Excellent work!! It is nice to see patience. So often including myself at times we as PSD handlers because of time restraints show little time for patience. Watching your vids and reading your writings he should turn out to be an excellent prospect.

Keep us informed of your progress.

Thanks all!

I did see some frustration today from him, right after the bite work when the decoy ran away and hid. He quickly took it out on the leash. He was intense, way up in drive and definitely did not want to stop the bite session. I then saw some more later when I went to take him away from his toys. He came back at the leash real quickly, but he didn't bite me. That was good, and it was over quickly, also good. More things to work on tomorrow, and next week, and next month. I saw a little of what I was told about.

I have a lot to think about over a beer tonight. I will be tweaking my plan each day for sure. Tracking is going very well, I may just track all day for the next month.

Jim, what were his car issues? I have a dog that whines to no end. It is not a low whine either. High pitch, screaming/screeching. He loves getting in the car. Every time we walk by my car, he stops and looks at the door. As the car moves, he starts up. For hours at a time, this goes on. I have recently started with a bark collar that is helping, but he is getting shocked more than I like.

Malinois and Dutch coming out of KNPV lines are referred to as Mal X (cross) if they are blonde and Dutch X if brindle. KNPV lines liberally cross these two as the focus is on traits for protection work and not color. Most of the Dutch in the US are out of KNPV lines hence crosses. Genetically only the color varies.

In both Malinois and Dutch Shepherds there are "pure" lines referred to as FCI lines. These are not crossed one to the other or at least not for many generations. But there is a lot of argument whether or not they are different breeds or just different coat colors.

To Slam-dunc... how great this guy has you and your experience and style. All the very best to you and Baru. I know as a fellow Dutch sufferer...and I say that with a big smile on my face....their possessiveness and confidence and determination and bratty insistence is a pain in the you know where but also gives them the hutspa (spelling?) that we so come to love.

And trying to figure out what works for them... totally agree that beer will help. ;-)

His issue was not wanting to get in he car and fighting like an Alligator doing a death roll. That issue is fixed and now he happily hops right in. Fortunately for me he is quiet in the car, I would not want the whining that you are dealing with. Good luck!
