Mati is looking through the SPORT viewer of dog training. Repetition is required to perfect a SPORT routine such as SchH. What Donovan is saying and I agree w/to a DEGREE is; too much training teaches the dog that the work is not real.
IME, to prep for real protection work; exposure, testing and proofing are critical [none of which are done in SchH]and repetition is potentially counter productive. A shitty decoy can teach a dog almost instantly that the training is a game. There are very few decoys who can convey any realness to a dog.
There are some dogs though which will kill ur ass despite knowing that the training's just training
but again... most of them don't do well in sleeve sport.
