Re: Just a question

I think it depends on why the dog slows down. If its hesitation, then that kind of ruins the whole point of a courage test. I've been watching videos of dogs whose intent is to knock the helper down, and most of those dogs look like they slow down to position themselves better (sort of like a crouch and then they launch). I could be totally off, but thats what I see.

I think in a real life scenario. A person can avoid the initial attack whether the dog launches or runs straight at them. If the dog doesnt make contact with a launch its not gonna end up anywhere near the threat (watch dogs that lauch themselves miss and they go flying by way out of fighting range), and before the person could even think about fighting back the dog will already be up and balanced coming at them again, lol.
