Schutzhund (from the German “protection dog”) is a sport for dogs, specifically for German shepherds, born in Germany in 1900. The purpose of this sport is to measure the dog’s courage and protective capacity. The first step of the training is to learn the three phases of this sport.

“Successfully following certain types of odor, obedience to its trainer and then training in protection,” explains Rebecca Letson, who works at a Schutzengel dog training club.

Rebecca Lutsen has been involved in the sport for over 20 years and works with the Schutzengel Working Dog Club, which trains dogs of all experience levels.

“Over time, the sport has become a points competition; in fact, there are competitions in which trainers compete with their dogs and the judges have the task of observing and evaluating their abilities; on these observations, the values and performance ratings of the dogs in the competition will be based,” Letson explained.

Yoda, a 2-year-old German shepherd, has been training his whole life. “He has always been a good dog,” said Melody Uhrinec, Yoda’s trainer.

Shrine has been training her four-legged friend for some time now; she thinks that the dog is really on the right track to take part in competitions. “Oh, I love him, he’s wonderful, he’s a really good dog, I love to see him work, I love to follow him and I love to see his nose ready to recognize all the smells.”

Schutzhund is a sport that can take you and your best friend all over the world.
