never saw any training outside program in Netherlands and not in czech, I did several competitions like in this post, also with my IPO dog, but these are mostly entered by KNPV dogs

spending time apart from "trial picture" work would mean a huge number of dogs would never earn titles (or would take years to do so).

that's only says about bad direction, taken by official IPO/SchH bodies in changing the rules and approach to setting critearias for passing trial dogs. it seems over past 30+ years, this did gradually went into nearly absurdity. nowadays winners at all levels of competitions isn't the really strong dogs (from standpoint of workability), which could be easily re-trained to real life service tasks in accordance with prevailing in them traits, but rather the dogs, which are soft enough to be manipulated during preparation to puppet's level of performance.

Great stuff thanks for posting. This is real world test. My mentor would place a decoy in a dimly lit basement and see if the dog was willing to go through the bilco doors to the basement. Ok they went down the stairs, are they willing to get a grip? Is the grip as strong as it is outside? Some folks scoff at PSA but I believe its a truer test of a dogs nerves.

Strong dogs. Not many people have the skill set to handle a serious dog. How many times has someone asked me to help place a dog because the owner can't control it.

I would like to see clubs increase their members training education, ie. attend at least one seminar a year, attend a different dog sport trial, ring, knpv, psa. You can always learn something new. I have been fortunate to have had many high level trainers come to my area. But then again you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.
