Description

For the last 10 years, Michael has given seminars 45 weekends a year. Many of the training groups and clubs that Michael taught did not have access to a regular decoy. Over the years Michael developed this training program that allowed his training groups to practice biting skills while he was gone.

Many of the members of these groups have gone on to get Schutzhund and Ring Sport titles. His system has been used on police service dogs, personal protection dogs and even Agility dogs. Many top Agility trainers are learning the value of teaching their dogs advanced tug skills.

This DVD is an in-depth, step by step study of Michael’s system on establishing the foundation of biting skills without a helper or decoy. Trainers only need a friend or family member that will handle a bite wedge, a bite tug or a high value toy to assist them in rewarding correct behavior.

The value of the training methods we show are that the dogs learn correct behavior and capping skills at a lower drive level. In the training steps, Michael explains how to start the training for each skill. He also explains when to add drive and stressors for these various protection skills. When these things are done correctly the work with decoys goes much faster and with fewer mistakes.

Hello,

First of all I would like to say that I am enjoying the DVD Teaching Protection Skills without a Decoy, in my opinion it was well put together. My hat goes off to both ED and Michael for a job well done. I can't wait to see the other DVD titled,"The Foundation of Puppy Bite Work." By any chance, was this DVD shipped out and if so when? I feel like a little kid waiting. My wife even tells me,"you and this dog training OMG." Thanks to all at Leerburg.
