How to evaluate a young puppy for Schutzhund
We just got a young GSD puppy just 10 weeks old now. He has a drive like I haven't seen before. I don't see any recent IPO or titles in his pedigree. I would have thought he was more from pet stock.
however he is so intent...always focused on us and will hold a tug for as long as we give any resistance. He has nerves of steel....I have yet to see anything that scares him....vacuum, drill, leaf blower, gun, lawn mower. he just walks up...investigates and settles down or looks to us for instruction.
I have tried looking to see what makes for a good IPO/Schutzhund candidate, and when to start training, but I am not finding much.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
