Very Good one Ann..... You had me LOL.
Darn, I shouldn't had sharpened the picture.... :lol:ann freier said:have you considered turning this into one of those 500-1000 piece jigsaw puzzles?--it'd be a killer :lol: 8)
Just as it is in the picture, Robert, exposure to terrains, fire, smoke, explosions, water, etc. etc.Robert Blok said:Jose,
What was the object of the exercise? What were you doing? (My eyesight is bad during foggy day's).
You don't train pups/dogs to sit next to explosives, Woody. You'd rather work them to indicate and get the hell out of there.Woody Taylor said:So how do you train up to puppies sitting next to explosives?
No, Woody, you work them. That's the beauty of failures.And what happens if one of them is not calm and steady before, during, or after the exercise? Do you cull them?
It's ok, Woody. It's not you without teasing. Malicious or not, I'll just dismiss it. :lol: :lol:Woody Taylor said:Also...have to throw this in as good-natured teasing...are they not reacting because they are deaf at this point? :twisted:
Woody Taylor said:I'm actually quite serious, Jose, you post this stuff, I'm genuinely interested in how you build up to sitting 10 m.o. pups around explosives and smoke. What do you do if they get distracted? What's distracted in a situation like this? Looking at where the explosion comes from, etc.?
You're saying you want them to indicate and get out of there, I think you are describing a different skill than what's being represented in the picture, which appears to be making sure they sit while explosions are going off and while they are enveloped in smoke (per your description).
Just wondering what the training purpose is and how you train UP TO it. And what counts as a failure, etc.
