Red River Working Dogs -- a DVG Club
Welcome to Red River Working Dogs, the DVG Club located in and dedicated to serving the working dog community of Texoma (north Texas and southern Oklahoma). We pride ourselves on having helpful, positive, supportive and friendly-competitive attitudes and a steady focus on helping each Team Member and their Dog be the best they can be.
Our training facility is in Savoy, Texas, about 20 minutes east of Sherman, Texas, just two miles south of the Red River. The Red River Working Dogs Club is a full member club of the DVG Midwest Krisgruppe (Region) which encompasses AR, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, MI, MN, MO, NE, ND, OH, OK, SD, TN, TX and WI. Our mission is to support, promote, and organize working dog sport activities (training, seminars, and competitions) as set forth by Deutscher Verband der Gebrauchschundsportvereine (DVG) and the FCI, via the training and titling of dogs in the sport of Schutzhund.
Our club members range from folks new to the sport to experienced dog handlers working to elevate their performance in the sport. As a DVG club, our club members own a variety of breeds, including but not limited to German Shepherds, Dobermanns, and Bouviers.
Our club is extraordinarily fortunate to have as our Training Director, the renowned and very successful trainer, Joanne Fleming-Plumb. We believe we are that hard to find club with internationally-credentialed leadership that has experience and success working with multiple breeds, drive levels, and training approaches in such a way that with hard work and dedication, each dog and handler can become the best they can possibly be.
