I doubt very much that when you got Yochi it was ONLY to have a competitive Schutzhund dog - so let him be a pet to the family, wasn't that the point? To enjoy the dog and have him as part of the family?
The training and competition is extra. Either he has it in him to be competitive, or not. You enjoy the process and learn along the way. Win-Win!
