I went to Petsmart to get a couple of those dog maxi-pad holder diaper things, and talked to the trainer that they have there, the one who recommended the Schutzhund trainer to me, about him. He told me that that guy's pretty flakey. THANKS FOR THE HEADS-UP 8 MONTHS LATER. So apparently it's very likely that he just completely flaked out, goodbye, hey thanks for that mortgage payment-sized check, see ya... Luckily the Petsmart trainer has a conscience and is willing to train my dog. He's looking to start a club up around Webster I guess, which is much closer than Hockley where the only other one is. Looks like I may be able to get at least a BH on her (or hell, a brevet would be good enough to start) before I graduate.

What type of dog is Freya, and what kind of training was she supposed to be getting? I'm kinda interested in having my German Shepherd trained as a guard dog, but I'm not too sure where to start looking.

Freya is a German Shepherd Dog. She was getting trained for a Schutzhund title, supposedly. If you want to get guard dog training, that's not exactly the same thing, but it's not that different either. A good place to start looking is google to find which trainers are near you. Or go to the nearest petsmart and ask the trainers there for recommendations for protection/guard dog trainers around you. Then try to check the people out online, although it doesn't always work. The people over on the Leerburg Kennel board (http://www.leerburg.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php) might be able to help you out. Good luck.
