Thanks for the quick reply! He actually did really well with the bath, I was surprised. As for protection..."protection" in my mind, from a dog, is simply alerting me that something is up so I can deal with the threat. Can you give me an idea of how much time is involved in Schutzhund? I'm glad to hear 42lbs isn't all that abnormal, I was a little worried about that although he seems very strong & healthy & happy. Just scheduled his first vet visit, he goes in Monday morning for an exam and shots.
