something to newbies and inexperienced folks so I will stick to my above comment. We should all care, about what he says because it translates into more victims.|
by 4pack on 26 May 2012 - 04:15
|Wow! That's all I'm gonna say.|
by EuroShepherd on 26 May 2012 - 05:36
Where's Bob? can't wait to see the responses of all the other people who helser has screwed over.
"All of these posts on here are lies from people who I refused to work with."
Ha, what a joke, the honest thing to say would've been "all of these posts on here are from people who I scammed in the past and now they refuse to work with me"
Never will we let it rest, you did too many bad things to too many people and too many dogs.
The only reason why you weren't convicted of multiple counts of animal cruelty (what was it, 11? 12? I believe one of them was for a dead puppy) is because the officer who made the charges wasn't able to make it to a court date. You've still been convicted of plenty other things. Your name is well known to your previous local police department and they don't say pretty things about you. Or was that your previous local police department? You moved because you got tired of seeing the same cops too often?
There is not a single claim in your post about yourself that I believe or agree with.
lol Hexe, I noticed how his grammar and spelling have suddenly improved too, maybe he finally got his GED? No, can't be...he had someone ghost write for him, too bad they didn't get paid.
If you're serious about turning over a new leaf, then you should publicly address every single grievance anyone has had against you in the canine world, admit to each wrong you've made. For those people whom you've stolen dogs from, tell them the truth about what happened to their dogs and get out of the canine and animal business altogether, permanently.
Hey admin, can you talk to Oli about adding a Wall Of Shame here?

|Is Helser banned from posting here?|
by Stumpywop on 26 May 2012 - 15:25
|I wasn't a part of what went on with Timothy Helser but I would suggest also eitehr banning or moving/removing such posts from people who do this sort of thing to people, customers, animals, dogs etc.|
The reason being, if I were completely new to dogs in general, GSDs specifically adn didn't know any better, I might actually believe him if I hadn't spoken to anyone else before or done enough research to find out what he did wrong.
He states that being charged with somethign doesn't make him guilty. I know US law is very similar to UK law and here, in much the same way, having charges dismissed at Court or being acquitted of somethign doesn't mean you're innocent either. As a rule, if you end up as far intot eh criminal justice system as going to Court, then the evidence is there to take the prosecution forward and the case may fail on a technicality. NOT because someone was innocent of everything they were accused of.
As I said before, I wasn't involved in what went on with Timothy Helser. But from what I've read, I'm pleased teh majority of the Atlantic Ocean is between us.

|I see what you're saying, but I disagree. I'm new here and if I didn't read all of this, I'd have had no idea that this was a person to stay away from. I'm glad I now do, even though I'm up in Canada.|
Normally I'd take something like this with a grain of salt, but this person has a record of run-ins with the law a mile long!
It's hard to believe people like that are still walking around, hurting people and their beloved pets. Just terrible. This is one person he won't ensnare, thanks to this thread and the other! :)

|I honestly dont believe this is a letter from Timothy. It is way to articulate. Although he may have had someone write it for him. On the flip side if this is indeed a letter from him , it just shows how deep his sickness is. If he truely believes he is a victim and is innocent of his crimes. He is a sick sick person to publish a letter such as this. The guy need serious mental help. Timothy I hope you get the help you need.|
by GSD Admin on 26 May 2012 - 16:08
|I am going to say 3 things here and hopefully be done with this thread.|
1. It is no members business who is banned and who isn't banned.
2. I would not be wasting my time on this thread if I believed it to not be.
3. If someone can show me a conviction for dog abuse, the convicted abusing member will be immediately banned.

|Strange.. I was approached by this guy.. I was in Ky/Oh area with family.. and went to a local show/trial to see 'what was up'.. he had said he would take a dog and title it.. but that his name had to be added on to the registration as a co-owner in order to show him.. hmmmm.. glad I had my K-9 radar on.. what a up front personality and ya know.. I almost belived what he was telling people.. this story scared the crap out of me.. as well as reading all of the rip off reports and felonies in Montgomery county court records.. I was heartbroken when I read about all of the dead and starved dogs in his care !! Maybe he should have kept his mouth shut on here.. because now everyone that cares about what the admins and 'ole timers' have to say! I would have been clueless on him.. other than I would have never put my dog in someone elses name.. ever !! Glad you all have comments to help the new ones stay on track and do our homework and check out trainers before a nightmare occurs..! Thanks guys.. keep up the good work.. how stupid some people can make us feel.. and I hate being blindsided ! Sherry|

| HI Miss BUMP"|
Swingfield...hogwash flies here all the time..no ONE EVER NEEDS A NAME ON YOUR registration to trial and title a dog..
YOU do not even have to have a registered dog to title. it...How funny>...Dog is considered a MIXED breed no matter what it is,,, Steve Leigh put Schutzhund titles on his prized adopted german shepherd,
Barkasse der Hanswurst ( SchH 11,VB, WH )had no Ahnentafel.
He came into our lives April of 1981, from a dog pound in southern California.
His paperwork consisted of a receipt for $25.60, and a rabies tag.copied from his website , www.sl-prokeys.com and by his testimony.
