Dogs are often lifted or choked off a ball in training before they know the out.
This is an example of doing it all wrong.
The dog doesn't even need to have its legs lifted off the ground. The leash isn't used on a choker. You lift the dog once to take the air away and calmly hold it there until it releases the ball. You don't choke the dog for a bit, let it down, choke it again, let it down... that's horrible.
The flanking of the dog in and of itself is abuse. I would take his dog away and he would never work another dog a day in his life. I wonder where he learned this
I hope they burn this guy bad. IMO, this is definitely abuse.
When a dog saves the life of a man, it becomes clear that partnership knows no bounds.
