Welcome To Our Club

The club was founded by a small group of people who are interested in training and competing with their dogs in a mature, friendly and supportive environment. Our members are from all walks of life with varied occupations and other interests. We are all, however, students of the sport of Schutzhund, and always looking to improve our training methods and skills. We are serious about training our dogs, but emphasize having fun during training.We train in North Fort Myers, Florida.
