So I found a trainer out here who says she specializes in GSD for SAR training, perfect! Well, we observed one of her private sessions and her GSD is a LARGE female who was amazing at 1yr in a public location. Great on wait and recalls. The lab who was doing SAR training with her was great too! We went to puppy class yesterday, and though i didn't feel it was a structured "Sit" "Stay" "down" class...more of a proofing class with distractions, we had a good time. Sabo was the youngest. At the end of class they brought out agility equipment for the dogs to play with...and sabo LOVED the tunnel!!! I mean, LOVED IT! Charged right through, no hesitation!!! It's a decent price, just means I have to really do my homework. We have a beginning SAR class Tuesday that hubby is taking Sabo to on Tuesday, I can't wait! It's basically a socialization for the puppies, playing with "find it" and treats.
