Need some advice.

Greetings Everyone,

I recently purchased my first GSP, she is 11 weeks old now. She comes from a German Bloodline and her parents were SchH1 and SchH2, which I honestly don't have any Idea want this means. I do want to get her involved in Schutzhund training though. I have purchased many of Leerburg video's and have been following his training.

I would like to know some more on how I should go about getting started with a club, what should I expect and average costs involved? Is it too late for my 11 week old GSP to get started in this?

Re: Need some advice.
This is a club listing link^^
I would watch the Leerburg vids with a cautious eye~ use your better judgement on what to take from it.
Not too late at all, and the sooner the better. Your pup is only 11 weeks after all. Clubs charge different prices and it would be best to inquire individually. My club is fairly new and there is a price to join, and then an annual fee($125). This is low, compared to most. We also will pay extra for the helpers and any other special events. It is a WDA affiliated club not USA.

Re: Need some advice.

It is not too late and I would visit every club you possibly can before deciding on one. There's much more to a club than its costs and even those are different club to club.
