In the small Town of Cedarburg Wisconsin one family has been notified they are about to be sued by the Town. On Sept 7th 2011 the Town of Cedarburg Town Board held a closed meeting to discuss whether to take legal action against Clayton Warichak a Town resident. The town board called Mr. Warichak to the meeting to discuss dog training held at the Warichak farm in Cedarburg. Warichak was not allowed to speak at the closed meeting and residents of the Town were told to leave before the meeting started. Clayton Warichak is a German Shepherd breeder for over 20 years. As a part of responsible dog breeding Mr. Warichak believes that breeders should make themselves available for all puppy buyers. Mr. Warichak offers free Schutzhund dog training to every person who buys a dog from him. On Saturdays from 11am-3pm the Warichak family has about ten dogs and families over for a pot luck barbeque. The Warichak family offers training advice and dogs are able to train for obedience and Schutzhund on their 12 acre farm. The training area is set in an open field surrounded by wooded conservation lands. The Town constable contacted Mr Warichak regarding mostly anonymous complaints of dogs barking. The Ozaukee County Sheriff also received an anonymous complaint early this summer. The Sheriffs department did respond to the complaint and watched the dog training for about one hour. No citations or warning were issued. On August 1st the Warichak family did decide to take action regarding the noise complaint by having loud or barking dogs muzzled. Although the noise complaint has been resolved the Town Board did make a Closed Meeting decision to take legal action against Clayton Warichak stating that organized dog training is not allowed in a residential area. The Town of Cedarburg currently does not have a law to restrict dog training.

What is wrong with the town of cedarburg? Dog training is completly LEGAL!! People with dogs gathering for barbeques is also legal!! I thought cedarburg was a family friendly place. I will remember this article before spending my money at future Cedarburg events.

hogwash. Our breeder invited past puppy buyers to her trainers (herding) farm for a potluck and herding instinct testing day. There will be alot of GSD there. I'm interested in how this town/township/board thinks they can press charges against someone for something that has no ordinance or law made to regulate it - dog training on someone's private property????
