not a prob tho as the dog will always be leashed during bite-work, unless its a training scenario.
It doesn't take a field-long long bite to cause a serious injury. I work with some inexperienced helpers but if they are going to wear a sleeve with a bite bar, at the very least they need to wear the sleeve on the correct arm and present the bite bar at the right angle, even up close. Otherwise have the decoy wear a suit or hidden arm or something like that. The bite bar on a sleeve is there for a reason but it defeats the purpose and can be dangerous if the decoy is jamming the dog. Leashed or not makes no difference, and I'm not just talking "sport" either, your dog isn't going to be much help to you as a PPD or whatever you are training him for if his neck is jammed or teeth broken. There are lots of helper seminars for newbie helpers/decoys where your decoy can learn how to safely work the dog.

We adopted a dog we only found out later had done bitework in a very irresponsible manner. He was a loose cannon, and had a mouthful of broken teeth I am sure were from the inexperienced people doing the "bitework"

We all kind of see that...but would you be able to explain why?

Is it like loading a gun and leaving the safety off and setting it down in a roomful of toddlers?

Is bad bitework worse than none at all?
