Re: If you don't plan to compete, is schutzhund...

As far as your concern for tracking competing with other venues... I find this not to be the case

I tend to do a little of everything, AKC obedience competition, Rally, & have just ventured into Agility & AKC Tracking with my new dogs. Have done SchH in the past and will again with these new gals.

Both of my gals seem to LOVE tracking. Little Moxie is a tracking fiend! New addition, Hella, is also seeming to have a knack for the track. This does not stop or interfere with anything else we are doing (obedience, rally, agility, etc).

Dogs are very situational. They will see, oh big field, blinds = SchH. Big field lots of obstacles = Agility. Ring gates = Obed/Rally. Big field and a flag while wearing harness = Tracking.

Give it all a try! The dogs love it and you may find which you really love while playing at everything for a little while
