The BH is open to all breeds of dogs and mixed breeds, provided the dog has an identifying ear tattoo or is micro chipped for positive identification.

As a handler you have act and respond so differently to best utilize the dog’s personality, but that’s how different dogs make a person a better handler. Belle did a wonderful job and she gave me something more. Trials have always made me nervous and have not been a pleasant experience, but thanks to Belle I intend to become more active in schutzhund and actually work toward competing at larger trials.
