Newbie suggestions pls :)

I am interested in Schutzhund, any suggestions to get started? What are the average fees for the clubs? Does anyone know of a good club near Baton Rouge, LA? I wouldn't mind traveling some if it works out
Thanks!!

On the USA site, there is only one club in LA:
Louisiana

Greater New Orleans SchH Association
David Billiot
Marrero, LA
504-348-9105

If you contact him, he may know of some who train in your area that aren't affiliated with USA, but still have a club or regular training.

Hard to say what average fees are - this varies greatly from club to club I guess. The club I train with has to rent a building inthe winter, the fees covers a seminar or two and maintaining equipment. Some clubs have much lower overhead costs.
Visit as many clubs in your area as possible. Ask a lot of questions.
Good luck

Update:
I got in touch with the club mentioned but unfortunately they meet on a week night. They are about 2 hrs away, which wouldn't be a big deal if it weren't a school night
Their fees are $200 is that about avg?
If anyone else knows of another club in the area please let me know!
Thanks again!!!!!

3 La clubs listed here:
South Central Region

You might also try USRC, DVG, AWMA clubs. (I checked UScA and WDA websites).

$200 yearly dues sounds fair.

Good luck! But beware- Schutzhund is very addictive. Sure you start training once a week and then two until you're a Schutzhund junkie. For which there is no cure. Oh and be prepared to have more than one dog!!!!!!!! Just make sure that you and your dog are having FUN!
