Ask your training question

Question: My 6 month old GSD doesn't have any interest in biting a tug or a towel. As an 8 week old puppy he was very good at biting. Should I forget about doing Schutzhund?

I have a 6 months old GSD Working Line puppy, at 8 weeks he was very good biting, but now he doesn't have any interest on biting tugs, a towel or something else, I have been using the techniques on The Power of Training Dogs with Food and he is chasing the food very nice and no issues with the food, tones of food drive, what should I do differently? Should I forget about him been a Sch Dog as the protection work might be an issue? I watched a video from Michael Ellis saying that some dogs shouldn't be trained on Protection, but is not really clear to me the kind of dogs that shouldn't be trained. If my dogs seems not to be interested on biting things, is he the kind of dog that is not a good idea to train in protection? He is very social, outgoing, confident, no nerves issues, etc.

Cindy's Response:

I wouldn't give up on a 6 month old GSD, they can sometimes go through periods of lowered drive especially right after teething. 

I'd suggest doing the work in The Foundation of Puppy Bite Work with him.  If he gets going using the techniques in there, I'd move on to Teaching Protection Skills without a Decoy.

The puppy bite work video should be helpful to you.  Good luck!

On Leerburg's Ventlock

I love these! I bought a 4-inch many months ago because I wanted to try it after bought a Dodge Grand Caravan.When parked my dog is uncrated. I've been using this Ventlock for the back hatch but wanted more airflow so ordered 2 more for the side doors. Easy to install in seconds. I just have to remember to shut off the interior lights but once I've gotten into the habit it's easy enough. Very secure way to provide nice airflow for my mob. I highly recommend these though I've only used the smallest size.
