 The NAWBA Journal, Fall 1990:

"Cover Dog"  Ch. Banjo v. Schwarzen Baeren, SchH3, angekoert

By Martha Sadler Hochstein

'Banjo was born in Germany on June 6. 1984.  His dam was a Belgian import who had been trained to SchH3 by his owner, Iris Haas.  Edel v Baronen became the foundation bitch for the vom schwarzen Berren kennel.   Banjo's sire was Marschel v.d. Stadt Homberg SchH3 IPO3 FH angekoert, from the famous German Bouvier breeder Willy Reisloh.  Marschel was working champion of Germany, and all of his littermates became SchH3 or IPO3.  Banjo, named for a popular German candy bar, arrived in San Francisco when he was seven weeks old - a tiny puppy in a 500 crate.  He stepped out like he owned the world, and his attitude never changed.  He loved to play with his toys and even now when someone visits he will bring out his old rubber ring to play tug-of-war.  As soon as he was old enough, we worked with the South County Schutzhund Club.  When we first visited the Club, none of the members believed that a Bouvier could actually do the protection work to obtain a Schutzhund title.  Now they expect just the opposite - that every Bouvier is extremely hard in the protection phase. 

By the time Banjo was three years old, he was an American Champion, "V" rated in conformation in Germany, SchH3 and angekoert (passed the German Bouvier Club's Recommended for Breeding Test.)  Six weeks before the 1989 DVG Nationals, Joanne Plumb began to handle Banjo.  The first trial they competed in together they won with a score of 286.  This was the first time the SV Judge Harold Hansch had given a dog of any breed a 99 in obedience.  In 1989 they placed second in the DVG Nationals with a 289 and, in 1990, third place with a 289, also a first for a Bouvier.

In November Banjo competed in the German International Trial for Bouviers and passed the Koerung for life.  He has a son and daughter with SchH titles, and soon others will be added to the list.  Although I had owned 4 Bouviers before Banjo, he was my first true Bouvier.  Now as I watch his 4 week old grandchildren I look for the little "Banjo," the one with the proud swagger, the twinkle in the eye, the self-confidence and who is the 'king of the food dish."

Una comes in season September 10.  First progesterone assay September 17 reading is 3.28 - vet also reports cell cornification. 

September 17 - the 20 year old frozen semen is sent via overnight FEDEX from Canine Cyobank in California and arrives in Minnesota at Inver Grove Animal Hospital on September 18.  Second progesterone assay September 19 reading is 5.9.  September 21 reading is 15 ~ implantation planned for September 22!  Saturday, Sept 22, it's back to Inver Grove and a successful implantation!  Here's what happens~ A mask is put over Una's face so that she breathes in a relaxant; she's put up on the operating table and her legs are secured in position, a tube is inserted to keep her breathing and she's given an anesthetic.  Her belly is shaved clean and antiseptic is scrubbed into the area where the incision will be made.  A drape is put over her body, an oval hole is cut in the drape to expose the incision area.  A 3" long incision is made and her uterus is pulled up and out of her body with a stainless steel instrument.  The vet examines the uterus to be sure there aren't any abnormalities to be seen.  In the meanwhile, another vet is taking the straws of semen out of the liquid nitrogen tank, quickly thawing them and then warming them in warm water.  The ends of the straws are snipped off, the sperm-rich semen is drained into test tubes and immediately drawn up into a syringe and, with a very fine needle, injected slowly into each horn of the uterus.  8 straws of semen were used for this implantation; 4 on each horn of the uterus (perhaps a teaspoon per side.)  A tiny fraction of semen remaining in the syringe is used to examine it for quality.

Banjo's 20 year old frozen semen thaws well, with good motility, forward movement and quantity.

October 17 ultrasound shows 2 puppies.  Will there be more??

Solo is born November 21, 2007.

So just what IS Schutzhund?

The Germans call it "hundesport", dog sport. For generations, people from Europe and North America have been drawn into this unique idea of participating in an active sport with a dog. Schutzhund offers this in a way that no other sport can. It is outdoors. It is physical. It is mental. The demands are great, but the sport also offers competition and new friendships. In short, it is what all recreational sports should first be: good exercise, fun and full of rewards.

Schutzhund started at the beginning of this century as a test for working dogs. Its initial purpose was to determine which dogs could be used for breeding and which had true working ability. The growing demand for working dogs made more sophisticated tests and training necessary. These dogs were needed for police training, border patrol, customs, military and herding. As these tests evolved, more people participated just for the sheer enjoyment of seeing if their personal dogs could be trained as effectively as these "professional dogs". Now, over sixty years after the first formal Schutzhund rules were introduced, tens of thousands of people participate in the sport each year.


Schutzhund tests three specific areas of a dog's training and behavior. The first, tracking, requires the dog to track footsteps over mixed terrain, change direction and show absolute accuracy and commitment to finding the track. It must also find dropped articles and indicate their locations to the handler. Often this is done under less than ideal circumstances with difficult cover, bad weather conditions and an aged track. Many find tracking to be the most satisfying experience in training, when only the handler and dog are working together. It is certainly the most peaceful part of Schutzhund.


The second phase is obedience. Those who are familiar with AKC obedience will feel more comfortable in this area, as many of the exercises are similar to those in Open and Utility. There is heeling, both on and off lead. The sit, down and stand are also done, except when the dog is moving. But Schutzhund applies its own style to this work. Instead of a forty foot ring, the handler and dog work on a soccer sized trial field. Some exercises require the dog to work under the noise of a firing gun. In addition to the normal dumbbell retrieval, the dog must retrieve over a one meter jump and a six foot wall. Down stays and a long send away conclude the test.

The final test is the most misunderstood by the general public. This is protection. The most important point to understand when watching a protection routine, is the relationship between dog and handler. The dog must never bite the trial helper, unless either the dog or the handler is attacked. Then it must attack fully and without hesitation. But here the real difference becomes apparent. The dog must stop biting on the command of the handler and guard the trial helper without further aggression. Often people confuse Schutzhund protection training with police dog or personal protection work. Only the Schutzhund dog is capable of the feats of never being aggressive except under those specific situations it is trained to face, and even then it must always be under the absolute control of the handler.


The above tests are difficult enough, but to make it even more demanding, they all happen in one day during competitions that are held all over the country. These trials are held by local clubs or in regional and national championships. Each dog is judged by a complex point system that then determines the winner of the trial.

When a dog successfully completes the first trial, it is awarded a title of Schutzhund I. It can then progress to Schutzhund II and, the ultimate, Schutzhund III. Each level makes ever greater demands on the dog and training in all three areas. Any Schutzhunder will tell you that a high scoring Schutzhund III dog is the ultimate working dog: one in a thousand of all working dogs.

In addition to the Schutzhund I, II and III titles, other titles in advanced tracking, temperament tests, police training and agility work are awarded.

Today, Schutzhund is more than the small group that started in Germany so long ago. Its organizations have several hundred thousand members, scattered across Europe, North America and several other continents.
