Quick Question About Bite

Are there restrictions on competing in schutzhund for a dog with an overbite?

Thanks!

Re: Quick Question About Bite

Good to hear! It's still a bit too early to tell, but of course I'm overly paranoid! Now I don't have to fret about it... (Though I STILL want it to correct itself!!!)

Thanks!

Re: Quick Question About Bite

Don't fret! My boy had one too and it's corrected itself. He has also been doing SchH. I was nervous about it but in recent shows it has never come up in critique (and they do check the teeth and bite), the tooth-particular judge didn't say anything and the next judge said he has "an impressive head". Phew! Even if a little bit remains he can still train and compete. I'm not sure how it would affect his biting but they won't disqualify him simply for having the overbite.

Boxers are great in Schutzhund, if they can I'm sure your pup can

Re: Quick Question About Bite

i had a dog for a while that i was fostering from a county police department that had totally broke off all of his teeth....anyway to make a long story short he had an over bite also but with an over bite and not teeth, he had one [heck] of a hard bite.
