GDA Presents Suzanne Clothier

GDA Presents Puppy Raising Expert Suzanne Clothier

GDA is pleased to host Suzanne Clothier for an exciting three-day seminar. Suzanne has raised eight generations of her Hawks Hunt German Shepherds, as well as litters of other breeds. Her approach to puppy raising has helped private breeders of several breeds raise “the best puppies ever.” Most notably, her ideas have been put to the test since 2008 being used with thousands of puppies at multiple guide and service dog schools.
