Help wanted in Alabama

I live in north Alabama and I would love to find another GSD owner that knows how to train a dog for schutzhund that could help me in training my 10 month old Kaid...I am completely new to this and I am training him to the best of my ability. Is there anyone near me that could offer my some help?

There are two that I know of in northern AL.
One in Birmingham, and one in Springville.
I've heard not-so-nice things about both... but have never personally been to either.

Edit: clubs that is... not sure if you're looking for private help, or to join a club?

That is not very close. I actually want someone in the Huntsville area, so we can meet regularly. Due to my circumstance, I need to find someone local to me, and Birmingham is not local and I have no idea where Springville is.

I was replying to the OP of this topic, but alright.

If you are in Huntsville, then maybe you should look for help in southern TN. Odds are you'll find more there than in AL.

Nearest person who will actually help you in Al. is in Gadsden. There is no one in Huntsville area. I would not recommend the other two mentioned. Springfield is about 15 miles east of B'ham.

Other choice is to look in Nashville/Murpheesboro area of Tn. That's it right now unless someone new has shown up. PM me if you want more info.

What is the problem with the clubs in the Birmingham area? I know one interfered with the other club during a Schutzhund trial. The other club member was driving his van all over the field so they couldn't start.
