A New Sport For Maggie?

Here is a dog sport that we haven't tried.  I think that Maggie would love this:

It is a Bernese participating in the sport of Schutzhund.  I didn't know that Bernese were used as Schutzhund dogs and  I don't know if Maggie and Bosley would be very good protection dogs.  Maggie would, however, love to chase someone and be allowed to bite at the bite sleeve.  She also loves to bark, so when combine all of those things, she would love it!  She also would want to have some cuddles from the "bad" person after she was done chasing and biting him.


  1. oh my god! that is the coolest thing ever!!!! I've never seen a berner do that before. maggie would totally love it.... biting, and barking!!!!! fun!

  2. I had never seen a Bernese do the Schutzhund either. I bet Maggie and Bosley would love it!

    Very Cool!

    I hope Maggie is getting better every day!


  3. wow, impressive, that Berner would give any shepherd a run for it's money!

  4. Wow! Never seen a Bernese doing Schutzhund before. I think it'll be very shocking to see a Golden doing it too! The Bernese is just too fluffy & sweet looking for Schutzhund really. It just doesn't have the fierce scawie look like the Rotties or Dobbies.
