Okay, I hear this phrase in schutzhund training. I guess I have never been certain that I knew exactly what it means or entails?
Jan Kokx, for example, seems to be pretty good at it, and some people swear that it works for them. But I'm sure it only really works some of the time, and only lasts for so long. If the dog is under enough pressure for long enough he will probably revert to whatever behavior his genetics and foundation training will allow.II see some people who I think are working the grip get back in the sleeve and do several things with the dog. I was wondering if all that working was effective.
Define thrash. Do you mean a dog that throws it to the ground and kind of attacks it or do you mean a dog that holds it and shakes it and then drops it?I'd like to throw out a question for discussion since someone mentioned that "thrashing of the sleeve" is undesireable. Why?
Once the sleeve is slipped, dog thrashes it then drops it, and makes eye contact with helper. They might take a nip at the dead sleeve. Dog also will try to thrash the sleeve while the helper tries to lock up. I've seen inidividuals demand a dog hold the sleeve calmly after it's slipped... almost teaching this like they would the DB "hold", and correcting the dog if it's not done (hold).Define thrash. Do you mean a dog that throws it to the ground and kind of attacks it or do you mean a dog that holds it and shakes it and then drops it?
