    Workshop Details

    The purpose of these workshops is to introduce you to the other local German Shepherd owners in a relaxed environment while improving socialization/obedience skills and knowledge. Students of all levels are welcome. Come learn unique training techniques that increase your demonstrated performance each month. Students will have fun training with ideas that they learn at the workshop and practice during the month. Your dog will be wagging its tail as it learns to work with you as the pack leader as a team. This is a positive and confidence building training for your GSD. This will provide more thought provoking techniques that will make training your best friend easier. You will develop into a happier and better-behaved team at your leisure activities or competing in the ring.

    For the pet owners, learn ideas that make owning a GSD a pleasure and not a stressful day in the park. Learn why GSDs are considered such a smart breed and bring out the best in your pet.

    Issues such as controlled barking, being a responsible GSD owner, having better control in daily activities and your personal issues are worked on each month. Learn to walk in control of your GSD responsibly and leave no doubt in your dog’s mind that you are the pack leader.

    Enjoy getting out with our Group Walks, to proof your dog in real life situations, and join the Demo Team (seen below in past videos) for even more pet-friendly fun!
