Erin, I have a question for you....I'm a DVG Southeast member (b/c MD is in the Southeast region)...does that mean I can't do the BH (that's all I'm trying for with my dogs).

Hey Katrina,

Our club is based in MD/VA and we're in the KG North . . . I noticed that the club Chuck is part of is in the KG South, which I thought was odd since they are also MD/VA . . . but I do know that you have to be a member of the KG North to trial in this particular trial, so you aren't eligible for this one.

There is a DVG trial in early November in our area that you could trial at, though, and I really like the judge for this one, she came and trained with us a bit in the spring after our spring trial:

Very cool! Thank you! And you said I can use my USA Schutzhund book for DVG? Like I said, I just want to go for the BH with Cy and Nisha...although Greg said we should go ahead and try to teach Cy to run blinds before then, and go for a SchA - if it's being offered...we already know Cy will do the "courage test" and the "attack on handler" and he'll go around something to look for someone, but he'll come back to me (or at least try to - I may be able to fudge it and keep him going as a directional)...

They guard once they get into the blind, right?

yes, you can use your USA scorebook in a DVG trial . . .

per the DVG America web site:

B2. Which scorebooks are acceptable in a DVG trial?


Any scorebook from a recognized organization. In LV America, that includes scorebooks from USA, any AWDF member organization, ATTIBOX member clubs, and the GSDCA-WDA. If you import a dog and it comes with, for example, an ADRK scorebook, unless you are a member of ADRK, that scorebook is invalid with which to enter a trial. You must send a copy of the scorebook to the DVG office with a scorebook application and receive back a DVG scorebook, which will state that whatever titles the dog holds are on record in the office. As a DVG member, you have to have a DVG scorebook, anyway.


not sure if they're gonna offer the SCH A at the DC club trial or not, but it's worth asking them. it's possible that they will if they know someone is interested in it.

the blind running for the beginning stages of SCH shouldn't be too difficult for you to teach--generally, you teach the dog to go "revier" and point to the dummy blind, then you call the dog to come back to you, and as he approaches, you point him to "revier" in the live blind, where he'll find the decoy. then he has to bark and hold the decoy there till you arrive. ideally, he shouldn't be dirty in the blind (harrassing or "molesting" the decoy) cuz that'll lose you points. not sure if PSA trains to bite a suit or sleeve, but it's probably good for you to know that if he actually bites anywhere but the sleeve, they'll disqualify . . . once in the blind, the dog barks and holds for about 30 seconds, then you approach and call the dog into heel, allow the helper do exit the blind unmolested by the dog, and then there's a scenario in which the decoy attempts to "escape," and the dog has to stop him independently (no commands, i'm pretty sure, the dog is supposed to know what to do here) in 20 paces or less.

i think that's it for blind work on the SCH I . . . the rest is out on the field.

Hmmmm...he'll probably run the blinds fairly easy....it's basically a redirect....for the bark and hold...what do I do if he doesn't bark? Cy was taught a silent guard....he's actually very clean in a sleeve, so I don't worry about that....

My only worry on the escape is that Cy is training for the Level 3's in PSA...where you need a very high level of control. We have been working very hard for him to realize that he MUST wait for a command from me...
