no.....just make sure you let your pup maintain independence yet keep the focus and engagement the most important thing.

I don't see why it would, there's obedience in schutzhund. Are you referring specifically to bitework? There's a lot of obedience even in bitework. There are also things you can do with your puppy to build foundation for bitework, like tug/rag playing etc.

Have you thought about going to a schutzhund club? Some training directors are also dog trainers. The TD of my club aslo teaches "pet" obedience. Most my club goes to her pet obedience classes as well as schutzhund and she just teaches us differently.

Depends on the class and how they teach obedience. Most pet people don't care how their dogs sit, for example, so the class may not teach you how to teach a correct square butt under the dog sit. Some behaviors taught early and incorrectly can be difficult to fix later (like bad sits).

Yes this. I had already taught sit, stay, and down. When I started schH I had to start all over. Lucky for me my dog was only 3 months old so it was an easy transition.
