Tom Riche and Lucero's Jaws of Working Class K-9
Re: "We plan to take them as far as they will go.."
I've thought about putting a basic title on a dog (PDC or PSA 1) or going into whatever Darryl Richey is doing these days (he's a great guy and not that far from me), just for a third party evaluation. The thing is, we always just had a PP club that got together and set up scenarios, worked dogs and had a great lunch and hung out together...not just owners of dogs from our kennel but also really great friends we had known for years with other dogs. It's where I saw my first great Czech GSD (though I had been to trials in a couple of sports) and where I saw my first great Dutch Shepherd (Riker's sire). The camraderie was great among us, we all were on the same side as far as looking forward to seeing everyone's dogs improve...enjoying that improvement and the fact that it wasn't a competition. I think that's more what I like, but if I had the chance to do Sch with a great trainer I'd probably try it.
