Yes Go down on the next punch that was a Quality push there Hey good job and you keep hurting just Like this see look good and wait Yes good job more of a reaction Good girl so you look at me as a handler I’m right here I’m supporting i take the grip again now I’m supporting the dog I’m here It’s a good thing i’m helping you we are Our goal together is to get the bite so Now i’m gonna lift Hey second she does the right thing my Hand comes off Good job And sometimes a little out of the pocket I keep her in the puck and i put her Between my legs if necessary And i do these types of things it Promotes Yes The grip Good job we lift a bit here Wiggle your arm decoy wiggle it put her Down You can see the gripping behavior on the Ground is Very good Good job And i can start introducing the to Pressure by taking my hand putting it on Her flank
See that’s the right thing i take my hat Yes Good girl for tail same thing good girl Good job Now start to get up when she punches you I want you to go back on the ground Get up Wait Wait Good job No you should have gone right back down There We’re building her confidence it’s not Enough good then go down you should go Down Good think of it as i’m trying to get up Your job is to push you down get up Wait wait oh there go go go go down you Have to be much more on that kelvin Start to get up wait and feel the push Yes Good girl you can push me down start Getting up again And me as a handler i’m encouraging i Take the grip again Good nice and supportive Good job Good girl yes good job you can relax Still yeah good good Start to get up again let her push you All the way Yes and again stop to get up Watch the leash it’s tight it’s tight It’s tight
There’s a problem there so i make Pressure No no that shouldn’t that wasn’t enough Yes And now i come off so pressure come off Yes pressure Come off Pressure Good job promoting the behavior i want That possessive take Good job Yes sweet pea First time i’ve ever handled this dog Guys Right But i can still impact the bike work Positively now imagine if i was the Handler how much i could impact the bike Work Beautiful when i make pressure on the Collar or the cheeks the second the dog Does the right thing my hands go away Pressure Yeah hands go away good girl Good job Be an active participant don’t just Stand there like a dummy Yes start to get up calvin get all the Way up on one knee There you go again Supergirl Okay and now i’m going to remove her and You’re going to run off kelvin okay Good girl yeah
And here even as i remove the dog I praise her Good job yes she runs the decoy off Good girl Yes yes yes good girl Supporting her the whole way You would be amazed how much quicker You can get places if you as a handler Become a much more active participant in The whole bitework a lot of handlers Look i know a lot of decoys just say Stand there like a post and sometimes That is the best thing you can do but Me as a handler the better you get as a Handler the more you should understand What your dog should be doing and the More you should be there whether you’re Doing igp psa protection whatever it is You should be an active participant in Your dog’s bite work you should support Your dog in the bite work right praise The dog at the right times be quiet at The right times even you as a handler I like putting pressure as a handler on My dog in the right way to create the Best behavior because i think for many Dogs they actually take pressure better From the heller than they do from the Decoy because they know daddy right they Don’t adversarial relationship with the Decoy so in many cases the decoys put Into positions where they have to kind Of try to correct the dog like hey get a Fuller grip or hey start pulling and
There’s ways to do that but it also Creates more conflict with the decoy Especially if you’re doing something a Discipline where you don’t want the dog To be too respectful of the decoy right So the best thing you can do is as a Handler become educated become an active Participant don’t do Counterproductive stuff like talking to Your dog when your dog’s insecure like For instance my dog’s looking back at me When when i’m making barking or Something i just completely ignore her You don’t exist i i don’t even see You until you’re doing the right thing She’s doing the right thing good girl Good job Right i’m supporting her yes and the way I pet her a lot of handlers just do this right That’s not going to do anything for her I want to calm her and simultaneously Create more possession and depth to the Grip so my pressures my look how i touch Her it’s a very firm kind of think of a Cat licking its kittens kind of like Yeah and i’ll grab the ears good job and It builds and i’ll take the i’ll just Pinch the the hair ever so slightly It creates more possession in the dog There they get more intense and then you Guys you know the the dog almost feels Like you as a handler are gonna steal The decoys like if a dog has a bone and
You start doing this you know you’re Gonna create some conflict a little bit Right There’s times when that’s productive Especially when your dog’s gripping if Your dog has a good relationship with You if you’re dealing with a nasty dog That maybe has a ton of conflict with The handler then in the beginning all I’ll do is something like i’ll simply Look doc’s on the grip good i’ll walk up Good and i’ll walk away nothing happens So many dogs that the handler comes up And right away the dog’s trying to fight To get away from the handler on the grip I want my dog to actually want to push Himself into me on the grip and again it Doesn’t matter what we’re doing what Sport we’re doing whether you’re police K9 or igp or whatever your dog should Perceive you coming up when the dog is On the grip as a good thing a positive Thing a supportive thing you should make Him stronger not how you do it right From day one in the viper and again i Know for many dogs it’s not so possible Because the handler doesn’t know but if You know Try and become more active as a Participant in the bible your dog will Come along a lot faster
