Video of protection training with 8 month old GSD

Just thought I would share a video of my pup doing protectioin work. We had a helper come in from Germany to our club and was with us for a couple days. Diesel is 8 months old and we've been doing a lot of foundation work with him for the OB and tracking parts of Schutzhund. We just started the protection part of Schutzhund and he is loving it, I am too.

Good video!

This is about where my 1 year old is. We just started so we are working on building drive and mainly focusing on OB and tracking right now.

Looks like a very nice puppy!
Do you feel like the helper was putting a lot of pressure on him and doing a lot of "fixing?" It is hard to tell from the video.

I like your dog. It looks like he's a good one.

I like the amount of pressure the helpers is putting on. The problem is that he never really recognizes the dog's power and gives an appropriate reaction. If that continues the dog will start to feel helpless and not show the power any more.

I'm watching your video with my 4 month old pup and she's all worked up looking for the dog in the house! Lol.

The helper did put more pressure on him then he has ever had before. What the helper was trying to fix was his bite, he wanted Diesel to get a "full" grip. The pillow we were using was too soft and kept almost folding where he had a grip on it and that made it impossable for him to regrip it.

At 4:14 and 4:16 the helper lets the dog have a second bite. As soon as the dog goes for a second bite I would have whipped it out of his mouth and thrown it out of the dogs reach. The Idea is to get the dog to do a clean bite, first time, every time. If it opens its mouth it's lost the prey.

Have your lazy helper suit up. That is a pet peeve of mine. Not an apron but scratch pants. The scratch pants are part of the whole picture.

Why insult and cut down the helper? And why should he suit up when working on grips with a puppy - with a tug? Use your knowledge and experience for good, giving help and advice and encouragement - otherwise it just sounds like you are having a bad day and lashing out randomly in an effort to make yourself feel better.

However, I love your avatar - that is one cute Rottie!! I'm sure that someone who likes Rottweilers can't be all bad!
