|David Winners||I will start up Nosework and OB training classes as soon as I get settled in, but I'm not equipped or experienced enough to do an IPO club. I plan on checking out Bill Jenkins in Texoma and Khoi Pham in Dallas when I can.|

|onyx'girl||Not much in OK either? So many area's are 'dry' when it comes to good training.|

If I were going to be around I would be up in Michigan for sure. Indy is about 2.5 hours from me. I'm in Bryan, which is about 30 minutes NW of Defiance.
Nothing there at all.

|lhczth||I know David. That is why I told him to look in MI and IN too. Our club is about 45 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on where in NW Ohio. There is one closer up 127 and another just east of 23. Heck the Indy clubs may be a better option.|

The OH working dog facebook page I linked early in this thread may be of help. They can steer the OP away from certain individuals and suggest some good ones to train with.

OP here is a question for you.
Does your state require or have security services regulations in the use of a k9 and handler ?
The dog may be intended for use in your Dad's business but the attitude has to be professional . You have to protect yourself and your Dad's business from liability , especially in a litigious society.
General security work is patrol .
BALANCE --- sound temperament , no environmental issues not to sound or surface . You want to have these qualities present naturally , not through training , or conditioning or desensitizing.
Some dogs that you see at club level schutzhund clubs might fit the bill. Many would not . Depends on the area , depends on the club .
Some are more competitive and polished , better decoys , attract better participants . Some are a bit on the rag-tag and are for fun (no problem with that) and the sociability of the get-togethers after and the refreshments and discussions after.
here is another person / breeder that I recommend and admire , with decades of experience and results , Julia Priest von Sontausen German Shepherd Dogs
