Our club is composed of members with extensive experience in Schutzhund and protection dog training.
From handlers who compete or have competed at high levels of competition in Germany and in the USA
to new handlers looking to title their first dog.
The Training in this Club is lead at the high standards and extensive experience by our two trainers from Germany, including our Training Director with over 30 years of experience.
Their training method is positive and based on positive reinforcement (fair and humane and reward-based treatment of the dog).
Handlers are encouraged to clearly instruct their dogs in the individual exercises and to quickly reward the desired behavior.
Our goal is to help you and your dog achieve the highest Level you are both capable of attaining and develop a working relationship in a positive manner.
We work hard to ensure our members achieve their titles and compete with their dogs to the best of their abilities.
As a Club we strive for function through Teamwork. As a member of that team, we expect you to lean through observation and participation.
