Uschi Fuchs is in Phoenix area - she is Austrian, trains in Germany - was Malinois World Champion and competed 4X in Malinois world Championships. She is an outstanding trainer for Schutzhund, protection - and an excellent helper too! If you like I can find her contact information.
Are you looking for personal protection type stuff or protection sport. There are 2 Schutzhund clubs out here and hopefully a newly forming Mondio club. There are a couple people doing French Ring in Phoenix but no official club that I know of.
