Mark Torrence

Director of Helpers

I was born and raised in Fort Washington, MD, in the Washington, D.C., area. I belong to the Commonwealth Working Dog Club, where I am the club training director and helper. I also serve as the current club President and helper for the Greater Washington DC Schutzhund Group.

In 2013, I worked at the GSDCA-WDA Nationals, where I was selected as a helper for tryouts for the 2013 WUSV WORLD Championship.

I was then selected to do the Front Half of the WUSV WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP for 2013. To date, this is my greatest accomplishment, as I also worked over 100 dogs with an excellent rating from the judge.

The following year, I was chosen to do helper work for the 2014 WUSV WORLD Qualifier and got the back half with an excellent rating.
I then did the back half at the 2016 GSDCA Nationals at Purina Farms and was selected for the front half at the 2016 WUSV World qualifier in Illinois. Later in 2016, I did the front half of DVG NATIONALS, all with excellent and consistent ratings.

In 2021 I worked the GSDC NATIONALS back half with over 30 dogs with an excellent rating from the judge.

I did the front half of the 2022 DVG Regionals with excellent ratings.

I take great pride in my helper work, ensuring I’m always in top shape, so I can always work dogs safely and to the best of my ability.
