I'm curious....

Approximately what percentage of folks who compete in schutzhund take a raw untrained pup and raise it up then title it....

What percentage of those do it alone...
What percentage hire a trainer?
what percentage send their dog somewhere to be trained?
Or what percentage buy titled dogs and go from there?

Where do you fit those that train with a club? I trained Nikon 7 weeks to present and he has a SchH title and breed survey among other things. I also trained Pan 7 weeks to 2 years and did everything for his breed survey except the SchH title (BH, AD, SG rating, hip/elbow certs). I did none of the above, I trained with clubs.

Lol... I should have added the club training too... but in my mind that would count as raising from pup to title... fyi I really hope to get in a club by end of February ... that's when my one on one training sessions run out and ill need to big more

I think most everyone trains with a club or group. Especially if they are new to the sport. Where I've trained(a few different clubs/groups) only a couple people had dogs that they didn't have as young pups. Most all are/were HOT.
Why are your sessions ending?
Can you still train with your one on one person, or are they going to be too busy when trial season kicks back up? If there is another person in your area, maybe you and that person could train together and the one on one trainer will reduce fees if there is more than just you w/ private lessons. Always good to have another dog on the field or in the venue just for distractions, too.

Club is the way to go!! It's so much fun. Great Convo, good friends and dog training. Doesn't get much better than that.

I've had no luck getting with a club in my area... there are three ... one isn't taking new members at all, one other never responded to my emails and phone calls... the other, after dozens of attempts to contact them, finally got back with me to invite me to meet them... they gave me less than an hour notice and I wasn't able to make it... I've even gone as far as to request different days off at work to accommodate... I work 6am-2pm... I was off Fridays and Saturdays .... beginning in February, ill be off on Sundays and Mondays ... this'll allow me to meet with a club on Sunday ... there is a trial coming here at Canine headquarters in February and Regionals in Houston in March ... going to do what I can to attend those to be able to meet some folks

I would say most either get a puppy or young untrained dog and train it themselves. I got mine at 8 weeks old and everything that is right or wrong with him his all me! :-)

Now I have had to retire my border collie from agility so I am starting him in Schutzhund too. So far he is loving it. That's what I think most people do train the dogs they have, themselves, for the joy of working with your dog.

Good luck to you! Clubs are great!
