Starting a PSA club in Sacramento
by Get A Real Dog on 25 October 2008 - 00:41
I am seriously considering starting a new working dog club in the Sacramento Area.
This will be a CLUB. Not a business operation disguised as a club. My vision is an all-sport venue club focusing on PSA and Ring Sport but open to any and all dog sports and police service dogs. One that is active in hosting and traveling to seminars of all venues to increase our knowlege and allow us to put more tools in out training tool box.
I am not interested in having to do things "my way". Tell me what your goals are and I will do my best to help you achieve them. Are you interested in PSA? Great, I can get you there. Interested in Ring sport? Let's work hard, attend some seminars and get at it. Trying to become a LE handler? I can help you. Do agility? Bring your equipment, you are more than welcome.
I want a club that is laid back, open and friendly to all who wish to come train. My experience is primarily PSA and police service dogs but have titled a dog in French Ring. I will encourage our club and members to host and travel to training seminars in mulitple venues to increase our knowlege and skills.
I have competed on the regional and national level in PSA and NAPD. I have titled dogs in 3 different sport venues. For 5 years, I was the main training decoy for one of the most succesful PSA clubs on the west coast and one of the best LE trainers in the area.
If you do not want to pay a bunch of dues, pay a decoy to work your dog, or deal with a bunch of BS. Come on out. Everyone is welcome.
If your interested you can PM me here, or contact me at K9sbitekeister@yahoo.com

|Very good post, but it should show on main page as a new post.. |
What I like is the idea of combining Ring Sport clubs like, Fr Ring sport
and NVBK, and PSA.. Because there are so few clubs in the USA. But collectively
they my be more attractive and practical.

|Where in California are you? There are FR clubs in the Sacramento/Stockton area and the San Diego/Los Angeles area. You can find a list of clubs on the NARA website at www.ringsport.org|

|Yes we are still training in Sacramento. Last summer we had about 12-15 dogs a week, but as is common, once people find out you have to train multiple times every week to get a dog to competition level, they fade out. Additionally you get the ones who just come for free/inexpensive training while they train with another club.|
So we have 3 hard chargers that show up every week. Anyone who is interested in seriously training and willing to commit is welcome to come out. If you are actively training with another club or want a "PPD" there is a fee per session.
I will be calling you soon on one of your litters :)
