Schutzhund the way it was intended to be

Read this on a different forum. If true and successful this is definitely a step in the right direction:

Girard Bradshaw, co-founder, executive director and director of judging for the Protection Sports Association (PSA) who is also the founding director of the National Tactical Police Dog Administration (NTPDA) along with the 2015 WUSV World Champion, Debra Zappia and several other like minded individuals, have all teamed up and created a new all breed working organization in North America. This organization is simply called, “Schutzhund” and will be implemented shortly with an intended outcome of returning Schutzhund back to its original roots along with some modifications necessary for an evolving platform. Please note,
the “Schutzhund” clubs and the suit sport clubs will be separate.
In the very near future, a lot of information will be disseminated. Social Media based platforms will be one means of communication for providing updates. Also, once finalized, we will post the information regarding an upcoming informational seminar that will explain in detail everything that encompasses this new organization.

Schutzhund Mission Statement:

To restore and maintain Schutzhund as a relevant breed suitability test for working dogs in America. Schutzhund will test the ability of the dog to withstand stress and continue to function in difficult situations. We will continue to evolve, always cognizant of the fact, that the balance among the three phases of the test is what makes it so difficult, yet so important. The entire premise of the test is to determine the best dogs suitable for law enforcement, the military and for serving the needs of humanity. With the information gained through the rigorous trials of scent work, obedience and protection work: police officers, individuals and organizations in disaster work, as well as our armed forces, will be able to choose canines suitable to execute the work of serving. Down the Road: Registration and Stud Books will be developed for individual breeds

Sounds like a good plan. Dog people are not usually the best at human relationships, so that's always the challenge.

I wonder why they don't just try to create a sub set of PSA for that purpose. Of course, I've never been to a PSA trial.

Think they'll bring the scaling wall back?

From old pictures I've seen, the dogs have certainly lost a lot of the agility they once had:

No matter how many organizations are started....their membership, clubs and reach can only go as far as how many decoys/helper-trainers are available....every.single.club. in every organization is based on a strong helper/trainer and wtih few exceptions, these are men doing decoy work. Without a decoy, you have a tracking and ob group.....unless you do all your bitework training with a ball in the blind.

DVG has 20?25? clubs in the US, GSDCA has maybe 30-40 (in it's heyday, WDA had 50-60 when the Johannes Amendment started the war) and USCA has 250-300.....at one point, many people were members of 2 or even all 3 of the organizations and clubs had dual affiliations. There may be a few even now that are doubling with DVG and USCA. I don't think there are more than 2 dozen each of Mondio/Ring/PSA - I looked them up a few times, but nothing anywhere within reasonable distance.

It will take a cataclysmic event to take people/clubs away from USCA in any significant number.

JMHO

I don't think they're looking to take anyone away from their current organization or replace one. At least that's my understanding.
