back from arizona. had a great time. my dog did as well as i could have hoped. being a new team, i knew that we'd have some problems especially with the obstacles as our obstacle course is not the greatest. as far as the protection phase, it went well. he outted on all bites and called off so i was pretty happy with that....

here's one of me, a mesa pd handler and two of his dutch friends who made the trip from holland. the taller one works for Rotterdam PD and the shorter one works for south holland south PD.


camo on the bike attack...

The pictures are great. Do you happen to have any video clips too?

P.S.

I am allowed to watch and be a gopher for a PD trainer on occasion (the reason behind my new interest in training beyond obedience and CGC).

Cool. Very cool. Ever since I got to watch a couple of Mike's training clips I have become addicted.

A picture IS worth a dillion words........

You have to train for the CGC?????? :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: Ha/HA!! :p :p
Oh, yeah, I helped with a GSD around the corner just last fall whose owner had absolutely NO idea. There was no way that dog would've made it through that test! (Remember that it includes reliable recall.)

You mean you have never met an owner who couldn't pass his/her dog on a CGC test? You're very lucky!

Tim, question? Why a attack on the arm on the bike? In KNPV it takes points off because of greater risk on injuries with decoy and dog. Since a couple of yrs they prefer a leg attack on the bike.

Selena, when i heard there was going to be a bike apprehension, we were able to work with another handler the night before the trial. that was the first time he had ever done it. my dog has an IPO title. he has no KNPV training and that is not something we typically train for. we did not have time to train the dog to target the leg. we just wanted to expose him to it so the first time wasn't in the trial. you could tell who the PH1 dogs were in the trial and who weren't. probably 2/3 of the dogs bit the arm. those few with PH1's bit the legs....

thanks for your explanation. It´s very difficult for dogs who were never trained to do a bike attack, I think your dog did great then!
