The level of control that is experienced in the Belgian Ring is extraordinary. If we Americans think that Schutzhund has a few distractions and areas to loose control, we have not seen anything compared to the Belgian Ring.
The competitors never know what the bite work events are going to be like until the day of the championship. The judges have a great deal of leeway in determining what the dogs will face at each event. The only way to train for this kind of competition is to make sure you have a dog with sound nerves and a clear head.
As in Schutzhund, the dogs in the Belgian Ring are scored on the quality of the grip. This genetic fact is very important in Belgium and is reflected in the quality of dogs in the Belgian NBVK.
The image quality of this streaming video is nowhere near the quality it was when it was originally filmed. It is also nowhere near the quality of our current Leerburg training DVDs.
Many of the older dog shows and competitions were not encoded into a computer format until the video tapes were 20 to 25 years old. Over the years, the image quality of video tape deteriorates. These older dog shows are being offered for their historical significance. That's why we are streaming videos for the current price that originally sold for up to $100.00.
These videos are no longer offered on DVDs.
