    Umm that might be the same guy who used to use this forum. If so he beat his dogs with sticks and then tried to claim it was the same to them as hitting them with pillow s. Idk if it's him or not.

    OMG that is sick... He needs to be beat with a stick and then tell us it felt like being hit with a pillow . Thats why I prefer animals to humans sometimes.. His poor dogs hopefully someone called Animal Control on him..

    I will try when I'm on my computer.
    Schutzhund is protection training. Usually useing German shepherds, Rotweilers, And other such breeds. I want to say it was started in Germany to decide what German shepherds to breed, but don't quote me on that lol

    Schutzhund is a German based training for protection and guard dogs -- specifically used for 'working breeds'. I use to work at a facility that offered the classes on Sunday's and I watched them from time to time.... in MY opinion, it is not meant for a bulldog. It is meant for GSD, Cane Corsos, Pitbulls, American Bulldogs, Rotties, etc -- dogs that need a 'job' or are bred to serve. Our Bulldog -- tend not to fit those categories.

    Part of the training involves tracking/hiking in all types of weather and conditions which Bullies do not do well in.

    Please do A LOT of research before you decide this is something to do with a Bulldog -- if you do have a strong interest maybe look into a breed to take to the classes or check with a trainer of Schutzhund to see if you can be a handler.

    I found video of that on youtube, not sure about everyone else but I would never even think of putting a bully through that kind of hip and joint strain. They are so prone to issues why exacerbate it with that kind of behavior.

    I thought about it, but just fleetingly. One of those things you think would be cool to do, but know realistically it would never happen lol I think its amazing to watch, and I admire the dedication and the bond of trust between the dog and handler. One thing I love about Bulldogs is their lack of energy. I have my spurts, but Im mainly a home body lol
