If not a GSD, what breed for SchH?

This is just a what if thread......

I am a GSD guy to the bone....but I have been waiting for a working line pup for a really long time, so I need something to think about and occupy my puppy anticipation from now until January 2011!

So under the category of daydreaming.....if you were going to work anything other than a GSD in SchH, what would it be?

The AWDF site is a good place to daydream on this topic. After some consideration, for me, the Giant Schnauzer. Good size not to big/small, and a serious dog. From an aesthetics perspective, and I am not typically a fan of croping (ears/tail), I would crop even in the face of balance consideration.

No GSD, but a Giant Schnauzer would be interesting to me....what would be your second choice breed for SchH?

To make the discussion interesting: you can't say Malinois

I would get a big mean fluffy Bouvier!

I might do a dobe. Seen a few I thought were gorgeous, and had a
shepherd/dobe mix who was a great dog for 12 years. He was my first
dog, has been gone 25 years and I still miss him.

There was a Schnauzer in the club I started SchH in, he was cool, but
I like being able to see the eyes, something not always visible with them or Bouviers.

Have seen a couple of Mal pups I would have taken home if I could have too.

So many dogs, so little time.

If not a GSD I can't see myself doing SchH at all. But if all the GSDs disappeared from the planet, I might consider a Dutchie. I just cannot every, ever see myself owning a Mal, I don't care how successful they can be.

I like Dobes, and that might be my first choice, except finding one with the temperament for this sort of work anymore would be very difficult.

A Hovawart could be interesting too. I like the look of the black/tans, but might have go get a yellow just for the fun of having something everyone would assume is a Golden Retriever that doesn't act in any way, shape or form like a Golden.

Or I might have to pick something completely off the wall that one would never think of as a SchH dog, like that Boerboel, just to try it.

If not a Mal then a Dutchie, Heeler, or pit bull. I don't like Rotts, Dobes, or dogs with any sort of curly or wavy hair.

Chris I've seen a Boerboel doing SchH! The dog was aggressive and big but it seemed to tire quickly especially barking in the blind.

I am not sure I would do SchH anymore if I could not train and work a GSD. My first dog to title in OB was a Dobe, but good ones are so darn hard to find that they are like that proverbial needle in a haystack. I like watching many of the other breeds, but, I don't know, they don't interest me at all.

I'd love to get a Rottweiler (a good one!) and title it.

Maybe some day?

I'd love to see Samba's Catahoula working!
