Rogue Valley Schutzhund & Police K-9 Club

The Rogue Valley Schutzhund & Police K-9 Club is a dedicated group of individuals that train for the German dog sport of Schutzhund (IGP). Started by Jason Lake nearly 20 years ago the Rogue Valley Schutzhund & Police K-9 Club is proud to be an affiliated club of Schutzhund USA. The Rogue Valley Schutzhund & Police K-9 Club is a group of like-minded individuals who, through their love of dogs, strive to better all breeds of dogs, especially those best suited for work. This is accomplished through the training and trialing of our dogs, as well as the daily activities and interaction with our dogs. We feel that our methods create a firm and lasting bond with our canine companions, a bond that we do not take lightly. We are a member Club of the United Schutzhund Clubs of America. Our main focus is the sport of Schutzhund.

The Rogue Valley Schutzhund & Police K-9 Club is a group of people with one common goal: To title our dogs in the sport of Schutzhund at the highest level possible. Members are NOT required to participate in all three phases of Schutzhund; Tracking, Obedience and Protection - if you only want to train in one of the phases but not the other (not in Protection) is up to you and your dog. We welcome any dog with working ability. Alongside our German Shepherds, we also have Rottweilers, Malinois, Doberman Pinscher, Giant Schnauzers and even mixed breeds within our membership.

Although the main focus of the RVSC is to title our dogs in the sport of Schutzhund, we also wish to give back to those who are in law enforcement and are K-9 handlers. For many years Schutzhund Clubs and Police and military dog handler‘s have worked closely together due to the similarities in training and methodology. So if you are a Police K-9 handler and are looking for assistance with your working dog, we would love to have you join us.


Our Club objectives are:

To encourage and promote the training of all breeds of working dogs for the sport of Schutzhund.

To support movements which demonstrate the advantages of Schutzhund training.

To support and organize seminars and trials for Schutzhund.

To support and organize breed surveys and conformation evaluations for working dogs.

To educate the public about the sport of Schutzhund.

To work towards obtaining Schutzhund Titles with our dogs.
