greetings

My name is Doug Humphrey I have a dog (Mal) I am preparing for Schutzhund Competition I am at a point where I need access to blinds etc. No way I can buy a set by myself right now... I have over 20 years experience training dogs for police service, including police competition. I am a former long time member of MASS/CONN police K9 and Schuthund club. If people want to train lets get together and train. I may also have access to an indoor training venue but it will be un here in North Central Connecticut. I realize most of you want to do Fairfield cty but maybe we can find something centrally located. Let me know if there is still interest in this thread. I have no problem helping people with training so let me know. One other thought establishing a club is great but also alot of work. For now we may be better served by just establishing a "training group". Just a thought.

Hi, not sure if anyone is interested in the schutzhund club in CT, but I know Ocean State Schutzhund Club is in Oxford CT. Run by a national competitor, could be a good club to join. I'm not speaking from experience, as I do not belong to the club but just figured I'd throw it out there - less hassle than starting your own club and you get the advantage of working with some very experienced people... Hope this helps anyone...

HI Doug...the OP of this thread sent out emails about 2 weeks ago saying he was going to try to get a meeting together after Jan 1 for anyone who was interested in making a training group/club etc. I replied to the email saying I was DEF interested as I have 4 dogs that I would love to get the training and experience in. However I have no experience in SCH work..other than just some basic commands I learned from a few K9 coworkers. I am def up for travelling somewhere around CT to get my guys going. Not necessarily for competitions but just for fun and to get my guys better trained/better listening.

I tried contacting the club in Oxford, CT by phone and email and never got any responses.

Did we get a tenative meeting date and location as to people interested to talk over starting this training group? I know sometime after the 1st of the year is best for me and my husband...but I'll prob end up only a spectator towards the end of Jan..(my due date for our 1st is 1/29/13)... But I'd like to start planning dates/times of possible training or at least a meeting to see who is interested.

Doug, any luck in starting a "training club" yet? I'd be very interested. I live in Fairfield County and have a 10 month old GSD.

I do not have a GSD anymore but I have a Dobe I have been doing on my own. I have been trying for two years to get into the clubs in CT but they are not "noob" friendly. How do you learn if you can't break in. I want a dog that can protect me since we were burglarized twice and I have two small children. I can't afford a trained dog so I thought this would suffice. Can you keep me posted PLEASE?
