Ouch! Glad both you and the dog are ok! I've seen some nasty falls at training... especially with the K9s. They come in like a ton of bricks! From what I've noticed.... experienced or not... it happens!!
I did decoying once for a few dogs so I could feel what it was like and understand what's going on on the other side..... not for me! lol. First shepherd was easy... hit a bit hard, but didn't shake, he was a dead weight.... second was a pup, so it was a hit and release... third was a very experienced personal protection Mali (that was supposed to go to the police) and I will tell you... the bite took my breath a little, but the shaking from that huge dog shaped muscle nearly threw me down!!!! I had bruises going all the way up my arm and shoulder. After that... I happily let our decoy take the sleeve, and went back to the other end!
