The Stig Thanks for the encouraging words.

My real surprise was her not being mouthy on the sleeve; she likes to mouth tugs, balls and soft toys. It was firm and deep, no readjusting her bite. Well, that and her not shying away at the trainer's posturing and whip.

Is a Puppy Sleeve the same as a Bite Wedge? It looked like a small sleeve, just covering the forearm.

Lucia, thank you for sharing because I totally relate to above. I was complete unprepared for him to use the sleeve & whip. She has never seen either, so when he was going to work my dog, I thought it was just the flirt pole. Also, she hated the texture of jute because an acquaintance tried to play tug with his jute pillow-thing years ago, and she didn't like grabbing onto it.

I don't think I would pursue this avenue with her. She obviously enjoys it, but I don't want to stress her body too much. I haven't discussed the new developments with my trainer yet, but another member said to let Janka decide. It is evident she enjoys bite work but there is so much prep work and she is 6.

Heck, we haven't even gotten our BH yet! We are at the tip of the iceberg, just working on focus. I try not to think too far ahead with what needs to be done because I just feel overwhelmed.

One thing at a time, and we'll just follow the guidance of our TD. He has a much better eye than I do and I trust him to know what is best for Beanie and I.

Well, that was just a whole lotta thinking out loud. Thanks.

Castlemaid Wonderful! Congrats! I remember going through a phase of being unnerved when i first started working with Keeta - it's one thing to see other dogs being worked, but another seeing your own dog being pushed and them pushing back with that kind of intensity - I actually took a break from training at that point.

After some time, you will know your girl, and know that you have control, and you'll be fine with it, and understand the drives that are being switched on and off through the training process.

Carriesue Yay go Janka! I can try to get some photos for you of her protection work if you want when I'm out there. Can't wait to get this medical treatment over with so we can get started with our training!

The Stig Oh gosh, are you able to see when her birthday is?!!

I definitely did not use her actual birth date and every guess I tried so far just ends up locking me out of tries. So I just gave up. I don't know how else to log in.

(i like tracking vids )
