Re: PREASURE ??? What is it to you? ...YES, I AM ASKING YOU
One thing that always cracks me up is when pp people say that sport dogs are not real and are just prey. But i cant blame em cause, theyve prob just seen poor club level dogs and training, which is about 90% of the clubs. This is one of those threads that cant be explained in person and def not thru a compu, you have to see it in person or even better do it. High Level sch dogs meaning national level and higher MUST have real aggression and power to get a V score in protection. A dog could do everything perfect in the protect phase, good grips, good blind search everything.. but without the power and real fight.. it will be sg 90pts all day. The judges will see this..most in the stands wont even know what understand it. The good Malis have high prey aggression and trying to cap that power with ob, is what causes them to blow a gasket and break or get handler aggressive. Pressure is from the compulsion training to get/tame this crazy dog to behave and do the excercise perfect. Main reason why malis blow ther minds is nerves, the gsds have much better nerves, they are harder and can handle alot pressure. I guess think of a F1 car going 200 mph down the straight away and making a turn at 180.. control..control.control. It takes blood, sweat and tears to do it perfect with a high drive dog with real power. I say this not from guesses, this is from experience.. this stuff is a true art form and most will never understand til you've done it with the real trainers/masters.
