Get your decoy to not do so much before the out with putting his hands behind the back. It can be percieved as a signal. The decoy is allowed to complete movement after the out command. The dog must out even if there is movement. Not saying he won't, just that they will do this in trial.
Just a general note, on the defense of handler make sure that the dog understands it is the "hit" and not the motion, that is the signal to bite.
Be careful and take some time on the food refusal. Overcorrecting can cause avoidance in this exersize. Definately not fair to be chuckin the food at him like that at this point. Keep it further off, I think the reason he is moving is that he is trying to be right, and he still needs the food to be a bit further away from him. Not really fair on a tough exersize.
Start trialing, and get on me about trialing. :twisted: Definately way past time for both of us. :lol:
