Your Schutzhund trainer said NO obedience? Did they mean for the 8 weeks old puppy or while your dog was an older puppy / young adult? Lots of competition dogs just enjoy drive building and socialization / bond building the first few weeks of life at their new home but obedience does start early. Obedience is the foundation of it all, you should definitely be doing obedience with a older puppy / young adult / adult / senior.
Sorry you had a bad day... sounds like all you need is some good consistent training and good manners building! Things will get better, don't stress.

So I got a force dryer yesterday and ups left it on the porch. I opened the door and let her out while I picked up the box. A lady was walking down the road and when she saw Apache she was freaking out. She just stayed still and cowered and quietly said no no no. She was seriously scared of dogs. Apache ran straight for her and even jumped up! It was similar to another story on here except no falling or injuries.
I did shutz last year and the trainer was always saying no to obedience but I need to get into a good obedience class to stop the jumping on people.
