Working with Peter Verachtert Video

This weekend Akela and I were to a Peter Verachtert IPO protection seminar. Here Peter is teaching my helper how to avoid Akela's trashing and shifting on the sleeve.

Very nice work.
I really like Akela, and very good skills as well.

That is one of the awesome things about Peter. Not only is he unbelievably good at working dogs he is also excellent with teaching people.

I am sure your helper (and you, and Akela) learned quite a bit this weekend.

I am really looking forward to his visit here in May.

Yupi! Finally I could put the video directly (sorry for the finger )


Thanks! Akela may not be the flashier dog, but I love how he is starting to show power.

Effectively, Peter has a way to make things simpler, which at the end is very encouraging.

I have that same shirt!
I didn't see Akela thrash the sleeve at all, he had a nice calm grip. Can you share what Peter suggested?
I like the way you platzed him to out, we do that too.
The only time he 'shook' the sleeve was because his ear looked itchy, not due to wanting to kill it.
He is really focused on the helper not the sleeve, I like that, and his H&B is great!

I really like it, at least in these clips he appears very calm and in control. I personally like that more than a "flashy" dog that is just screaming and bucking around all the time, especially with a dog his size.

You don't see it because Peter is very good at preventing the behavior (Akela is young, so we are in time to prevent it to become an habit) more than in correcting it. Basically he doesn't let the sleeve to become "dead", because then is when Akela regrips. You can see him moving the elbow, as example. He also likes to spin the dog so if he regrips, he loses it, but with Akela that is easier said than done . Peter puts more pressure in the dog too, the fight makes Akela'to bite harder, as opposed to pure prey.

He shook the sleeve because he had a load of slobber into the ear

Akela can be jumpy, but as Lies said, with a dog of his size there is so much you can allow without being dragged along the field. This was the first day, the second day I worked specifically (with different grades of succeed ) in the obedience applied to protection.

Carolina, good you are going, I'd send Akela with him only so you can take pictures of him . I did a bit of helper work too in this seminar and Peter said I wasn't that bad. If he keeps is word I'd love to go to his place one of these days and train with him to improve myself.
