Schutzhund is a German word meaning "Protection Dog". It refers to a sport that focuses on developing and evaluating those traits in dogs that make them more useful and happier companions to their owners and everyone that comes in contact with them. While dogs of other breeds are also admitted to Schutzhund trials, this breed evaluation test was developed specifically for the German Shepherd dog. Schutzhund is intended to demonstrate the dog's intelligence and utility.

As a working trial, Schutzhund measures the dog's mental stability, endurance, structural efficiencies, ability to scent, willingness to work, courage and trainability.

We work with all breeds and all levels of handler/dog teams..!
