Wonderlake Schutzhund Club
Wonderlake Schutzhund is 65 miles Northwest of Chicago, approximately 20 minutes from the Wisconsin border. Our WorldClass Kennels are located on 40 acres which are surrounded by an additional 120 acres. It is a secluded piece of heaven, 3 blocks down a scenic private drive which is lined with giant White Pine trees.
There is a fully stocked pond which is fed by 12 natural springs on the property, where our shepherds can go swimming… The property is surrounded by ancient Oaks, Willows, and Pine trees. There is a 7 acre giant Oak Tree Forest on the property where more than 50 trees have flourished for over 100 years.
The kennels are a beautiful, state of the art facility with natural light skylights and ceiling fans that allow the dogs to spend time indoors and outdoors as they please. Each kennel offers a spacious 10×15 foot heated and air conditioned interior suite connected to a large 15×30 foot exterior run.
With the abundance of wildlife and fresh air on this gorgeous land, all of the dogs at WSC are all feeling like the luckiest dogs in the world!
WSC welcomes visitors anytime, please feel free to call and set up a time to visit.
Wonder Lake Schutzhund Club training days
Saturdays beginning at 12:00 noon
Wednesdays beginning at 7:00pm
*If you are interested in tracking your dog/s, you are welcome to come earlier and use the endless acres of prime tracking areas available. If you would like assistance with learning tracking, or need assistance with your tracking, please contact Julie Martinez and she will be happy to set up a training session with you.
On Saturdays, training continues all day and into the evening. Sign up board is first come first serve. You are welcome to come and train and stay all day if you like. If you need to come and work your dog/s and leave right away, that is also fine. We typically have BBQ pits fired up and food that our members and friends bring to training to enjoy, as well as soft drinks and beverages available as well. You are welcome to train and go or to come and spend as much of the day as your schedule allows. The more you see, the more you learn. The more questions you ask, the more you learn. Watching others working is an excellent way to learn more.
On Wednesdays, training begins at 7:00pm and we work until all of the dogs are trained.
