About Us


Welcome to the Gulf Coast Schutzhund Club, Ft. Myers, Inc.  Our club is a non-profit training club. As an IGP/Schutzhund Club, our members have various breeds of working dogs. However, we are primarily dedicated to the fun of training our German Shepherd dogs to the German Standard of the IGP/Schutzhund title.

We encourage a fun, relaxed, and open-minded environment. We have dogs and handlers at all levels with a common desire to advance their skills and train their dogs to achieve at their highest potential.

This website is to inform you about our club and to serve as an invitation to all who share our passion and love for dogs and their proper training.
