With Tracking, this was the very first track that Mark has not walked with my husband, he normally walks right beside him giving him advice, I just thought it would be cool to share some videos of Khai progressing in his work and thought I would share his first track with out the trainer(of course Mark was standing right outside the camera range watching). We also do tracking on our own under his advice.
Tracking is actually my favorite part I really enjoy it. I am working my boy Achilles who is right behind Khai in his training. I will post his footage as he comes along as well.
We are in no way thinking this is trail worthy work yet, we know we have a long way to go but we are working very closely with an experienced trainer and will continue to. Mark has great things to say about our dogs and loves to work them. He likes them in fight drive, they DO get pissed when he pushes them, especially during the table work but for the most part they view him as their sparring partner, like a martial artist would their instructor. This is how he likes it and gets great results. You can clearly see Khai is barking in his face and gives him the drive he is asking for, yes of course he does love the sleeve too as the reward for giving the drive asked for. Khai has a solid temperament and takes pressure from both ends of the lease with confidence yet compliance. Heís a real neat dog, vids and pics donít do him justice.
Again I appreciate your words of wisdom, as I know you are very experienced. I have always enjoyed your input and responses on the board so I do appreciate the time you are taking to talk with me about our training
