   Schutzhund trial (test) is where "a dog" is trained in tracking, obedience and [simulated] protection, in preparation to be tested at a dog trial by a qualified dog judge.  When the dog's performance passes in all three phases, the dog receives a SchH (Schutzhund) title.  This title is written behind the dog's registered name, similar as with human's BA or Phd, etc..
   Schutzhund was originally designed around 1900, as a working dog breeder tool in testing the dog's working ability.  The functions of the Schutzhund phases is to test the  dog: interest/drive to work, physical structural capacity to work, mental,  temperament capacity to work and many other features.  Today, Schutzhund not only attempts to fulfill it's original function but also function as a "sport" for dog owner's to train and compete in with their dog.  As with all sports, that intertwine humans and animals, there people who specialize in specific part or parts and others that trade in it.  Similar to most sports, the majority of participants in the sport of Schutzhund are the average individual who has a love for dogs and the dog they train, is also their household pet.
   Schutzhund originated in Germany and though the word Schutzhund in the German language means "protection dog", protection work is only a third (1/3) of the dog's work it is test on during a Schutzhund trial.  Therefore as of January 1, 2004 these dog events name is being changed from Schutzhund to "VERSATILITY TEST FOR WORKING DOGS" or "VPG", which stands for "Vielseitigkeitsprüfung für Gebrauchshunde" in the German language.

   Dogs that have attained a SchH/ VPG title, are ideal for various types of service work, since the dog has been tested in simulated functions that a service dog would be fulfilling.  Most SchH/VPG titled dogs are ideal household dogs and pets.  Some of the public sector has a misunderstanding of what makes an ideal protection dog.
   An ideal personal protection dog is a dog that can interact with most everyone, recognize a threat, threaten back and if necessary use a reasonable amount of force to stop the threat.  In some ways similar to how an ideal body guard might function.
