The Delmarva German Shepherd Dog Club is a private organization, one which promotes the working lines German Shepherd breed on the Delmarva Peninsula. Through a variety of club related activities and scenarios, our dogs and their owners can meet for training sessions, clinics, K-9 demonstrations, and to promote upcoming litters from responsible club breeders.
If you expect nothing, you will get nothing!
You purchased the working lines puppy and now see that it's full of drive and biting issues. Some well meaning folks will tell you to grab the muzzle and smack its face. Other folks tell you to squeeze the muzzle until the puppy hollers. You purchased a working lines animal for a reason...if the puppy knows it can be hurt by its PACK LEADER, why would it feel comfortable "defeating" someone it doesn't know? You've just taken the first steps in ruining your animal with misinformation like that.
Your dog or puppy is like a savings account, what you put into now will showcase in the years to come. This is why we use marker training in ever venue. Our protection style of training works more from the concepts of positive, prey development with the dog and a simple understanding of the methods for the handler.
We feel it's better to spend quality time training our dogs and less time testing them. When the venue is fun for all, great things can happen! See the action for yourself.
"The breeding of shepherd dogs is the breeding of working dogs and this must always be the aim or we shall cease to produce shepherd dogs." -Max Von Stephanitz
