Still Interested? Next Steps

Perspective members must train with the club 4 times* before they are eligible to submit a membership application. This gives you a chance to learn more about the sport while allowing us to evaluate your dog's potential. Our evaluation process will test your dog's temperament, drives (food/prey/defense), and genetic abilities. Although there is no minimum age for your dog, we ask that all dogs be up to date on their vaccinations. All breeds, whether purebred or mixed, are welcome to participate.

*The first training session is free and you are welcome to bring your canine(s). Attendance at your second training session and each thereafter, until accepted as a member, is $10.00 each visit.

We also recommend you review the clubs regulations

Don't have a Dog?

No problem! Many people have either competed in the past and are thinking about getting back into the sport or they just simply wish to learn more. Rogue Valley Schutzhund Club is always open to those who have an interest in being a helper (decoy) or those who want to expand their knowledge of training the working dog.
