Channeling.

Since we have crazy different opinions on fight drive, I thought this might be interesting to argue peacably about.

Subtopics could be importance, emphasis, and good techniques for doing so.

I have heard people talk of working a dog in defense and then "channeling" back into prey,Im not sure if this what Jeff meant.
I just "channel" prey and defense and whatever else the dog has to the decoy...LOL. :D

An example would be channeling frustration back into the bite.

In the old days, maybe after an OB session that the dog got corrected harshly, and you could see the frustration building up, we would get a correct behavior and then give the dog a bite.

No, not so much as attempting to take the frustration and put it into the bite. Not real good at explaining this, much better at showing. In the "old" days this was done often with defense as well.

I'm just not familiar with the word used in that context. I understand the concept Bob was referring too. We just called it, "building the dog up". The military was never really very technical.

Jeff, are you referring to the OLD ways of training dogs in Sports?
