Can Anyone Help?

I was wondering if there is anyone close to my area that has experience in Schutzhund training that would be willing to help me train my little guy?

I live in North Alabama and I would be able to travel short distances to meet. I have found the closest club near me but as I have been under some financial strain recently (do to a theft and slow work season) and Have not been able to pay the club fee to join yet hopefully I can do this in the upcoming month...but rent, power and the phone are more of a priority right now that the fee for my new hobby.

I am new to the sport and do not know much at all except what I have been able to research, and almost all of that is different in so degree...I want to find someone with experience that I can learn from.

Thank,
Brit

Have you asked if the club will allow you to pay in installments? They may be willing to let you do it. At least it's worth a shot.

Re: Can Anyone Help?

Hey Brit,
Hello from a neighbor, we're just east of Decatur.
The only training facility I've heard of near here is in Birmingham.
Someone told me about a place in Tanner, but I haven't been able to find any info about it. My Bear is still too young for that type of training, he's starting manners 101 in Huntsville in January, but I wouldn't mind getting him involved in that one day.

Maybe post what you've done with Kaid so far & be more specific about what you're looking for.

Re: Can Anyone Help?

I am working on drive and focus. He knows sit and down, I am starting to work a schutzhund heel. I do not know how or when to start his bite work or how to train the other obedience moves... mainly sit out of motion ect.

I want someone to guide me in my training of Kaid.

Re: Can Anyone Help?

For obedience, if you know what you're doing you may not need a club but... how old is this dog?

Re: Can Anyone Help?

Thanks lets see he will be 20 weeks on Thursday. I need help with drive building.
I have trained my other dogs but the were house dogs so nothing formal just good manners and very basic obedience and some tricks.
