|You crossed about every line possible in that vid. Could have done that better if you were trying.|
No offense but I feel sorry for the dog.

|Want advice? I watched the video around noon, but I only made it halfway through. In Obedience, if you are going to title a dog, you need to work on focus, first. The dog looks like a dog trained at the local grooming/boarding/training facility. You need to understand the rules of the sport you are going to tile in. Most of what you are doing is worthless and hindering the dog. If you do one more recall with a down or sit, that dog is going to become a snail. When he becomes a snail, you can use the fly swatter to gather his food. The dog is not motivated. You seem like an oldschool trainer from the 70's that thinks an "atta boy" is gonna cut it. Look at your recall. The dog is almost doing an army crawl with his ears back. That type of training might impress the neighbors, but a judge will eat you up.---------------------------As to the Protection work, you need to work with someone knowledgable. Watching 4 minute of the video makes me think this whole thing is a joke. That or you are making fun of this person by pretending to be him, posting his video. I mean, who uses a fly swatter? You couldn't grab a tree branch? If you are serious, why don't you hit a local shelter and train a dog that deserves a second chance?|

|I personally believe it is sad to watch this video... My advise would be to learn how to teach focus -- learn about positive motivation in training - and to get a rule book from one of the Schutzhund organizations you wish to title dogs in. |
From there you can break the routines down in each exercise, and teach one skill at a time - in a motivational way.........Dog looks much better working with you if you are a team and not a brutal a** barking orders at him that is confussing.
I would also advise to teach one thing at a time - your dog clearly didnt know what you wanted of him...............learning comes from repitition of a given action......
I edited this posted to be nice - - cause this boy clearly needs help..............

|Eoinoc - why exactly would you hire an inexperienced trainer -that obviously needs some help - to train your GOOD "HIGH Drive dogs".? Did you like what the dog was doing on the video?|
