meldy It tried to block it once on my phone too but I opened it in safari (or google?) one or the other works fine.

coulter Yeah I'll try it on my computer at home and see. Maybe it's a mobile thing.

carmspack he doesn't flinch , he has to quickly make up his mind to charge the decoy out of that zone or stay with the basket . The object must be guarded . There are chalk dust circles which are zones . The outer one the dog remains watchful , the closer in the more assertive the dog should be in keeping the basket . The dog chooses how to do it.

In this one the dog is more assertive in driving the decoy away but that leaves a space and time for the decoy to snatch the basket

These decoys look at the dogs as super stars and take great pride , making comparative notes among each other in having cost points on such and such a dog . If decoys are easy on the dog , the head judges will discipline the decoy .
this is how all the sports should be. would really separate a lot of dogs. must be REALLY fun for the helper too.

They are completely different sports, designed for different things. The good thing is, there are many different sports out there. So you have the option of doing what you like best.

The dog in this one looks like it flinches when the decoy lunges at the basket (first time at about 1:39) is that what I'm seeing? Would that be faulted?

meldy The dog actually walking backwards is part of that whole watching process. That's impressive. Kinda boggles my mind a little to be honest

meldy This looks much more interesting to me than IPO. Maybe it just seems like the dogs I'm seeing do it have a better off switch?
Does that make sense?
