K9 Schutzhund Training: A Manual for Tracking, Obedience and Protection
Professional Schutzhund trainers and instructors Resi Gerritsen and Ruud Haak bring their years of knowledge and experience together in this book, K9 Schutzhund Training. Appropriate for training dogs for both protection work and for international sport dog certification and competition, this is designed to be an especially practical training method.
Founded on the idea that effective training can only happen when a good bond and good communication exist between handler and dog, this method allows individual handler-dog teams to progress at their own speed. Different breeds and individual dogs may require different lengths of time and repetition to effectively learn to perform the exercises contained in this book. While many trainers claim a dog can be trained to perform to this level in only a few weeks, the authors show that effective, long-lasting results can only be achieved with time and patience. The three sections of this book focus on tracking, obedience and protection.
