Re: Should I consider Schutzhund?
That is absolutely ridiculous. I have zero desire to EVER breed a single dog I ever own, male or female, and I love doing schutzhund. If more people took this approach rather than believing every titled dog should be bred, the breed would be much better off.
Additionally, you will not begin any real training with your new puppy for quite some time so your male is a perfect dog to learn with. The things you learn with him will prove to be invaluable with your "real" dog.
