MaDeuces very first steps in Obedience

It is unbelievable how fast she learns and that she stays that long on the food, actually.

First worked on the down, and that was a matter of seconds. I brought her to the Schutzhund Training two weeks ago and worked on the long down from the beginning and we had a little "dispute" about not wanting to lay in mud (She is a princess afterall , which we settled and she did amazing, on the long down, thanks to crate games.)

Anyhow, it still looks very raw, but with how fast she's learning, I'm pretty sure, it'll look much better in a couple of weeks, if I consistently keep them both (Nala and MaDeuce) working.
I will no longer keep her green, she has got to work or she'll drive me crazy and I might actually keep her as my Demo Dog, for the Basic Obedience Business.

Her first bitework session was a bit rocky, two weeks ago, she had her second bitework session and that was a huge difference to the first one. She's got potential and I like her a lot too, especially how environmentally stable she is. No matter what underground, if moving, shaking, rough, smooth, metal, she is working it all.

Looking good my friend. Oh the dog too. What made her bite work "rocky"? What where the issues that came up? Just currious.

Haha, thanks J.

She went straight into defense. She's never been nurtured or challenged like the helper challenged and he wanted to see her heart. She was a bit on the nervous side and concerned about the helper but she didn't run and she loved the game.

She bites, however, anything you present her.

In the second session she was less concerned about the helper, much calmer and not as "nervy".

Do I really have to justify my reasons?

MaDeuce is spayed, that should say enough about trying to find her a Schutzhund home and she's not a dog for a pet dog home either, let alone a home with kids. That would be utterly irresponsible of me.

I respectfully request to no longer question my reasons why I re-homed Indra and not MaDeuce. It's done, there is nothing I can do about it. So can we please stop asking these questions everytime I post something about MaDeuce?

In the first video, did you have food in your hand? If so, how did you hold it? It looked like she wasn't actually eating anything... just smelling your hand. I haven't figured this out yet (and I have some issues with my left hand) so I get Grim biting my hand and jumping on me. He's not "all about the hand" like your Mal is there. Thanks!

She is gnawing on the food, you just can't see it because of how I hold the hand.

Thanks so much for the explanation and the pic! I guess a harder piece of treat (like steak or beef jerky) would work better? I'm going to try it like that and see if it helps.
