Alright I run a big risk of getting beat up over this by Konnie. She had just gotten back from the Beauty Spa and I begged her to train. Her hair looks pretty and her training outfit doesn't quite seem appropriate for training, but she's a gamer and doing awesome with the pups. Look at those flip flops:))

Crash is about 40 lbs of power and intensity. One of my favorite pups I have bred and was so right away.

Well, he is backtied to a post, so that helped, but you can tell I'm trying not to end up on my rear due to the flip-flops. The video is embarrassing enough without me falling on my rear :oops:

Konnie, I thought that you told me that you can't do USAR with a dog that has bite training? Does this mean that you are no longer planing on doing USAR with Crash?

konnie knows more than i do, but i know my clubs TD has started her bitch as a disaster dog. She was started in mondio i believe and is doing schutzhund right now. In fact, i am planning on taking my dog to a rubble pile in milwaukee this summer.

You can do bitework with a USAR dog. In fact, I know several people who do it. My USAR training mentor's last USAR dog was a SchH 3. However, there are some major differences in the basic foundation training for USAR vs. sport protection. The trainer/handler and trainer/decoy need to fully understand the goals and training of each discipline for it to work. In the end, the sport protection work must take a back seat to the SAR training. And, on top of that, the dog must be completely clear-headed.

Some SAR groups won't allow bite trained dogs on their teams. The FEMA USAR teams have no such restriction.
