Schutzhund puppy video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aO0ayIefBg

This was intense to watch! She was so proud every time she got the rag!

Is this considered normal training for a 12 week old puppy? I looked up their website too. http://www.starkepfoten.com/ Not familiar with them, but fascinated

Re: Schutzhund puppy video

The comments pretty well sum it up. Not abnormal. gets pup used to unsure footing, use to hands/sticks coming over etc.

It showed up in the "recommended for me" video section so I took a look at it! I thought it was really interesting to see such a young dog have such focus. I guess thats what is meant by high drive? lol

Very interesting. I had never seen such a young puppy in training before.

Re: Schutzhund puppy video

K, noob disclaimer here, but at least from what I have seen and experienced so far, I wouldn't really call it normal or abnormal. I didn't do all that with my puppy and don't know anyone who did, but if you know what you're doing it's not going to hurt. Key phrase there being "if you know what you're doing." I didn't, so whacking my puppy or even pretending to hit it and drive it would have been just plain stupid for me to do. I didn't do a lot of ragwork either, and actually just started using tugs as rewards and for obedience (my puppy is now 12 months) because again, I didn't really know what I was doing and in that case, best to not do anything than screw up your dog's grip or accidentally give him a really bad experience.

To me, it's "normal" to take any new pup out and get it used to as many things as possible, but for me that is more broad than just SchH stuff like ragwork, getting stick hits, etc. I took my puppy all over to lots of places with lots of sounds, smells, and textures.

Re: Schutzhund puppy video

This is generally how the puppies that are destined for SchH are brought up at my club, it seems to build very intense drive for the rag and eventually the sleeve, as well as get them used to being touched all over and being around the sticks. I think if I ever got a pup from a breeder specifically for trialing in SchH I would put him through that at a young age too.

Re: Schutzhund puppy video

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>I understand. Looking at the video it seems there were times he was stroking the pup. I have no experience with the technique, it seems harsh but it's probably not. The pup didn't seem to mind whatsoever. In fact, the pup was probably enjoying it. I can see where the idea in part is desensitizing so there's no fear.</span>

Re: Schutzhund puppy video

Wow that pup has excellent focus and seems to be thoroughly enjoying himself.
My only concern is the lifting off the ground when so young because of the puppy teeth. I do see at times he supports the pups body against his leg but many times he is not and swinging...not an expert on canine canines but would seem not the best thing on developing teeth? anyone know more about that then me? chime in...

But I really liked all the conditioning that was being done on a pup so young....that should be one tough dog!

Re: Schutzhund puppy video

The reason he can do all those things with this puppy is genetics. The pedigree on all the breeding stock at that kennel is very sound. What he is doing with that puppy really has little to do with "high drive" and everything to do with solid nerves. Look at the puppy's body language, tail wagging, no stress. Nice puppy.
In looking at the website, I noticed that their sire, Kanto is not only a high DRIVE national Sch competitor, but he SETTLES in the house real nice with the family. How is that possible when all I've been told on this forum is about these high drive dogs you can't live with.....must be a mistake!!
