The French Ring Sport is an exciting working dog sport that has come from France. Through it we are exposed to the cutting edge of bite work training.
The French Ring Sport is one of the most demanding working dog sports there is. The French helpers are the most INTENSE in the world. If a dog can work against a good French helper he can work against any helper, any place, anytime.
The French have developed leg biting into an art form. We show how they break leg bites into incremental parts, and then train the parts. When the parts are trained, we put them all together for the finished product.
The stick used in the ring is a 1-inch thick piece of bamboo that has been split down the middle several times. Some people call it a "clatter stick" (because of the noise it makes when it's vibrated). This noise alone will send all but the best dogs running back to their handler. In Schutzhund, a dog is hit twice in an attack. I have footage of a dog taking over 50 hits with a stick in less than a minute. This tape shows you how to use the stick and train a dog to work under it.
