Heres some pics of me and a couple of Dad and Bentley.
Very interesting. I really like the fact that they go into training mode, and leave the dog on a good note.Jerry Lyda said:Well lets see if I can answer this. We test the dogs courage not how much pain he can take. We do try to make him doubt his abilities. The amout of pressure we put on the dog of course depense on his level of training. In the entery level he will get one stick hit and no verbal pressure. Level-1 he will get more hits and verbal pressure. Level-1 he will also get pom frons or penny jugs. Level-2 even more of all. Level-3 EVEN MORE. etc..
In the upper levels if the dog doubts he will be run by the decoy. BUT at every trail when this happens the decoy will go into training mode. The dog is not going off the field without a good experience.
I hope I answered your question if not I'll try again. I don't want you leaving either without a good experience :lol:
Come on down to Ga. we would love to have you.
