"My first personal experience was at a club near the ancient city of Liege in far eastern Belgium in the middle nineteen eighties.. "
"Like it was yesterday I remember standing by the ring watching a marvelous Malinois perform in perhaps the most fascinating ritual of the working dog world, the Belgian Ring trial. Schutzhund is precise, demanding and dramatic. KNPV is practical, down to earth and powerful. French ring is spectacular, athletic and impressive. But Belgian ring is a chess game between the handler and the dogon one side and the judge and the helper on the other".
