Look up Red Dirt Ringer, they are in Oklahoma City, that's the group we trained with.

Your little one sounds just like my Mal! She used to want to greet every single person/dog we saw during walks. She is still very people and dog-friendly, but now understands that we don't need to say "hi" to everyone

For socialization, as a puppy, we only allowed her to interact with dog-neutral dogs on purpose. We didn't want her to think of other dogs as playmates. It depends on what your goal is, we wanted her to become more or less dog-neutral as an adult.

We dabbled in agility for a little bit, mainly for her exposure. Mondioring takes a lot of commitment, but if you can find the time to do it, it is a lot of fun. My club member wasn't kidding when he said Mondioring is not a dog sport, it is a lifestyle, LOL.

Mondioring is a protection sport, but that's different from personal protection training. Find a good club and they can guide you in the right direction base on your puppy's temperament and drives.

I can not thank you enough for all of this information! I am looking them up right now.
Oh goodness, that is one of my baby's set backs! We will be on a walk and he will run straight into a tree because he will be busy looking behind him at a person he wants to say hi to Little brat haha.

I want him to be more dog neutral but it can be hard. My other dog is very "neutral" with him but he just runs underneath her and bites her ankles trying to get her to play haha. Slowly but surely we are working on it!!!! Haha

I know what you mean, it was like every stranger was a possible long lost family member and she just had to make sure that she didn't miss one by accident

Keep re-directing though, with maturity, it will get better and better. At 2.5 years old, we are very happy with her. We managed to teach her impulse control, without dampening her spirit. She got her CGC last month, she did fine walking in a crowd and ignoring a dog while another handler and I greeted each other, something I thought she was never going to be able to do, LOL.

She is too much for our dog-neutral senior GSD, and our then 2-year-old GSD didn't want to play with her, so she had very limited interaction with our resident dogs growing up (we use gates and crates to separate them). It worked out well, she learned to focus on us for play.

LOL, it is meant for us to meet on this board

You can try Bob Deeds at Canine Connection
Home

He trains with our ring club, his Malinois already has a Mondioring Brevet, they are working on Mondioring 1. All the other good Mal/GSD trainers we know of are hobbyists, none of them is teaching.
