new to the gsd/want to see Sieger/CA

I'm not new to dogs at all but am new to the GSD (bought a black sable from an average breeder). I also became a member of my local WDA ScH club with a rescue Mal - long story.

but i'm very interested in learning about non _AKC stuff like ScH and am planning on going to the Sieger show in Pomona this weekend (7th) just to learn about that aspect of the GSD.

I have heard about how bad the protection part is compared to the ScH trials.

Anyway, can anyone tell me what to look for at the Sieger show and maybe help me understand what i'm seeing. I know that these are show and not working line dogs doing a lighter-weight protection. That's about all i know.

I don't do SchH so I don't know - but I bet you might see some board members there.

Re: new to the gsd/want to see Sieger/CA

It's not really a "lighter weight" protection than working line dogs - working line dogs in the show or doing Koerungs do the same thing - it's a protection/bitework/courage test for the show, so you are not seeing a *real* protection routine like you would in a trial (regardless of the dog or line).

This is a loaded topic, so I'll just say that if you are mainly interested in Schutzhund, I would stick with your club and going to trials. The standard for passing the performance test at the Sieger Shows is very, very low.

thanks L - yeh, i know it's a loaded topic - even as a rookie, i can tell that already - LOL

It's all so interesting to me - such a huge subculture built around this one breed! Now i love the gsd! I'll never be without one.

If you have to pay, they'd just ask for it at the show. You don't need tickets ahead of time. I've never had to pay, but of the Sieger Shows I've been to, either my dog was entered or I was with a vendor.

I haven't had to pay as a spectator at the Sieger show, but the one I went to was at Purina Farms and they didn't have to pay for the venue.

Re: new to the gsd/want to see Sieger/CA

I think the USA Sieger Show in Chicago had sort of blocked off everything so you were supposed to pay to watch, but I'm not sure how much it was. I know that you didn't need a "ticket" or anything in advance. We went back for the bitework with my in-laws and didn't pay at all, though I heard rumors that they wanted to charge. I don't think you had to pay at all for NASS 2008. Most of the venues are so wide open it's impossible to enforce.

I went to the one in San Jose, California, and there was an entry fee, but I don't remember how much it was. Maybe $10?
