cliffson1 This isnt a dog that you would want to slip the sleeve.....he has body and leg bites on the street.....he is not a rookie dog.
We also did some long bite call offs....this was not a learning training session, more of maintenance work; I understand your point D Frost and in the academy when dogs are learning rules of engagement I agree.

NancyJ Guy I know who was a trainer in Raleigh mode all his guys take a bite with no sleeve just so they would know. Eeeeek. Obviously control would be important. He had some wicked scars.

DFrost Why would you give up the sleeve anyway. If they are doing 100 yard bites they should have enough control on the dog to call it off. Slipping the sleeve is a bad habit. I don't want the dog to think winning consists of having something in his mouth. If the dog should rip of a sleeve or pant leg in a real deployment, he should spit it and reengage.

cliffson1 The part that isn't funny is the black and blue hematomas on my arm right now that are sore. This is an extremely hard biting dog that can feel your flesh through the hidden sleeve because of no bite bar. Not I was glad to get on my feet. Must admit the other handlers got a good laugh also.

cliffson1 Afterwards, it was funny as an be....but at the time I'm surviving as this dog has many street bites and I am NOT in control. As for the behavior, in this case it is more of a learned behavior on the dogs part. The other piece is this was training but not training for learning, but rather for maintenance. So I was free to do what I wanted to the dog to create adversity, but he wasn't giving me an opportunity once he had me
