Re: What do they all do at an eval?

Wow, half Czech lines and half High-Lines!!! What an intersting pairing - What was your breeder trying to achieve with this breeding? Not criticizing, just feel that this is new uncharted territory and curious about the rational.

But to answer you questions - they won't do anything scary! When evaluation a puppy for Schutzhund potential, the evaluator will be looking at overhall temperament and drive. They will see how your pup reacts when in a new situation, around new people. Does he show curiosity and interest in his environment, or does he hang back and stays close to mommy/daddy for security?

They will play a bit with him, tease him with a rag or a tug, see if he wants to play, chase, bite, tug. If evaluating an older dog, they might put just a tad of pressure on him (act a bit threatening) to see how the dog reacts. But they won't on a young puppy, they'll be mostly looking for his drive levels and confidence level.

An experienced trainer can tell a lot about your pup just by watching him walk onto the field.

So just relax and have fun, and your pup will have fun too! Good luck!

Re: What do they all do at an eval?

We also don't do anything scary. We want to see how the dog is around people and on the strange field. Is he social, aloof, nervous, fearful, dog aggressive, etc. How does he interact with his handler? Then we see if he has drive for toys and/or food. We will see if he has any interest in chasing a rag and, if old enough, do a little suspicion work. That is about it. Mostly we talk to the handler because you too will be getting evaluated.
