Default Savvy experienced Police dog

I was working a six year old dual purpose patrol dog yesterday on a a long apprehension bite. Handler instructs me to take off for 100 yards and he sent the dog. I had further instruction to go down and fight the dog if he didn't take me down.....so off we went....lol...Once I was down on the ground engaging the dog every time I would try to get off my back or stomach for leverage he would pull me back to the prone.....after about 4times I realized he purposely was not letting me get to my knees so I could get upright. Finally, the handler removed the dog as I had a hidden sleeve that I couldn't get out of. We laughed about how helpless I was in trying to get to my feet or knees. This old wiley veteran dog has been around the block....lol.

Smart dog! . K9 1 - Human 0

Out of curiosity is that a trained behaviour or did the dog figure it out by himself?

Afterwards, it was funny as an be....but at the time I'm surviving as this dog has many street bites and I am NOT in control. As for the behavior, in this case it is more of a learned behavior on the dogs part. The other piece is this was training but not training for learning, but rather for maintenance. So I was free to do what I wanted to the dog to create adversity, but he wasn't giving me an opportunity once he had me down...lol

That sounds like my Cheeko! Only more obedient.
I wish you'd gotten a video.
