Quick Question

I was just curious - does the helper actually hit the dog in Schutzhund with the fiberglass stick/whip thing? (Sorry, I don't know what it's called....)

Are you talking about the "brown leather padded stick"??....if so, then the answer is "yes"....in the trialing phase of Schutzhund.

They do it to test the focus of the dog if I am not mistaken.

Yes, the dog is hit with the stick.

The stick itself is flexible fiberglass, covered with foam padding and encased in leather. It slaps, but can't cause any harm.
