Re: Just a question

Thank you everbody for your responses!!! Now its' a little bit more clear for me. I just didn't know the routine so I was confused for the purpose of this test. I didn't expect a helper to flee but maybe move forward or try to get the dog, and also I thought that the launching and flying a few meters towards the helper is pretty and looks scary but just requires a little step to the side and the dog is completely exposed to harm from the human.

Lisa, especially thank you for the clarification because that's what I kind of felt when watching the videos. To me it seemed that dogs that can assess the situation won't fly if they are serious about a fight, they will come very close and will try to restrain a person with the bite. So maybe slowing down is actually a better tactic on the part of the dog and not lack of courage.

Thanks again!!
