Getting Bullet's Schutzhund 3 has been one of the hardest things I've done. This trial was an experience and a half, filled with crashes, pouring blood, tears, prayers and profanities, all orchestrated by one mother of a storm.
The trial was well run, the judges, decoys and Saugeen members were amazing. Congratulations to all who entered.
One of the highlights for me was when Judge Rüdiger Mai commented, more than once, on how nice of a Schnauzer Bullet is. It's always nice to hear compliments on your dog. Bullet is something all right, I love him and doubt I'll ever be lucky enough have another one like him. We've had a lot of help along the way and I'm thankful for all my friends, training directors and decoys.
I wish I had video of his performances, especially of his protection routine. Some people did take pictures and I can't wait to see those and post them here if they let me. I will also write down what happened in each phase.
The personal pressure I've put on myself to get this title is now gone. We got it in Bullet style, lol!
The big question is "Now What?"
