Mic started to lose interest in biting sleeve on the back tie,🤔 so we needed to change our approach a little bit. 🧐
I tried to do it without back tie and make more fun out of it, and it worked!
At least for today 😂
His bite is full and firm again, and he wants to possess the sleeve, and doesn't lose interest that easy. 👍🏼 We will do it like this for about week, occasionally putting him on the back tie, and slowly prolong the period of frustrating him on it, and we will see what happen. 🐾
I am working on enriching my knowledge about dog training, so any suggestions are welcome ❤️
Practicing sit, stay and leave now the human is back. She says I’m getting very good at it 😁🦴

Worked on guards & directionals last night. As Valak matures and his drive for the sport goes through the roof, his ears are starting to not work. He gets so tunnel visioned at times. I’ve been doing some exercises that I’ve come up with to specifically help Valak with this. I do not want to crush his drive in order to get him to listen. Instead, I’m teaching him how to use his drive to get what he wants. When you’re competing against the decoy, then fighting with your dog to listen is the last thing you want to do. The activity with the decoy is and may always be the most important thing to your dog during bite work sets. You should not compete with that. Instead, teach your dog that you’re on the same team as them. I think he only needed 1 correction through this entire set. I’m proud of my hard headed boy!
