Rocky Mountain Working Dogs was formed in 2015. We became a full member club in the Mid-Central Region of the United Schutzhund Clubs of America (USCA) in May of 2017.
We are Colorado’s premier all-breed Schutzhund/IGP working dog club with members dedicated to training and titling working dogs in the sport of Schutzhund/IGP and the promotion of working dogs for the sport of Schutzhund/IGP, police/military work, therapy and search and rescue work. As a Schutzhund/IGP working dog club, we train dogs for competition in all working phases including:
1) Tracking- Demonstrates the dog’s ability to independently problem solve.
2) Obedience- Demonstrates the dog’s trainability and ability to work with the handler.
3) Controlled Protection- Demonstrates the dog’s courage and suitability to the police/utility/working role.
As a USCA member club, we strive to preserve the German Shepherd Dog in accordance with the breed standard as a working dog, we promote the humane training methods for the working dog, we support responsible dog ownership and breeding practices, we educate the public about Schutzhund/IGP, we support and organize trials, training, and educational seminars, and provide a supportive environment where members are afforded the opportunity to work together to achieve goals set for themselves and their dogs.
We welcome new members seriously interested and committed to training and titling in all three phases of Schutzhund/IGP.
