I'm living in Pinellas county Florida. My fiance and I are looking at getting a GSD, it's going to be a little while before we do so, I have no idea about the breed and I want to make sure we're ready. I'd love to find a club near by (within an hour and a half) and talk to someone about joining.

I've been looking, and have found only a couple, one is really out dated and I haven't gotten a response to my e-mail. I was just wondering if anyone on here knew of a reputable club or organization that would be a good one to start with.

Thanks all!
Nora

I know there are a lot of inactive clubs listed in Florida...It's hard to find people still working their dogs.

There's Iron Dog in Ocala.

And here's a list for DVG clubs in Florida...

I'm not sure which ones are active, but I recall that there was a trial down in Punta Gorda not too long ago so Peace River might be active and I would find out about SCO and where they train...it might not be in Orlando exactly, and don't miss the opportunity to go check out DVG Nationals in Clermont in a few weeks! If you're interested in Schutzhund this will give you an opportunity to really see some competitors and maybe an opportunity to get in touch with some people in the area.

Hi Nora,

There are DVG clubs in the area and here is a link to the DVG site.
DVG America Southeast Region

Depending on where you are in Pinellas you should be able to locate a club within that driving distance.

Thanks!

I'll have to check out that trial. I do want to watch a couple, and talk to people who do work their dogs. And meet dogs who love it! I'll definitely take a look at the site and e-mail people.
