There's definately some good work here and I wouldn't call it sport per say but it is exploiting desire in the dogs.
I like that last little dog.
You can see by his shit eatin grin in the end....he does work hard. He wants to bite and he means it..but he gives compliance. I appreciate the calmness on the verge of exploding.
Good example of that I jus wish a nice dog like that had a little more leg on him. He's cool though.
Nothing over the top, nothing really exaggerated and the dog over the fence gets two thumbs up from me!
The handler help really is unnessesary but I think it makes the handler feel more comfortable. The dogs look pretty dang stable which is nice. Wish a few had some more athleticism and speed but they are bully dogs, that's what they are. The white dog n fawn dog are pretty quick though!
Am I trippin or at 2:10 does the dog not turn around before the command. Is the audio out of synch?? or is the dog reading the decoy from anticipation? nope its the synch i see.
I definately like the control. The silent but deadly style is just as effective. Some of these dogs are really focused and clear.
at 3:46 you see what all the control does for the grip. 5:00 nice dog nice work solid nerves and taking things seriously. Some of the work these guys are doing is pretty good. Bringing out a lot of confidence in the dogs=good thing.
Snopes ob isnt pretty and sporty it's that classic compulsion look sport people frown on, and I admit it doesn't look like the dog is stoked on what it's doing...but the dog deos perform that's for sure. He is sleeve focused and I woulnd't say he wants to hurt the man.
man that was close at 1:30 I wonder if the furry has dog aggression lol
Not that the dog has to be happy, but some enthusiasm or desire for the work should be there. I was all compulsion on my 1st dogs and the ob looked just like this often.
The control is a plus and for apbt this really shows how compliant they can be contrary to their desire to bite.
Gotta give these guys props for putting time in..I'm sure they are doing their best and progressing.
