Me too. I like many of the SDA exercises but their trials are so few and far between. There hasn't been one in MI since fall of 2010 despite two different clubs keep telling me they are planning them. I don't consider my dog a "personal protection dog" but I like training outside the box (ie, not just SchH exercises and will my dog release a sleeve before I speak the "s" in "aus" sort of thing).

My dogs are mainly used as a first line of defense to give me time to get to my main object of defense. I use them mostly as a deterrent in my vehicle and in and around my home/farm so my training revolves around these areas. I mostly do IPO and then add in suit and hidden sleeve work.

To me, just having a GSD with you is kinda like walking around with a shotgun. It may, or may not be loaded but most people aren't going to try to find out.

I personally don't feel like I need protecting from my dogs, so not something I really put a lot of thought into. (I'm normally more worried about protecting people from my dogs lol)

Oh, nice. I am a member, but hadn't noticed that info...thanks for the heads up! Any ideas on time frame?

Are you considering letting retired police handlers or trainers being able to compete....I think that would really enlarge the participation of this aspect of USCA.

There are discussions with regard to folks other than working police being able to obtain the title yes.
