|My young dog earned his BH this past weekend only about an hour after also completing his AD (and while we were waiting for papers/scorebooks he did protection for fun!). I love this dog, he's so much fun.|
Hiding for the long down, praying my dog stays down! (he did, didn't move an inch)
Me nervous, dog just fine!
Laggy group heeling.
Group sits were good.
Starting the out of motion exercises.
This pic is kinda cool, the dog looks huge but it's the sit out of motion. The photographer moved off to the side to get us both in the shot.
I always get nervous, even for a BH, so I must look down when I'm concentrating.
Getting crowded for the temperament test (no problems, if anything this dog is too friendly).
Traffic test, also not a problem since we're city dwellers. My dogs see people, dogs, bikes, cars, any any number of other wheeled apparatus on a daily basis.
Finishing our ADs that morning (I handled my show line and a friend handled my young working line).
Two ADs and a BH, not bad for one morning!

|Thanks everyone! Yeah it was a bit of work getting two dogs ready for an AD (getting their paws conditioned, since they both do flyball and already have problems with cracked or tearing pads) and training for the BH. Plus we are showing, competing, or trialing 2-3 weekends a month March - June. Tomorrow I'm showing the show line and starting the working line in lure coursing for his CA legs. Then a short break, then another Schutzhund trial AND a flyball tournament the same weekend (both doing both).|

You sound like you must be single. LOL. My wife would never let me have that many dogs and spend that much time with them.

|LOL, nope married 6 years. I do dogs, my husband does other sports (soccer, tennis, basketball, and softball).|

|"Hiding for the long down" ????|
The long down is supposed to be with your back towards the dog but in sight for the BH, IPO I
Unless that's one of the new IPO rules changes?
Who told you to hide behind the blind? What are the blinds made of? I can't tell if they're wooden panels or some kind of horizonal material. Congrats on the AD and BH :-)

|I don't know, they have a flag and circle for males and females and an x on the other side of the blind for the handler so that's what I did, I'm not in the habit of questioning the judge *shrug* Their blinds are wooden. I'm pretty sure I was also instructed to go on the other side of the blind (much farther away) for my other dog's SchH1 (different club, different judge). Either way a down is a down, hidden or in sight.|
