The German Dog Training Center is a 7 acre facility located in Northern California. It is home to Zwinger vom Heidelberger Schloss, a kennel owned by Thomas Sauerhoefer, a German Shepherd Breeder with over three decades of experience breeding, training and showing German Shepherd Dogs in both Germany and the United States. The German Dog Training Center is also the home training field for the Marysville Schutzhund Club, a very active GSDCA WDA club. The Marysville Schutzhund Club hosts an average of 3 Schutzhund trials a year, in addition to participating in community events and sponsoring AKC events like Canine Good Citizen testing. The club participates in events throughout the Northern California area, including Marysville, Yuba City, Grass Valley, Sacramento and San Francisco. Members come from all over Northern California to train at the facility.
