The Arkansas Schutzhund Club. . We were established in 1990 as a member club of DVG America. DVG is the oldest and largest Schutzhund training organization in the world. In addition to Schutzhund many other title opportunities are offered by DVG America.
Schutzhund in German means protection dog. It was originally a test to determine which dogs were worthy of breeding. Schutzhund gives us the ability to test our dogs to determine if the temperament is correct and to view their working ability. It is also a highly competitive sport that is maintained by the efforts of teamwork between the handler and his/her dog. Schutzhund is designed for the dogs with working ability. All breeds are eligible to compete and are welcome at our club.
We have members of all skill levels from novice to national competitors. Along with varying levels of experience our members train and support many different training methods. If you are new to dog training, we know how intimidating it can be the first time you step out on the field with your dog. Our club atmosphere is friendly, patient and supportive. We share experiences, are open minded and offer constructive criticism to help improve our training. We all work hard to achieve our training goals, strengthen our bond with our dog and have fun.
We have hosted many national and regional trial events in addition to our regular club trials. abundant . Contact us to schedule a visit.
