History of the AD

I understand what the AD is, having done it with Izzy. I know that it is required for Breed Survey, and that it is to test the endurance, etc. However I was asked today by my flyball team the history of the test and I had no answer for them. When did they start doing it, how did they come up with the distance? Anybody know?

Re: History of the AD

I think I read somewhere in the past that it started in the 1990's but I could be wrong. I am interested in hearing about it's history too. Sounds/Looks interesting....

Re: History of the AD

Don't know how or when it came about, but when we did our AD, the judge, who was originally from Gemany and had a life-long involvement with Schutzhund, explained that when herding, a GSD easily covers, at a steady trot, 40 to 60 kms a day running the border of those huge flocks, and the AD (20 kms) was designed to ensure that this work ethic and focused endurance is maintained in the breed.

Re: History of the AD

A dog with a HGH title does not have to do a AD for Breed Survey.

I never said it did, obviously a dog with an HGH has more than proven itself.

Re: History of the AD

I will ask next week the training director of my club and see what he says is the history of the AD. I will post back then.

Re: History of the AD

Silly question..but how is the AD carried out? Is the dog kept running on its own or..?

Re: History of the AD

Handler rides a bike and the dog trots alongside. There are 2 breaks of about 20 minutes each if I remember right. Paw pads etc are checked and dogs are allowed to catch their breath during the breaks.
