Seeking Advice

I'm very very new to this type of topic so please bare with me.
I am very interested in doing some sort of protection sport with Troy. All of his bloodlines have some sort of titles in them with Schutzhund I believe. I know right now he is only 8 weeks but can anyone in the Detroit Metro area help me find a good place I could look into? Or some advice how I can get started? He really likes chasing a flirt pole and tugging it so far, so I think he'd be fairly good at it.

Here's his pedigree so if I'm missing something please let me know! Thank you!!

Crooked River's Troy von Seidenbach

Looks like a show line pedigree, but yes, with some Schutzhund titles.

Not sure how far you are from this club, but I'd contact them. I think the sooner you start Schutzhund foundation, the easier time you'll have in the sport in the long run.

Milan is about a 40 minute drive from here, I'd definitely look into that. Thank you!

Chris' club (Wildhaus) won't be on the USCA website since they are not a sanctioned club (where we train is not large enough for trials). You can send Chris Wild a PM on this board or just email her using the same email as for their kennel. I can recommend either mentioned and also, if you don't mind the drive, Gustavo Sanchez at the Capitol Area Club.

Thanks guys!
I know this type of training can be fairly expensive; but do you guys know how much it generally costs to do this monthly?

The USCA clubs that I train with have yearly dues, usually around $300+ in my area, plus membership with USCA and some additional fees sometimes for helpers.

I'm jealous! Congrats on your pup and thinking about protection sport, I have heard that starting them young is good. I would love to do protection sport but I got stuck with mr. Goofball over here, so we just are getting into dock jumping. If you do go into protection sport with Troy, make sure to post pics and updates! I'd love to hear about it :-)

Just curious but do you know if they train puppies? Or is it just adult dogs?
