Just started Schutzhund

So I found a trainer to start Schutzhund training so far it has been 2 weeks of training and wow what an approvement. I have had a hard time with distractions with him and getting him to focus on me instead of his surroundings. But he has improved since the first time we went out to the field. He is starting to hold the bite toy (not sure what to exactly call it) after he gets and he runs with it in his mouth now too. I have never done schutzhund before and this is my first GSD so it is all new to me but I'm having a blast with it and will continue it.

I agree, it's extremely addicting!!

Welcome to the forum and to Schutzhund! I know my male, Duke, has gained a lot from training! He's a completely different dog now! Glad you are having fun and enjoying it! It's a long road of training with many ups and downs, but definitely worth it!

Good luck with you pup and training!

Other side of the state- I am in Deland/Deltona- we train near Oviedo (trickyshepherd and I ) not with a club, just a trainer, but a darn good one

Oh opps I was thinking it was closer outside of tampa somewhere. Ahh ok I know Oviedo is. Yea I first went out to the club but someone there referred me to a private trainer out in New Port Richey and I am very pleased with him. She spoke very highly of him. I go out on Tuesday nights so that is now my favorite day of the week.

Sunday is our favorite day!

I enjoy being with a private trainer. Our group is very friendly and family like. I really enjoy it, we have a blast out there. Definitely plan on staying with them for as long as they are there!

Get out while you can! Its highly addictive, highly expensive, there aren't any effective ways to kick the habit that I know of, eats time up like you wouldn't believe, and you'll spend enough time behind the wheel transiting from place to place that you'll get a bit looney. It also has a negative effect on the social life. Last thursday I stopped training at 2:30AM. I had to work at 6AM. You also keep getting more dogs. Sooner or later I'll have to start a legal kennel or risk being labeled a hoarder
