Went for training Saturday evening and worked on several PSA - PDC scenarios and I was thrilled that my dog outed when I asked him to without any corrections. Here is the disclaimer - he bit on command and decoy gave him a good fight and let him have the sleeve, I took him away from the decoy and asked him to out and he dropped the sleeve - we did it 3 times and he did it each time. Did the same when we did the car -jacking scenario. As per advise from Centurian and others I did use the 2 ball technique and later the 2 sleeve technique and worked on the "aus" by making it a game for about a week and a half and did no bitework with him during that time. Last Saturday was the first time we did the "aus" - it was a great feeling to see him do it - now we have to continue proofing till I am 100% confident that he really got it. Of course, now we have to practice the "aus" on command with the decoy still wearing the sleeve and see how he does. One step at a time but we are slowly getting there. Once we get past this we can make some real progress as he has absolutely 0 issues with biting on command and not biting even with the decoy standing next to me, holding the sleeve right in front of his face and almost touching his mouth. Then I give him the command and he barks and bites with no hesitation and full force. He did the same with the car -jacking scenario - first time we have ever done that.

Also, for the first time I decoyed for my TD's IPO 1 female GSD, they were practicing - running the blinds while training to get her IPO2 and I took several bites in the blind. That was a very interesting experience - but I will leave it for another topic.

Here is a short clip of my dog doing his first inner bicep bite with a brand new decoy, in a brand new field, while tied to a bungee. Training for the PDC

Juno, good grip as far as I can see, but all prey, low fight, I would like to hear a lot less : good boy " , go to him few times and pet/reward, but stop with the continuing talking IMO

potentially nice sportdog and good you show the new vids everytime

Last night's training session was interesting. By the time we finished obedience and started protection work it was getting dark - so no videos this time as we were using our car headlights. We wanted to continue with the inner bicep bites as required by PSA, for the first bite - Zeus targeted high on the inner arm and the shoulder and almost nailed the decoy which would have been a nasty situation. In order to avoid that the decoy put on the top half of the bite suit - this time instead of targeting the bicep he took a bite straight to his chest inches away from his face and would not let go despite putting a lot of pressure. As per the decoy - Zeus is targeting him as opposed to the sleeve - so in a competition that would be a big loss of points, in real life a lot of points. Now we have to take a step back and turn him more into a sports dog and less civil as he is taking it as a fight.
