Smile Therapy Work and Schutzhund

Hello Everyone!

This is my first post, so I hope I am posting in the right place!! I am contemplating adding a German Shepherd to my family. First and foremost, he will be my companion, and I want to utilize him for therapy work (Animal Assisted Therapy), as I am getting my Master's Degree in Social Work. I have also looked into Schutzhund, and am really interested in getting into it, if I decide that a German Shepherd is the right breed for me. My question is would a working German Shepherd be good for Therapy work? Can they do both activities? I really hope to have breeders and those that are involved with A.A.T. and Schutzhunds to weigh in!!
