We meet every Sunday Morning at 10.00 in North Fort Myers. Here we train and
socialize our Dogs with other Humans and other Dogs. Humans and Dogs are
learning Traffic Sureness, Obedience and depending on Owner and Dog the
Schutzhund Training includes Traffic Sureness BH), Obedience, Tracking and
Protection (Schutzdienst). It means also to show the dog situations where he
needs to announce a stranger thru barking, he has to learn.. and decide when he
needs to go one step further and is allowed to bite and the most important thing,
that he stops attacking immediately after the attacker stops attacking. This
Training will be in form from sport and fun but only self secure Dogs and Owners
will be allowed to participate. Aggressive Dogs or Dogs with weak character will
not be permitted to participate in the Schutzdienst (Protection) Training.
Our very experienced Breed Warden, Gerard Thanhoffer, will be available for
Members who have questions about the German Shepherd Dog as well as for
Members who want to breed themselves. In over 20 years he has bread over 200
German Shepherds, a lot of them won national and international Titles.
And of course we have a lot of social club events with a lot of fun for dogs and dog
We have 2 German Shepherd Dogs and they just love going out to the Training Field on Sundays. They enjoy the lessons and they enjoy being among other dogs. My Husband and I enjoy being out there as well and we like being with other dog owners. The Trainers and Handlers are very helpful and our dogs learned a lot.
