Liz&Anna Actually I was just about to share some videos (I'm handling now BUT she's still stronger then me lol) alps I have a question, Anna is going through her first heat, my trainer told me to work her through it (he said, "what if she's in heat when you go to trial"?? And I was like hmm ok...good point)

So I noticed she wasn't as intense as usually and there was a second where she backed up (which she NEVER EVER does, it's very unlike her) I'm wondering if it was because of the heat?

Does any one have experience with this? Maybe I should have made a different post lol

Castlemaid You can still be proud. She's your baby!

Are others still doing the handling during protection? If so, I'd start asking for you to start. From that previous video, she has "it", so unless you are the biggest idiot in the world (doesn't sound like you are, so far, ), a few little mistakes while you learn line handling isn't going to set her back any.

I don't think there is anything wrong with a sport dog that works in prey, as long as the owners KNOW the difference - often you see a video of a dog working in prey drive, and people are all commenting how serious and impressive the dog is - errr - no, dog does good work and is a fun dog to handle and trial with, but the dog is NOT in defense, and people should be able to read their dog better than that.

If Anna was a soft dog, you wouldn't have these awesome videos to share! A soft dog is a very sensitive dog that falls apart under pressure - which can be so much as a harsh word, a collar correction, or a hard stare from the decoy. Sometimes, puppies that have a lot of prey drive do great in training until the decoy starts putting more pressure on the dog, then you seem them disengage, go into avoidance etc.

You can have a handler-sensitive dog that is NOT soft - my dog just lives to please me, and he is very sensitive to me, but he'll destroy the decoy if given a chance. Yet he is very responsive to me and can get over-sensitive to my corrections, and defers and submits to my older dog. Doesn't change the fact that he is a strong dog on the field that won't back off under pressure.
Thank you for the info!! this forum is always very helpful, My friend has a dog who she said his lines were bred to pay very very close attention to a handler (my dog and hers actually share a few family members, yoschy and troll) so I'm assuming your dog is like this, that he (or she) works very very closely to it's handler. If I'm understanding it correctly.

She is learning the word "revere" (I think that's how you spell it lol) but yes for her it's a game, they don't target the person they target the equipment, she doesn't want to bite the guy- she wants that awesome dog you he is wearing on his arm lol
