That is where I used to live. This is your lucky dayI am in Heidelberg area. I know absolutely nothing about a good versus bad dog club. This will be the first working dog and the first German Shepherd I have had. These are amazing dogs. I really have never met an animal like a German Shepherd. So intuitive and sympathetic. Amazing. Okay, so anyways, I want to get really involved, my dog is from working lines (obviously in germany,) lol, anyways, he is just not satisfied unless we are working and he is learning. And this is at 12 weeks old. I definitely think he has the ability to do well. I also have the luxury of not having to work so I get to spend all my time with him. I really want to get him as ready as possible, and to train correctly so that he gets a chance to do what he's meant to do.Any advice is more than welcome. Big ambitions here!
The Schutzhund People train Wednesday and Saturday. He will probably tell you to visit the puppy class first but to show your ambitions you should go out there every wednesday and saturday to watch the Schutzhund training, that will also give you an idea about the Club and how people deal with each other and your puppy can get used to the environment and possibly play tug-o-war games.Contact:

The hair doesn't make any difference. It's the lines that can give you an indicator. Do you have the lines? Is he on workingdog or pedigree database?So, are there any opinions on the ability of a longhair vs a shorthair as far as schutzhund is concerned? My dog is extremely laid back, but extremely assertive. He is not hyperactive or spastic whatsoever. Maybe this is because we are out playing in the fields for the better part of a few hours a day or is it because he is too calm? eitherway he is very sure of himself, but not "puppyish" in the ridiculously destructive sense of the word. Any ideas?
