Why I love Schutzhund
I love schutzhund because it tests so many components of the dogs temperament. You have hunt drive, defense, fight, prey, usually to compete ball drive and food are required for training, pack drive, and tracking, working independently. Obedience shows harmony. Protection shows tenacity and where genetics and training are married. Personally, I believe no higher bond comes to fruition between man and dog than schutzhund.
