Phantom, I have a 12 week old GSD now that ive had since he was 8 weeks. He got his final set of shots Saturday and hit the schutzhund field for the first time last night. I didnt joined beforehand, just showed up with my pup, started talking to everyone and got an app to join. Most of the people are very down to earth and ready to help, ESPECIALLY WITH A PUPPY! As of right now, alot of prey drive with a flirt pole and alot of positive reinforcement obedience training. Our pups still have a longgg way to go before they are actually on the field doing work so for now its all socialization and positive reinforcement.
