when I had guests over the other day , discussing the possibility of schutzhund training , and which books I would recommend I once again thought of Helmut Raisers book and this thread.
So the answer to "Carmen, have you read Raiser's book?"
is yes , and I still maintain that Raiser was instrumental into advancing prey stimulation as a motivation in training to a science . This changed the nature of sport and has and is changing the genetics of the dog , by of course, selection . Raiser had his own mentor in Bernhard Mannel , who also influenced Bieler . You can not argue with the results these trainers and others since then have received on the BSP podium . Outstanding.
But the work is largely shaped by prey drive.
It does matter. A dog in high fight/aggression, when I stab him or punch him in the face, will fight harder."
continuing " A dog in high prey will be rattled and potentially disengage... cause prey doesn't fight back like that. " --- exactly the point , because in the hunt if there is too much fight back the "hunter" will back off preventing himself from being injured - injuries which can be potentially fatal . Also, the "hunter" will deliberately select and isolate , the young, the weak, the ill , who have more inability to fight back.
