Anyone do French Ring?
I was just wondering who here does French Ring. Surely someone here does it! Haha.
I noticed that the sport seems to be ruled by Mals with GSDs and other breeds sprinkled in between.
I don't want to keep bugging my breeder if I'm not going to be getting my GSD in the near future, since she's busy with current puppy buyers, but considering she does PSA and most of her dogs have a ZVV1 title (that's like SchH in Czech Republic, right?), I imagine she'd be able to pick out a puppy for me that's suitable for the sport.
There's a few clubs near me that do it, and a member of my flyball team is active in the sport.
I know that it is far more demanding in a lot of ways than SchH. Has anyone that's active in SchH (or has been in the past) currently active in French Ring? What are the primary differences to you? Pros and cons to each? Which do you prefer?
Would it be difficult for a dog to start with SchH and transition to French Ring? Or would it be best to start with French Ring so they don't develop what would possibly considered to be 'bad habits' from SchH?
