Great Point, 4 pack. Yes indeed, there are Surprise scenarios at PSA tests. I can see the SCHh sports folks now, freaking out. What! No rehearsed routine? You mean, ....your gonna do what?!
I didnt mean to run anyone off, but I dislike unwarranted criticism or misinformed posts about "little jugs with pebbles" PSA is extrememly challenging for a dog & Handler. Im addicted, I admit. Been at it little over 10 months & enjoy it more every outing. Good dogs & Good folks. I wont knock any dog sports, including SCHh, Ring or otherwise, but likewise hate to see barbs, thrown at the sport Im involved in.
I do think many working GSDs could do well, not so sure at the advanced PSA 2/3 titles, due to the game, its so fast, response time demanded is so quick. Id like to see more GSDs. We only have one & it is working well.. As a general rule..PSA Tends maybe to favor Mals & Dutchies as is at the higher levels, but any solid working dog can compete & is very welcomed..It is not exclusive in any way, shape or form.
Im surprised more SCHh folks dont cross train in it. The scenarios are excellent.
