Welcome to the board! and it's not everyday that I see Columbus, GA on here .... I'm from there!

Unfortunately, I don't know of anyone off the top of my head. Check out dog trainers in the yellow pages, I think there is a someone in Phenix City or as a last resort I would ask the people at PetsMart or Petco if they know of anyone.

Good luck and sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Hi and welcome!
We actually have a training group that meets in Columbus(although we have been a bit lax lately). We do not do protection work here---the two of us most active also belong to a Schutzhund club in the Atlanta area. You need to be VERY careful of anyone doing protection work in the Columbus area.
What we do is basic obedience, imprinting, socializing, etc. We have members who do schutzhund, AKC, herding, and AKC conformation stuff.

Although I have not updated it since last year, here is our webpage.... http://www.geocities.com/cwdclub/1

Stewart Harvard is who I used for Basic Ob with my Shepherd. He sold Harvards to ? His farm is right next to them. His new place is Marengo Creek farm. I highly recommend him.

I adore Stewart! I recently had both my GSDs with him. His place is spotless and he's just kind and so practical with the dogs. I'd like to know how I can move into Merengo Creek Farm for a few weeks!

training

might be ok for OB but complete dog training for everything your GSD will need to have Timsk9, he trains all breed of dogs and the ones they can not train go to timsk9 I have seen him with the largest of breeds to the smallest of breeds and also with the pitbulls no one can get close too. we train every wed. and tim has his dogs out at sandfort road park every night and its so nice to be able to watch and talk about our dogs and other training needs!

BTW: The only "reputable," "professional" trainer I would recommend is Harvard's K9 in Phenix City/Crawford area.

My Zappa was trained there. Actually, he was boarded there for 18 months when I was deployed to Iraq. I was very happy with them.

This is an old thread, but to clarify......
I used quotes for a reason. There are certainly other trainers in the area. I have referred several people interested in protection work to one person in particular.
But Harvards is the one facility that I feel very comfortable recommending to a wide variety of people.

I just reread my post and realized it was slightly argumentative. Sorry about that. It wasn't meant that way. I truly was happy with them. They were so attached to my Zappa he was in their 2003 Christmas photo. :)
