We invite you to explore the challenging world of Schutzhund, the triathlon of dog sports. The sport consists of routines and exercises from 3 basic categories. The categories are obedience, tracking and protection. Easier said than done!
The sport goes beyond AKC obedience or agility trials by testing your dog to its limits. It is a great test of the dogs overall abilities and temperament. It was originally created as a German Shepherd breeding standard to weed out the less desirable genetics.
Many police service dogs start in Schutzhund as a foundation for the skills they will need in their future careers.
Although some breeds are more suited than others all breeds are welcome. The club has seen German Shepherds, Belgian Malinois, Dutch Shepherds, American Staffordshire Terriers, Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, Bouvier Des Flandes and many others over the years.
Come join us during one of our training sessions in Albuquerque to see the fun and excitement this sport has to offer. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
We are a fully recognized member club of the USA (United Schutzhund Clubs of America).
