gsdsar I don't mind other people handling my dog in certain things. But more in regards to the SAR work. I need the dog to respect others. I need my teammates to be able to get my dog out of a crate and bring them to me and not get drug on the face. I need them to be able to put the dog in a down if needed.

And, when I fell off a roof and busted up my footon a training trip in TX, it was really nice to be able to hand my dog to a teammate and still get to work.

On my team we often hand our dogs off to new team members that don't have a dog yet, it's common. We also know each dogs emergency stop command. Because we work in a dangerous environment and if I see someone's dog about leap out if window, dang straight I want it to heed me when I tell it to drop.

Sport is different I guess though. There really is no need for someone else to handle the dog.

Baillif The most competitive dogs I've seen didn't even need their handlers there. They could have been yelling BOOGA BOOGA BOOGA at the dog and it would go through the routine anyway.

mycobraracr The only interaction my SO and I have with each others sport dogs is maybe letting them out to potty. Any type of play especially with a puppy can screw it up IMO. At the first sign of stress during trialing, and it's going to be looking for the "parent" to get it out of the stressful situation. Also, NO ONE needs to be handling my dog but me. My dog and I are partners, a team. If I just pass the dog off to anyone, what type of partnership is that?

Baillif Yeah it really doesn't if the training is fun the dog is going to glue eyeballs to him when it is go time.

Liesje As long as he's really putting in the effort, I don't think it matters. Sometimes my husband is home a lot more. He just doesn't do any formal training with my dogs (unless he's helping me)

Baillif I went with french commands because that is the vogue ringsport thing to do (god forbid I don't do the fashionable thing) IPO people seem to favor German but I found there are too many cognates between german and english and that isn't a problem with french.

I like how french commands all have at least two syllables too. Makes it easier for the dog to catch it.

My5dogs Yes I agree. We meet with trainer in 3 weeks. He had said the same thing.

Totally feeling you here.
