Very nice Tim! Great control!
Why was I expecting to see a couple of Salukis chasing a gazelle across the sand dunes? :lol: :lol: :wink:

thanks bob. we worked on his outs A LOT prior to the trial. he was not very consistent up until about a week before the trial. he cleaned up nicely. we finally just gave up on the compulsion. even with the e-collar on his flank at the highest setting, he'll just fight through it. we just started giving him a reward (either another bite or a fight with a tug) on the recall after EVERY bite. fortunately the way the trial scenarios were set up, with the long distance outs back to a recall for a handler protection, it played into our training perfectly. also he's much cleaner on the suit than he is on the sleeve (because that's his foundation with the IPO title).

Tim I LOVE hearing that! We had a really serious Sch III dog come to the club after 3 professional handlers gave up on his outs. He had even been choked out before he let go. All said he was hopeless. Just to tough. Our TD/helper had him doing clean outs within a few weeks. Nothing more then waiting him out and rewarding with another bite. Try and kick his a$$ and the war was on.
We use no e-collars, pinch collars or any other type of compulsion at our club. I know it not the same as working street dogs, but it sure as he(( works for us.
Course it's probably just cause we don't have any serious dogs here. :lol: :wink:

don't get me wrong. we still use the e-collar, but it's more of a reminder that "hey, you've got another one over here" type thing. so it's a combination of compulsion/motivation.

Now can we see the edited parts????? :p I am trying to remember to get my buddys video camera to film some training. If and when I can get that done, I am sending it to you so you can put music to it. No need for editing, as the entire thing might be bad. Be fun to see.

I have no idea how to get it on the computer really. It has little discs, so I am guessing I can just put them in one of the slots. I will ask then.

Cooolll Video.

Tim,. I understand completely about the e-collar. I have no hesitation about a correction if the dog completely understands what's wanted.
