Mark Chaffin has been in the sport of Schutzhund for over 40 years and titled his first dog in 1978. He is training director of High Plains SchH Club in Colorado, which started in June of 1990 and is a full member of the United Schutzhund Clubs of America.

Mark's club is a highly successful and competitive schutzhund training club that believes in training all three phases of the sport. He has club members that travel as far as 8 hours ONE WAY! - to train with him. Club members have moved from Maryland and Nebraska to be in High Plains SchH Club.

Mark's schutzhund training style is similar to martial arts. He works with every level of dog from pet to serious competition dogs. We are not just cookie trainers.


Training Videos !!!!!

I have learned there is a tremendous need for high quality training at an affordable price. How did I know? Well, I've seen many people, myself included, in that situation.

In the beginning I had very little access to "hands on" training, so I did the best I could. You can imagine how excited I was every time I got to work with a top notch trainer. My training would improve overnight!

Many years later, I started teaching and doing seminars. Everywhere I went, dog owners would tell me there wasn't anyone "good" in the area. I thought "How can that be?" So here's MY answer to that problem...

 (get training videos from one of the best trainers in the country!)
