Find a club and get him evaluated. Both mine started younger than 7 months.

I agree, it's never too early too start..we've been going to puppy schutzhund classes since she was 4 months old.

I would go to a club, but not worry right now about the 'protection' side of it. Tracking, obedience and the other exercises involved in obedience can be started young. You can work on the flirtpole or pillow to encourage strong deep grips and build a solid foundation before putting any pressure on your dog. If the training is right, there should be nothing that would harm your dog doing protection work.

Is your dog from imported lines or from traditional Alsation or united Kingdom lines. The reason I ask is that the genetic strength of the dogs native to United Kingdom in past 40 years has not been known for doing protection work. You may have a dog from imported lines, or you may have the exception, but it is also possible that the protection strength is not strong in your dod or the lines of your dog. This has happened in other places as well. Good Luck!

These lines have the genetics to do protection work, really depends on the individual dog.
