Another Yahooo!

I just want to thank Shawn Flipp and Harold Card for coming up and doing some Yahooo training today. I had a great time and Rumble did too! He is WIPED! Shawn did some great decoy work with all of our dogs! He really does a great job! Harold just smiled alloy and almost took a few “live” bites!

Harold brought his new Tacoma pup she is amazing! Shawn worked his bulldog “Booka” and she did very well. Both of their dogs would do very well at this type of training!

It was great to see you both again and work some dogs! THANKS AGAIN!

Enjoy the video!

Love watching your videos, Chris -- Rumble's focus is just amazing! That little Joliet reminds me of my Kate when she was that age.....

Chris, when there are two decoys, are you telling the dog which one to attack first?

Yes, I can out him and redirect him at will. He will only bite on his own judgment if I scream if I need help. I can also call him off a decoy before he gets there if need be.

Great question!

Safe training,

I keep watching Rumple - I love how he is so focused on YOU and responds to YOU.

I want that kind of focus from Birdie.

She has started getting "vest smart" meaning Service Vest goes on, she behaves and obeys. Service vest off and she is an over energetic puppy and doesn't obey commands and I won't give her a command unless I going to get up and enforce it if need be.

awesome video :)

I was wondering about the decoys too

I was thinking the out must be very difficult, I have trouble with my own dog and just his tug toy, wich I have to drop, and then ask for the out.

It was amazing to see Rumble resist the man's hat and when they were sitting next to him and over him!

The worst part about it is. If I try and muscle the toy out and manage a correction at the same time, most of the time he out muscles me!! Oscar also seems to think its a game, it can be frusterating. I KNOW thats not good, so we've settled on him outing it after I let go as soon as I ask. I suppose the best way to fix this would be to do a trade for a treat, and then we could move past that too. Have you tried that with Riggs? Did it work?

Rumble is a great Dog but, like i have always said he is a reflection of a great handler and good decoying by Mr.Mike.. I had the honnor of working that high driven dog when I was invited by Mr. Chris and his staff to Frostbite 2006. That dogs focus is like no other and his desire please is off the charts. Whatever you do don't say that he cannot do something.(ex: ring sport, obidence after a bite, etc..) cause he will prove you wrong...

I teach an out by sticking a piece of liver practically up the dogs nose, and they will (usually) let go of the object to grab the liver. If they will not let go, I use a lower value object. When I know they will drop it for the liver, I say out as I move the liver next to the nose, right before they will drop it. I then give it back, usually thrown so it is fun. They learn the game pretty quick that dropping it gives them not only a treat, but they get the object back. After a while, I only give the liver every few times, and eventually I do not need to use a treat at all, the continued game of fetch or tug is the reward.

I had done that exact process with Oscar, perhaps it needs to be re-done. Unfortunately we cannot use things like liver because he is on a restricted diet for allergies...

Darnit Chris! My dial-up can never get your videos. Stop teasing!

But I want to have a chat w/ you before starting Vega.

Also have a VERY mellow pup who is fairly environmenally bomb proof (no he isnt deaf :D ) that may have potential if I do some drive work.
He may be TOO mellow though. Never had a dog like him. Not sure about his potential. He' smart. He CAN be active. But my friends keep asking of I'm sure he's not part Bassett Hound! :|
