Hello all,

I tried to post under the sports section. It says that access is restricted in that area. I got an emailed invitation to the board and thought I would check it out. Great board!

I will keep reading the sports section and the rest of the board.

Safe training,
Chris Fraize

Hello!

There were a lot of 'informational' emails sent out to various people and lists. All are welcome here, but an intro is required. If you hate intros, there is a 'fill in the blank' one at the top of this section.

After your intro you will be allowed to post anywhere in the forum. We set it up this way to try to filter out trolls.

Thanks!
Michelle

Hello all,

I didn’t really know what to say so I hope this works.

I have competed and placed in obedience trials, personal protection trials, weight pull competitions, catch work, agility, herding and many other dog sports competitions with an APBT.

I founded the Maine Association of Dogsports (M.A.D.) I have been featured in Dog Sports Magazine, WJBQ Radio, The Portland Press Herald, The Sanford News and The National Geographic Channel just to name a few.

I have also been an expert witness in dog bite cases. I am a Certified decoy (the bad guy that gets bitten) for the National Association of Protection Dogs, K-9 Pro Sports and winner of the 2000 Dog Sports Open Magazine Decoy competition.

In addition I conduct bite prevention seminars for the Maine Safety Council, Central Maine Power, Local Fire Departments, Lakes Region Humane Society and many more organizations.

I hold four personal protection and obedience trials here at my business Canine Solutions Training Services (http://www.k9sts.com) in Acton, Maine

Her are a just few of my APBT’s working in obedience and bite work.

This is U-WP, U-CD, ‘PR’ PUNCHLINES BRONX TALE ASR EL, PrPD, ID, CGC/TDI Winner of the 2003 Dog Sports Open (Int).

http://www.k9sts.com/bronxmovie/

This is PUNCHLINES RUMBLE STRIP. “Rumble” will be titled this summer.

http://www.k9sts.com/rumblemovie/

I hope I am not breaking any rules by showing videos in the wrong place or showing bite work where is it not welcome. If I am in violation, please accept my apology and delete them for me. I hope to learn here and help here if possible.

Safe training,
Chris Fraize

Demo and I are members of PSA, and he does bitework with his dog Connor. He and I both do decoy work.

Of course, they are all family pets. A personal (family) protection dog is no good if it can't be with you at all times. I can't and won't have any dog around my children that are out of control.

Great question, thanks again!

I just saw the pictures of you and your club dogs working. GREAT PICS! It is a refreshing pleasure to see a woman doing decoy work! One of my female trainers is also a club decoy! GREAT JOB!

You and your club are more than welcome to come to our FROSTBITE winter personal protection tournament in a few weeks. Check out the site. http://www.thefrostbite.com

Again, great pics!

That's awesome! I don't know anything about PP to begin with... :oops: It just seems that often "working dogs" are not really family dogs as well. I'm truly amazed at them!
