The training in this video is to train Rush the escort in the Mondioring sport. The ring sports are biting dog sports from Europe. The biting dog sports are where all police service dogs and military working dogs come from. In fact, most GSDs and Malinois in S&R also come from bloodlines from these various dog sports.
I only say this because a lot of people new to Leerburg have never been exposed to biting dog sports and are unfamiliar with how important these sports are to the security of our country.
The training that these dogs go through is stressful. Dogs with good temperaments that can handle the stress and continue to work, are the dogs whose bloodlines are used in breeding programs. These biting dog sports become the culling grounds for working dog bloodlines. Dogs that can't cut it are not used for breeding other working dogs.
