Also, we are going to work on different areas to bite, but for now we're just getting him used to the suit. If he's confident enough by the weekend, we may try to offer somewhere else and see what he does. It's all trial and error with him.
The goal is to see him be sent without needing me within 6ft of him.. Out of his "safety bubble".... and have him bite with what's offered or if nothing is offered, have him take the bite regardless.
I just enjoyed seeing him having so much fun and to see how confident he's gotten... made my heart melt! He's such a good dog...

Duke didn't hesitate at all. In fact his grip was more full, stronger, and he wasn't as noisy on the bite. Very calm, confident, and quiet. I think he enjoyed it far more then the sleeve.

It's definitely a lot of fun to train in... but very addicting! Always more things to get, more to learn, and more to train. It never ends! And the partnership you get with your dog is priceless. You have to be very committed to the sport though. You have to train and practice, trial, and do things over and over again. Lots of money and time.. but, it's a blast!

Duke tries the bite suit!
We tried the bite suit today at training... He did great!! He actually did better on the suit then the sleeve. So proud of my boy!
His first reaction to "winning" was priceless!
"OMG, Where's the rest of him?!?!"
He had a ton of fun today!
