    I'm familiar with schutzund, I've seen a few shows on it. How does one get into something like that? How much training does it take to do something like that. I always thought that stuff was very interesting and impressive.

    Yes, we have her. Kona is almost 7 months old, with very high prey drive. A little handler sensitive, which is a bandog trait but is getting better on leash. We have to do more socialization with her as we got her at 5 months old. She should be a good candidate for bite work down the line. She has shown no handler aggression or towards our other pets thus far. Mr. Lucero who we got her from, has excellent dogs, stable temperament, high drive, and good family companions. She is very young and has a long way to go. This was taken 2 weeks ago, and she has gotten bigger since then.

    I have heard about Donovan K9...but a bit of a far drive. There are a LOT of psa events in/around chicagoland. so we get to do that often. My club trains for both Ring and PSA...there are a lot of similarities so it works out nice. I gave up schH for the faster more intense pace of ring and psa. But to start anything you find a GOOD CLUB and people that know what they are doing!!

    Hey AB_goddess.

    I was from Chicago, where about do you live? I might be able to help you find a lot of sports in your area. Who do you train with. I can send you to the best trainer in IL. He is ranked 4 in the nation in his class of sports. Where did you get your dog from btw? I may be able to send you to my cusion, he has AB dogs and my be able to add you. All his dog train for sport and work. I would be happy to get you into contact with him.


    Dave.
