Here we go, I have a few......
Havoc just got his Bh and I have to admit I have been thinking about SchH for a long time. It will be a big committment as the clubs are so far away but I am seriously considering starting my 4 year old Havoc in this.
I have long held the belief that teaching my dog to bite could increase my liabilty. what if Havoc stuck his mouth on someone and it was found out that I taught him to bite on command? Has this affected any one's homeowner's policy? I don't think he would bite anyone, he is 4 plus, but "what if"? I may not even do bitework but surprisingly my hubby has encouraged me to try all phases.
Are scorebooks interchangeable? Can I use my WDA scorebook at a DVG or UScA trial or must I have a score book for each organization? Are titles recognized - or if I decided to trial in DVG is my WDA Bh accepted?
Do have to join an organization? (I probably would)
I can choose between a DVG club and a WDA club in Tulsa. If you had to chose between DVG or WDA, which is the better organization to trial with? One lady had applied for her DVG scorebook a year ago and still did not have it. My WDA scorebook was in my mailbox in 2 weeks. The DVG club here is much larger that the WDA club. Both are equally as friendly and helpful as far as I can tell. DVG club gives me a 3 month trail period so I can get acquianted and decide if it is for me or not.
What equipment do I need? I have a prong, fursaver, SchH tracking articles, SchH 1 dumbbell, gripper leashes,40 foot long line that I can knot (I think it is legal) at 30 feet.
I think I would need an agitation harness or collar. The WDA club here uses a harness. My AKC high jump does go tall enough for SchH so I can play in my yard some.
I think that is all for now, thanks in advance.
