I don't know about the champion part, but it sounds like your dog is a prospect based on his general bloodlines and parents' accomplishments.

And you would know this from your vast titling and trial experience right? What you did a BH 9 years ago?

Aside from the fact that the question was not "is my dog a good schutzhund prospect"....

I asked because many people think just because a dog is a GSD, it can do sport. Keith, I could argue there can be a great deal of training involved that is more challenging and not so blatently repetitive in the non trial training world. As far as I know, people who handle dogs in real working situations don't have to ever have titled or trialed a dog. It is kind of like synchronized swimming. Alot of training goes into that.

I would love to get my dog into schutzhund but I just think the.costs are.too high.at.this.time. I was thinking of even possibly doing personal protection work instead of joining a schutzhund club and paying that $50-$100 per week cos. Any thoughts on this?
Time is the biggest investment in my experience. Off course time is money so there goes
