Hi everyone!

I am Dani. I live up in the Northeast! The family I work for just got a puppy, and I am going through withdrawals! I adopted an adult GSD, and he was a love. He has since passed, and I am not in a place to have a dog right now, but I would love to get back into the dog world a little bit with other people's dogs! Is that a thing? Looking for connections and seeing what kind of events are still happening this year. I am also kind of building a network so that, when I am ready for a GSD puppy, I know where to jump! But that is years out. Ha.

Thanks!

Thanks to Cadfael and Rionel!

Does anyone have any advice for what to poke around at? Eventing is carefully picking back up during this pandemic, and I was hoping to find some local stuff (I am in Massachusetts) to bebop around to.

There is a lot going on on this board! Lol. Do you guys have a collection of events I can pick through to see what is still running this year, and which of them intend to allow spectators?

Also, any Must-Reads from the board? There is a ton of information! Lol. My roommates just got a standard poodle puppy and I have already forwarded a few of your puppy threads. Lol

My goal is just prep. I have had a shepherd before, but I adopted an older guy. He was awesome, but definitely show lines. I am planning to get a working line shepherd in a year and a half, and I want exposure in the meantime. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!!

Sorry, but I don't currently do anything organized GSD events. You may check on AKC.org and see if you can find a breed specific calendar of events. Also, you may look up the nearest GSD dog club and inquire with them. I googled "massachusetts gsd clubs" and got a pretty good list. I also talked with Richard Shook in North Carolina a few weeks ago, and he's very helpful. He may be able to recommend one over another.
