Hi all, new here. I have a young adult shepherd and have always thought Schutzhund sport looked like something I'd like to do, and my new dog seems to have all the drives and would benefit mentally from the structure of this kind of training. I contacted a club near me to find out more and was told that this sport is not for "fun" and is very demanding and time consuming and that I should try regular obedience instead. That's all she said. I know that any real training is demanding and time consuming. But does anyone on here just do it for fun with their dogs because their dogs might be good at it or is there always a larger goal?
