schutzhund trainers in MI?

|Anyone know of any that would be open to a someone with little experience and a gsd that is 7 months old? I have helped my sister a little when she works with her dog, but she is a few hours south of me. I have checked out some of the websites in Michigan but they seem outdated. |
Or, maybe I should go with a private trainer until I have a better handle on the beginning steps. any advice?

|I also live in Michigan and am taking an Intro type of class to see if I have a real interest, and to give me some beginning foundation if I do decide to join a club. The trainer is John Evans and I am so totally impressed with how in tune he seems with my 5 month old puppy. He used to be with O.G. club but I think he is doing mainly private lessons now. Best thing of all, he doesn't make me feel like a newb and spends as much time training me as he does the dog LOL|

|I don't think Tom Quakas club has a helper? Last time I went out was a long time ago, but not sure if |
that has changed.
They are also in Lower michigan that may be too far for you.

Newer club, working on paperwork to join the WDA and USA. Took a while to get things started but now it's taking off. We train Fridays and sometimes Sundays and/or Wed. at different locations, but it may change for fall/winter (we have people who drive 2 hours from each direction). We're getting our "real" field setup, all the permanent blinds are constructed and setup, I think we are going to level the field a bit more. We also have an indoor building which is great for winter/after dark/90+ degree heat. We have a lot of young dogs but everyone is committed to the sport. Right now we have a few dogs prepping for trials (SchH1 dog for 2 and 3, SchH 2 dog for 3, and SchH3 dog for more advanced competitions).
I think there's also a few other great clubs not necessarily affiliated with WDA or USA.

|Looking for a Sch. group somewhere around Grand Rapids. We have a male we have trained in French Ring and was wondering if we could convert , a female that has just started the bite work, and a 9 week old pup we would like to get started. All have great drive. does anyone know of a group in our area? I am basically looking for one I could join for trials or even if I could join just to trail- new to the Sch scene. Please let me know. Thanks|
