Check Upcoming Florida IPO Shutzhund Trials
We encourage all new German Shepherd Puppy owners to get involved with dog sport. German Shepherds Florida can assist you in finding a local Schutzhund IPO , AKC, or Ring Club.
Let us help you connect with clubs and events!
BASIC OBEDIENCE - Working puppies trained according to the German Shepherds Florida IPO Foundations Training Schedule may begin basic obedience training at eight weeks of age. This training includes imprinting and shaping introductory commands such as: come, sit, down, and touch. The touch command is used for more complex touch pad training later in heeling, jumps, and send outs.
GSF TRACKING TRAINING SCHEDULE - Follow this link for easy to follow instructions in basic IPO Schutzhund Tracking for First Time IPO Dog Handlers.
German Shepherds Florida (GSF) will add more training aids for the New IPO Handler as time progresses to include basic Obedience and Protection Drills. For further and more personalized study we recommend seeking an IPO Schutzhund Club in your area and contacting our GSF Trainer.
CRATE TRAINING - All Handlers with German Shepherds trained by German Shepherds Florida are encouraged to crate train starting at eight weeks of age. At GSF we recommend crate training of all German Shepherds, especially working K9 pups and IPO sport dogs, as these German Shepherds will spend a good portion of their life in vehicles.
SOCIALIZATION- One of the most important phases of training a new puppy is how to behave around families and other dogs. At German Shepherds, the dogs we train will have a social advantage and head start on most kennel dogs as we actively socialize and encourage Handlers to neutralize each German Shepherd in our training system to people and other dogs.
REINFORCEMENT- Of course it is up to the new owner to reinforce these behaviors and insure continued education to assure success. For more extensive and advanced dog training we encourage every new dog owner to find a field sport of personal interest and unlock your German Shepherd's full potential.
