Re: Working with my eight week old Dutch?

You can't go wrong following the advice from those at Wallace's club!

Some very good advice here but until you know what's expected from your club it is to easy for a beginner to create problems for later training.

Bite work can be critical with some puppies.

Right now, we are playing games. Having fun while she is teething.

We play chase games with the bite rag. People at South Metro Schutzhund said not to let her bite too much while she is teething.

To that end, I'm spending about 5 minutes at a time getting engagement and focus with her. We also work with touchpads for hind end awareness.

Thank you for asking, I'm loving Wallace's club so far!

Does all of this sounds pretty good?

Yup sounds great! Perfect age appropriate work in my opinion. The touch pads will really help down the line for fronts, retrieves and even position for heeling. Sounds like you are on your way to building a nice working bond with your pup.

Re: Working with my eight week old Dutch?

That's one seriously cute pup ya got there!
I met my first dutch shepherd at the club yesterday. They are unusual here in Oz, not rare, but not common either.
The dog was 1yr old. And fast as a bullet. Joined the club 8 weeks before i saw him train. And he did everything asked of it, with all his heart. Gorgeous dogs! And IMO better to look at than the Mal, that still looks like an emaciated GSD to my ignorant eyes.
