Is it possible for a dog to be working in Fight Drive, but as soon as the bite work is over the dog is wagging his tail and getting petted by the decoy?
I had to put down my male super GSD at 4 years. His littermate's sister has always taken a backseat role. I'm wondering if she'll ever step up to the plate?

My dog bites my hand when I try and make drive.
Should I use a Prong collar in the drive building?
My young dog jumps around when I try and bring her into my arms. She will sit for the focus but squirrel away when I try and get her into my arms.
