Laos Protection Video

This is my little (well not so little) wild child, Laos. We've been working on teaching this young male to "tap drive" as he has difficulty doing that. I believe that once I start handling him fulltime again in protection that the training will progress as he's responding to the drive tapping in obedience for me. Bob is my other helper and he just doesn't get the same response from Laos that I do.

I am not a fan of the jerking and so much yanking and hostility towards the dog.. I guess I am " new school" according to the Schutzhund Club I train with. We don't introduce a prong unless it is needed, and our trainer has gone through many champions in his time... I left my original prospective club because they wanted $350 every 10 weeks for that crap.... Wasn't thrilled or impressed... your dog looks good... crazy nerves though. beginning Sch though correct?

I think Laos looks great, his obedience and drive seemed balanced to me. And he isn't crazy when he gets the sleeve.
There was control in his behaviors and a bit of vocal leaking is ok at his age.
Bob is a bit softer on him than you, LOL!

VABeach ~ I'm not a big fan of that type of training also, but every once in a while you get a dog that doesn't respond to the typical motivational training techniques that I prefer. That prong is definitely needed as we have broke three collars on this dog. Not every training method will work on all dogs. Laos is a strong willed, hard-headed, 95 lb dog with his own agenda. He's also what I consider high drive with a low threshold to get in that state of drive. Cookies and sweet talk will not get you any where with Laos. Is he a good SchH prospect ~ only time will tell. He's not going to be a "sports dog", that much I know.

I like to see you try to get Laos to eat a cookie while working on his protection obedience. The only thing that boy wants to eat is the helper!

Not to take away from the thread, but I'd be curious how you guys get a high drive, strong willed dog that's h e l l bent on getting the helper to comply? Even a compliant dog needs jerking in protection at times!

Maybe I need to make another thread!

I would like to hear from some of you also? No bashing of training techniques, just a good informational debate.
