Re: If you don't plan to compete, is schutzhund.......
If it is a good club with people who know dogs, you will benefit from joining and learning. You and your dog can benefit no matter where you are starting from. We had people with rescues who would do well to get a BH. The dogs became much better overall. The handlers became better owners and were more prepared for their next dog.
If the people are good and there is knowledge to be gained, go for it! You will see lots of different dogs, drives, temperaments and learn what makes a dog sound and workable. So much fun if you find a good fit!
