Heres an old vid thought id share of me and my gsd ablof. He's retired now but had lots of fun training him and learning from him. Super super dog with great drives and gentics perfert for what a gsd should be and act. Thats not just me sayn , but alot of high level trainers thats seen him and worked him. Anyways here it is , after looking at it again and my not so great handeling at the time it made me laugh. All comments good or bad are welcome.. and remember it was just a training session.

SUPER nice. forges a bit, but real good picture. how far did you compete with him? Did your spotter have the e collar? Who do you train with now?
Thannks Peter ! yea he did forge a bit and bumped on that day. Like everybody we had a bad,ok and really good training days where everything was spot on ,no problems, worked in perfect harmony and i just wanted to train all day. I did the usa nationals with him and had planned to do more naitonal stuff in "hopes" of trying to make the world team. But work and time just didnt permit. Yes my spotter/trainer has the remote and i dont really train that much anymore after retiring blof and start my own company and tiime is even more restricted now.
How you doing ? and any up coming things with your dog?
Super busy with work as well. We just finished hosting seminar with Jogi Zank and it was very intense. Fun but intense.
I qualified for nationals this year, with enough points, so I will try. Time is the real issue. plus I have another dog coming up. He is a very steady dog and different fields have no issue with him so real happy with him so far. sharp dog, but we deal with this.
Other dog is young but I think really talented in terms of the system Zank uses. Too much drive sometimes is not good. LOL.
Too much work getting in the way of enjoying my dogs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dude, one day, I will go back to a bulldog. Just trying to find one with enough handler hardness is going to be hard but one day..........I dream! Still love the american bulldog buddy. Wish I had Chucky as a pup. This dog would have done well with Lance Collins system. Miss this dog alot.
