Matthew Downes adopted Harry a young German Shepherd Dog who was rescue dog. Living in Birmingham and working in Wythall things are good for the young man and his dog. However as Harry got bigger and older Matthew found that his pet was harder to handle as he got more and more distracted and unfocused. When considering what sort of training Harry would need Matthew decided that Harry would benefit most from specific GSD training so he joined the Wythall & District GSD Club. Matthew said "I needed to find some training as Harry was getting so distracted by everything and unfocused. I found this club and decided to give it a go. We’ve been coming the Wythall & District GSD Club for six weeks now and we’re both going to keep on coming. The training is excellent, it is informative and very helpful. There is a great atmosphere. Harry comes away focused and happy. I am looking forward to taking part in the dog show at the carnival and charity day, it should be a lot of fun for owners and their dogs.”

Julia Murdock who will be a Judge on the day and expert Dog Trainer at Wythall and District GSD club said, "We work with a lot of so rescue or called problem dogs.

More Info...

For further information on Wythall & District GSD contact Julia Murdock by email jmurd@blueyonder.co.uk For further information on Wythall Dog show and Carnival go to their website Notes to Editors Wythall GSD training methods involve the use of toys and tit-bits to encourage Shepherds to want to learn, rather than have to learn. Having said this we don't let them get away with blue murder and still believe in being in control. Lessons are broken up with lots of play for the dogs to try and keep them interested. We don't like to see them looking bored and doing flat heelwork. Providing the temperament of the Shepherd is OK we encourage them to socialise on lead. The younger dogs are allowed to run together in starter class, this improves their socialising skills and also the handlers ability to get the dogs to return when there are numerous distractions. Our main aim is obedience training with a pet perspective, We also have full scale agility equipment, and encourage the Shepherds to use it from an early age.
