MA: New England Schutzhund championships

Discussion in 'Special Sessions, Events, and Tour Announcements' started by BostonRott, Aug 25, 2008.

  1. So here's something different: the regional championships of the working dogs in New England. Schutzhund is German for 'protection dog.' The sport involves 3 phases: tracking, obedience, and protection work. The obedience performed is just amazing, and the protection work will knock your socks off.

    The lower level dogs will trial on Saturday, the 'big guns' on Sunday (the SchH3 dogs).

    Being that I used to compete in this sport, these guys are near and dear to my heart. There's even a Rottweiler entered. :tongue:
