I've been told there are several dogs a year that are killed during KNPV titling (or maybe training??) from neck injuries due to jamming their necks on the decoy.

I have a great deal of respect for both KNPV and the dogs who can compete in it... but I wouldn't be willing to risk serious injury or death to my own personal dogs just to compete in a sport, it just doesn't seem worth it at that point.... it takes "doing something fun with your dog" to a "your dog is just an object/posession" and that's simply not how I think about them and hope I never will.
