4th Training Day for Duke... getting better!

For those of you who have been following in on Duke's Schutzhund training.... Here's an update from today (his 4th class).

Obedience was nice today! He responded well... got him to be a little more snappy... and not as much lag (especially our turns). We did a really far recall, and he did excellent! I've never seen that dog move so fast!!! On his arrival though... he almost plowed me to the ground! lol! We also started the beginnings to the sit in motion.... he surprised me (yet again), and did pretty well! His stay is MUCH more solid as well! We've gained focus when he's staying... no longer looking around.

Protection went great today as well! He's now got a full bite on the tug and not moving off of it. He's got a much more solid bite and is actually "fighting back" now. He did excellent today with his confidence too... he's full out in front of me and staying out there. Not more looking to me for reassurance! We also tried table work today to get his bite a bit harder and faster. It worked! After that he hit SOLID!

Today his trainer told me that he's improving a LOT faster then he expected, in both protection and Obedience. He's very happy with him! He said he thinks by the Fall, we can get a BH on him... and from there, he DOES think he can pull a Schutzhund title eventually. (how far, we don't know, probably just 1 or 2). But this was very exciting news! I'm so proud of my boy! I love this dog... he's just an all around awesome guy!

As of my handling him.... our trainer said I've gotten much better as well. Much more confident, and I've finally found his buttons... he said he can definitely tell that I've connected with him and we are working great together! Overall, he's very happy with both of us, and said we do have a chance to at least get out there a bit.

We didn't get too many pictures and videos... But here's the ones we did get:
