Ouch!

Today at schutzhund club, besides traininng/working my dog I got more training on being a helper. I am enjoying learning the helper position as I can only see it making me a better handler (plus I secretly like getting bit). Today I learned the importance of a growing protector. During long bites I got nailed twice by doggie paws. It did not feel nice! Oh the little things I learn the more I get involved with this sport. I wont even get into how I bruised my hip

I'm surprised you are taking long bites while learning. That must be a rush!

How do you feel about whips?

The bites were "long bites" but not really that long. Just long enough to get the feeling. The dog I was working is a hard biter and is known for taking the helper to the ground. I don't think they were worried about the dog. They said they were throwing me in the deep end hahaha. My biggest fear is injuring a dog. However I did pretty well.

As far as whip, I have not used them yet. I am really just getting bit at this point I see them used and a great reaction from the dogs. The sound seems to get them into "hi-drive".

I loved doing helper work it can be very painful esp. With a 100 pound gsd they hit hard.
