I posted this on another thread of yours but I'll post it here as well. Triple Crown dog academy in pflugerville/hutto. I *BELIEVE* it's the same establishment mentioned in this thread (Lonestar Schutzhund Club). As far as all the different things you want to do with your dog...based on what you want, sounds like IPO/SchZ type training is the best place to start obedience wise. I know next to nothing about show competitions and have no interest in it, but if you talk to the same guy I talked to at Triple Crown (PM me if you'd like more info on him) he will be able to answer your working-related questions (obedience,protection,etc), and will probably be able to refer you to someone who has more experience on the Showing side of things. Good luck

I believe the owner at Triple Crown is also the training director at Lone Star Schutzhund club that I mentioned.

I've called and emailed triple crown... it's a bit far,, but I can make it.... the lady I got Yoschi from said she can get me started with one on one basic obedience and tracking skills for $50 an hour...she said Yoschi's mom was IPO2 in Germany... I live on the far south side of Austin, so a club in hays county or san marcos area would be better,, not sure that exists though.. still waiting to hear back from triple crown and also the Austin Schutzhund club in pflugerville... neither have responded yet...

he is sv pink papered registered,, and I did file the paperwork with the AKC to register him... I guess my main reason for my question is wondering if show line dogs have the drive and physical requirements for working dog competition.

well,,, Yoschi has his evaluation with the schutzhund trainer, this coming Wednesday. I can't say I'm not nervous for some reason. I'm wondering how having him at home with my rambunctious 10yo son and wife, who don't seem too interested in following my advice about basic obedience stuff, will effect his focus during training. I'm wondering if he has the drive. Only thing that seems to get his attention and motivate him is wrestling with our schitzu and lhasa apso. They told me to bring his favorite toy...lol.. I said his favorite toys are our two little dog, he doesn't really play with anything else
