To be perfectly blunt, this means you're doing it wrong :-)

jocoyn I would think schutzhund folks would be very good. My own experience with a club was they wanted me to do the whole thing.

I will tell you that I met this woman (Nikki Ivey) at a search and rescue seminar (most of us have crazy high drive dogs) and I have watched her fix some amazing problems through motivational training. She is in your area and is very good.

We brought her in for a weekend and, actually, most of the team members want to bring her back. We had another drive to visit her several times and subsequently certified her very stubborn husky mix. We are in upstate SC so Nashville is quite the drive for troubleshooting.

MadLab You can develop the dogs skills with the ball yourself. You can tap into the dogs prey drive this way and then make it do what you want and satisfy its needs.

If i was you I'd read some books on Schutzhund and dog training in general.

IMO You shouldn't go to train your dog specifically in Schutzhund unless you know what you and the other trainers are doing. But still there should be general dog training courses where you can learn as well.

gagsd I am sure there are several, but I would recommend starting by contacting Sue and Gabor. Her username here I think is smithie86.
