I was soooo scared my first day too.. lol.. more so than my first day of University!

I was scared I would be judged, that Stark would be judged and that I would do something wrong in my handling (even just sitting there), but everyone was very welcoming, excited to see what Stark could do, they were just fun people to be around.

I say, go, have fun and relax!

It is SOOOOO much fun and SOOOO addicting once you get started!

I was nervous too. I hate being in new situations when I don't know what to expect. But, everyone made me feel at home right away and were great about answering questions.

No one is going to expect your dog to act perfect especially being brand new and in a new place.

Just relax and be yourself. I am sure you and Shilo will have a great time. If you set up the appointment with someone, just ask them if your dad can come too. I can't imagine that they would have a problem with that, but they will probably want to know in advance.

Yes, I do Schutzhund. Your dog needs to be crated in your car till it is time for her evaluation, so don't worry about it. Schutzhund people don't want dogs intereacting and dogs friendly towards people is always desired.

I think maybe try one thing at a time.

If you are visiting a club, they should be able to evaluate Shilo and tell you if she is suited for SchH. They will probably have the helper work with her a bit and evaluate her drives.

Working ability has very little to do with her being "loving". A lot of people have that misconception, I did too. Most GSDs who train for SchH are very loving with their handlers and other family members and polite with strangers. I think people just tend to equate biting with an unbalanced dog, the opposite is true in this case.
