What age to introduce puppy bite sleeve - Page 1

I have a highly bred imported puppy with the perfect genetics IMO, and was looking for suggestions on introducing bite sleeve during training once basic obedience and prey drive building is present. I have no nearby club so I do my own training.

I love this. Highly bred imported puppy with perfect genetics. This sound to me like a perfect ''Wedding cake'' made on special order.

Old Shatterhand he did say in his opinion no need to get snarky.

I don't see anyone doing that you when you describe your dogs.

there are no set in stone "age to introduce puppy bite sleeve".
after all it's just a bite, regardless of object (tug, pants, hands, sleeve, etc.)
another question perhaps "bite the sleeve in conjunction with applied pressure from sleeve holder".
it's absolutely depends on temperament of pup and in fact some dogs might never could grow to this.

Lol. Ok well bred puppy with a nice pedigree.

But leaving breeding expectations aside, Omg Smile... agree with ValK on the practical question asked. You just need to 'suck it and see' for the first few sessions, I think, and leave it out for a while if he does not seem very interested at first.

Al Bravo - why don’t you spend time with your pup and develop it’s character instead of worrying about when to start the sleeve work. That way will make sure that the pup has the chance to develop and be suitable for the bite work. The bitework is a dangerous exercise and not all dogs are suitable for this training regardless of pedigree.
