Schutzhund in Germany 1936

Came across this video on Youtube & thought it was interesting. I have no idea of the accuracy of the date.

I've seen this before. I wonder what level these dogs were. Horrible grips and coming off the sleeve? Either this was a "hobby" club, or the breed or training has come a long way.

Haha that's cool. History is always fascinating to me.

What the heck is that fake doggy on a plank?? Dragged with a leash! Lol
What are those gun shots for? In the line-up. What were the dogs suppose to be doing or not suppose to be doing? That is part of this sport?
And how do they get up the high walls...doesn't hurt when they come down...the impact or pressure when they hit the ground...

That's neat anyway to see that back then. Those were my Opa's times. Geez that is a long time ago.

Had the same questions here. Did understand the beer at the end of the day part though! : )

My friend who comes from there, and was there during WWII and after, told me that was what it was like, right down to going to the beer garden afterwards. I thought the dogs looked great, people were having a good time, and I like that there were women in the group as well.

Oh no Cindy, haven't you read on this forum a million times how the dogs of yesteryear and their training were so much than the dogs of today? Can't you see that? Surely your eyes are telling you fibs.

My Opa too, who participated in SchH at that time....

They really enjoyed the dogs and the camraderie.

My other Opa was into the horses and belonged to a club. He participated in jumping competitions.

They would have parties and really fun time with neighbors and friends who also belonged to the clubs.

We're so darn serious so SUPER competitive that I think it takes the fun out of many things now-a-days, or so it seems.

Its crazy how very similar, yet so much more organized Schutzhund has become since those days. Such a fun watch.

Then it always leaves me wondering. With the skill of trainers today, could we go back in time and make those dogs (our dogs ancestors) look as good in the phases as we do our own dogs? Or since they were so new to the breed, is that just what those dogs were like back then?

Have we improved the breed since 1936? Have we improved the confidence, stamina, drives and working ability since then?

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear."
