This is a poll, and nothing but a poll, not another table training thread. Please just vote
Thanks for sharing your expereince at least it opened my mind a bit. I don't think I will try it unless I really have to. What do you use it for to work on?i had a good experience with it. the way i saw it used (by our own gregg tawney) did NOT put the dog into the "fight or flight" mode that defense tables have the reputation for. it was basically the same as staking a dog out, but the decoy is able to get close to the dog without fear of being bitten. other things about it put my mind at ease and i wouldn't hesitate to let gregg work my dog on a table again.
another trainer who i don't trust? i would probably pass unless i got the chance to see him work other dogs first.
