Sure wish we had something like ASR in our area. 4 Schutzhund clubs. Only one worth going to :D :D . My GSD wouldn't be as fast or quick as the Mals, but he sure has a nice attitude about biting. :lol: :wink:

The sport is slowly spreading. There is only now a group forming within 5 hours of me with Duhon's move to southern NC. I train primarily alone anyway and have been driving from VA to GA and Fla for trials. It's still definitly hugging the coast at this point, though. As people see what an awesome sport it is, it will continue to grow!

Can ya make it spread faster? I live in St. Louis and I'm 60yrs old. :lol: :lol: :lol:
Actually, I did pm with Chris once about getting interest here. I guess I'm just not ready for any new adventures. I'm retired and getting reeealy lazy. :oops: :lol: :lol: :wink:

LOL!!!
Well, the fastest way to spread it would be to buy yourself a rule book and a CD from a trial, get a group together and start training! Perhaps others are as frustrated with the mediocre Schutzhund groups in the area as well? Granted, the training as from an entirely different mentality and it might be hard-pressed to convince you'r helpers to change their perspective, but maybe worth a shot?

Yea but Bob it ain´t about being fast or quick. ASR is about bitework, control and obedience. If your dog can do all three then he can do ASR. There are plenty of fast dogs than can´t do ASR.

Well, we've got the bitework, control and obedience. Now all we need is exposure. :lol: :wink:

Patric, I would love to try ASR, but my bite training is all Schutzhund and I realize I'd be way out of my comfort zone without lots of additional training for me AND my dog. I think our club puts a lot of effort into going beyond the standard Schutzhund exercises, but still not with all the variables as ASR.
I could see my guy on a bite suit for the first time. "I wish this guy would get those big legs out of my way so I can bite his arm". :lol: :lol:
Course he does have a really nice civil side to him, so I have no idea how he'd react to a suit. :-k
