Schutzhund Training Evaluation
I have contacted someone today about an evaluation for my dog to see if she can do this. They are going to evaluate her, but I would like to know what they should do as part of the evaluation and what questions I can ask. I do know that during my conversation with them they said that they do tracking, bite work and obedience...the obedience comes in later and the tracking can be done every 3-4 weeks and the bite work will be done weekly. Does this sound like a good schedule? I did inform them that she has already had quite a bit of obedience training and they said that during the obedience training we in sense train them not to bite and some dogs come out of this and some don't..is that true? I have spent the last 7 months training my dog not to bite and now I am training her to do so...I know its on command but I can't help but to think that I'm confusing her. Also, what equipment will I need to purchase? What are the costs involved with that? They have invited both of us to come and watch the training which is done one on one, so no other dogs are allowed in the field when another dog is working. I do plan on making a couple visits along with the evaluation.
