Default SchH

What is the attraction to sch It is no longer a testing or proving ground How many physically test the dog to see if it quits and is a curr To me it is just a frilly sport
What use is a dog on trac with its nose planted on the ground Kinda works against the sent cone Do you let the dogs water scent but I doubt sch dogs do that
How come the decoy dose not evaid the dog
To me not real life scenarios at all

For one thing, it's a great bonding experience for you and your dog, and it's fun. You meet people, go places, etc.

Although some of it has been watered down, it is still a good test. The journey will tell you what you need to know about the dog, and the result will tell everyone else.

You might get more answers if your grammar, sentence structure and spelling weren't so poor, and the question wasn't so insulting........

You are asking to be what it is not. It is not personal protection training, military training, or what have you. It is a specific sport that most people do for fun. But it is also used as a breed survey. If a dog can succeed at a high level in sch it shows the dog is capable of producing some offspring that will contain the qualities required for PP/K9/Military.

Essentially what your question comes down to is why do any dog sport? What good is dock jumping....oh so my dog can retrieve a ball by jumping off a dock! woohoo! But maybe with some additional training and proper breeding it could be used to develop some great hunting/retrieving dogs.

It's a fun sport. Many SchH prospect dogs have hips and elbows checked. And like someone else mentioned, it's not like police or military training. It's a sport. Something fun and interactive for the handler and dog to enjoy. I absolutely love the sport. It gives me a rush.
And if you are looking for something more "real life", you could try to get involved in personal protection training.

IPO is still challenging despite being watered down. If it wasn't, all dogs would be passing.

IPO tracking tests not just tracking, but the dogs ability to maintain focus and intensity. It is also a good foundation for SAR work.

Why the sleeve and not a suit? Probably because it was easier for the helper to control the dog, do the drives and put the dog into a stressful position (when done correctly the drive puts a lot of pressure on a dog).

IPO also tests the character of the people and many people fail.

I'd argue the suit makes it much easier to put the dog into a stressful position. Also, from a decoy's standpoint, driving the dog is easier than on a sleeve.

Only if the dog bites the right part of the suit. It is also easier for the dogs to avoid some pressure by biting farther away from the pressure (i.e. legs).
