Bane got a leg sleeve for Christmas. She is quite happy with it. :D Jerry Lyda was nice enough to take these pictures and email them to me... with his new Christmas present, a nice new camera that actually takes OK pictures at 10:00 p.m.!
(Baenre vom haus Do'Urden, 16 months)
Her first bite on her new sleeve...


why jump so high when you're going to bite so low? doesn't make sense to me... :eek:

Very nice! The decoy's cheating with the scratch pants though, no fair using added protection... how else is he gonna feel the pups teeth penetrate thru the sleeve to know he should graduate to a thicker sleeve? ;)

LOL, hopefully she won't need a thicker sleeve, we'll start teaching her outs soon, then she'll be able to go back to the suit pants... she bites and slips the jacket, but you know, it ain't easy pulling the pants off.... :eek:

well, they have to kick off their shoes and everything, right? If not, the decoy is going to have exposed and unprotected feet in the suit pants... she has worked on the suit pants and we choked her off the bite but the leg sleeve is easier right now.

I go barefoot all the time in the suit. No dog should be targeting that low, unless the decoy has no clue of what he is doing. However, I am sure that your decoy will keep his feet out of your dogs mouth.

The dog should target right below the knee.
Are you crazy???? I refuse to do barefoot anything!! Do you know how much dog poop I run the risk of stepping in?? :p

You can slip off your shoes at the same time as slipping the suit pants off no problem. It's not a big deal unless you're one of those people that puts their shoes on way too tight :lol:

You have dog poop on your training field?? That is NASTy
Usually dogs poop toward the outside n it gets picked up within a few minutes, but there's been times..... :p Especially when it's messy poop you can't pick up n the flag next to it blows away n I don't know where it is. It's not a club or a official training field, its my td's front yard of a 5 acre lot where 20 dogs exercise on a daily basis... when I run them on the atv I run em along the fence so usually the poop is along the fence line, but then there's dogs like that damn Schnauzer who has to poop or pee after every other bite in the middle of the damn field :lol:

I haven't measured her in awhile. She is right at 55 lbs. though. Her dad is from Jotunheim in Denmark, they're pretty adamant about preserving the standard as a 'medium' breed. :D I like it, she's speedy, she jumps high, and she's a heck of a lot easier to hold during protection work than my 75 lb. male.

My male is actually pretty small, for a male. He is still young, but I dont think he will be much bigger. (He's about 65lbs 14 months old) Im not a fan of the "huge" dobes. I was just curious how big she was, its kind of hard to judge from the pictures. Nice looking girl though!
