Anyone do schutzhund? I am looking for information on it, how to get involved ect.

Oh and where to find a european bred shepherd (without the extreme slope to the back/low croup)

Yep, trained my Rottiweiler (with the help of a trainer). He excelled at the obedience part, but not at the tracking for obvious reasons.

Suprisingly, at the same time I also had a German-bred, GS that was NOT schutzhund material. Great dog, but not the brightest light on the christmas tree. lol

You've got to start with regular obedience training and reach a fairly high level in that, and then you need to have your dog evaluated by a Schutzhund trainer to make sure the temperment is the right kind.

I think it took about 6 months of training and then you'll have regular 'maintenance' training after that depending how 'sharp' you want your dog, if you're competing etc...

I found my trainer in the yellow pages, but you can probably find one through a kennel club. And it's expensive.

I took my dog to obedience with Ruth Yeulett of Shannon Lake Kennels, here in Kelowna.

She is a national champion Shutzhund trainer, and also breeds GSD's.

Let me know if you would like me to pm you her phone #, or you will be able to find her on Canada411 under Yeulett, George & Ruth.

Ive done two lessons witha trainer with it. It was amazing how fast my big lap dog turned it on. It took a bit the first ime. Now if I give him the command he is great, I even had to use it once. I feel very safe. You really have to have the right dog for it though. Tammy

Ya, I still have to get a dog for it, just looking in to it right now. Also looking at the breed standards of the dogs and differences between the Show GD and working GS.

There are lots of working dog breeders of GS, Rotties and dobes (I prefer GS or Rottie though)

Somehow I just dont think our St bernard Mastiff X would be very good at it--he can barely drag his butt off his couch let alone climb/jump a 6 ft wall lol :P

Here is a great site that breaks down the levels....I actually thought protection didnt play a big part in the firsat level...oops

Wonder if there is sucha thing as just 'tracking and obedience" without the man eating aspect?

Showline (German anyways) GSD's can work in SchH just as well as the working line. I work at a GSD breeders place and they have their own Schutzhund club. PM me if you want more info
