Talking My boy Jäger and I start Schutzhund training next week!!! Houston, TX.

Ok, so great news. I found Shutzhund club not too far away and its not too expensive. $100 a month with access to the whole facilty and trainers. A one acre training field with lights, blinds, etc, and a certified decoy (helper) for bite work.

I am so amped I can't contain myself. I had been searching and searching and the closest thing I had found was that place in Vidor, TX.

Can't wait till next week. I am sure Jäger is going to do great. Updates and pics to follow.

Probably the same one. They are located in Magnolia. The place is called Renaissance Kennels and the trainer is Rod Dean.

I've been doing a ton of research and talking to a ton of people. I know it is going to take a huge commitement on my part. I feel pretty confident as long as the club is accepting of a "noob".

We'll see how it goes. Going out on Tuesday to check things out.

I'm still on the waiting list Cayla. I'm really have puppy fever now that I get the pupdates from them every week.

Yeah we have a ton of fun on Saturdays It's a bigger group that day, with some of the more advanced dogs and it's so cool to watch them work.

I bet it is. I just want my boy to have fun and do what he was bred to do. I'm just as excited to learn new training techniques that apply more toward a GSD. I have done rescue, fostered, and owned dogs before and have always done my own obedience. All my dogs have been well mannered.

Needless to say, a GSD is a whole different ballgame. Granted, we have some of the basics down, but I can see and feel where I am falling short. I want to get some guidance before he starts developing some bad habbits. What better way to do this then to dive right in.

Really looking forward to learning new stuff and seeing just what my boy is capable of.

Of course I say Schutzhund, but whatever he excels at is the way we will go. If PSA better suits him then I'm game. Whatever makes him happy.
