The Donovan Pinscher
There is ABSOLUTELY a point in training where a gradual "switch" from the decoy teasing the dog...to the dog teasing the decoy is essential....HOWEVER.....most well bred dogs...with any legitimate ammount of "active agression" will usually learn this ..even by "mistake"....simply by coming to a familiar local...and experiencing exciting events...One of my favotite tests is to walk down a quite street...and tell my dog to attack a "sleeping" man lying down on a bench......most dogs WONT do it...and it takes some particular and well timed re-inforcments to make this CLEAR to the dog...ON A FIELD?...WITH BLINDS?...and SUITS AND SLEEVES?...most dogs will be excited...even if the training has been only partly correct....this is MY experience....although I havent been doing this very long....and really dont know much about it....
