If they would ever answer their phone, I could make an appointment. I'm thinking about just "showing up." I do think Heaven would go for bite work...(not Koa, he's kind of lazy and clumbsy). I'm curious to see how she'd do.
We paid for a year. We can go out there as much as we'd like, 7 days a week, for a year. Like Greg said, we never expected her to take to bitework. I only had her out there for obedience but she LOVES working now.LuvaBULL said:That's not bad -- how many weeks worth of training?
Bite work = protection, and teaching a dog bitework is teaching a dog how/when/why they should bite. I don't want my dog to randomly bite people, but if someone was to break into my house, or attack me on a run, I'd like to know that she would at least try to defer the attacker long enough for me to get away. Also, the more obedient a dog is, the happier and more confident they are and the less likely they are to bite out of fear.AkainePSP said:What is the purpose of bite work? If we don't want our dogs to bite people why are we teaching them to do so? I am asking because I don't know and am curious.
