Defense training for dogs, survival holidays abroad - Try Out

Let me discuss the principles which should be understood before actually getting into training techniques. Defense behavior appears in two forms; active defense (forward=aggression, biting) and passive defense (backwards=avoidance). Both forms are triggered by the same stimuli: threatening (physical or psychological), staring, and open aggression. Which of the two forms of defense the dog will show depends on several factors: confidence and maturity of aggressor vs. With those concepts in mind we can start to try and stimulate defensive "feelings" in the dog during protection training. Of course this is only possible if the prey drive training we have done so far has been successful. The helper, now more and more the focus of the dog, is still advancing forward and the dog will experience a bit of a worried feeling. I train the remaining portion of defense drive promotion very close to the same schedule as described in Helmut Raiser's book.
I like to do this type of training away from the regular training grounds for a couple of reasons. This is again a form of channelling defense behavior into prey drive, and like I said earlier I'll describe that in more detail later. Dogs will learn that biting is the route to success, and we have an avenue to start working dogs who didn't get very far during prey drive promotion. Dogs who have absolutely no prey desire but very strong defense drive usually start biting OK after these steps. There is a good possibility that the dog will develop a bit of a "bite first ask questions later" attitude with this type of training.


Let me congratulate you on two awesome videos, "The First Steps of Bite" and "The First Steps of Defense." I learned so much and realized how many mistakes I have made.
This tape is going to go into a great deal of detail on exactly what defense is - and is not. There is a section describing what kind of dogs can be trained in defense and what type of dog should not be trained. There is a section describing how to figure out when a particular dog is mature enough to start defensive training. We go into detail on where to do the training, who should do the training and what to do before the training takes place to make sure that the trainer has a dog that is safe to be around. We explain the training steps to maintain intensity and forward movement in grip development for both sport dogs and police service dogs (the training is a little different for both). In conclusion, you have again succeeded in training me how to train my dog more intelligently and effectively in very critical and misunderstood area. This is better than attending a class, because in 2 or 3 weeks I'll have forgotten most of the class instruction; with your tapes, I can go back over parts I am having trouble with and go out for more effective overall training. There is no situation where a 4 month old dog should ever be exposed to defensive training.
This is evident by going to any Schutzhund trial or looking at half of the Police Service dogs in this country. Many experienced trainers get caught up in traditional sport dog training, which is weak in the defensive areas of training. We teach the dog that "it can make things happen if it switches gears and raises the INTENSITY and forward movement in its' bite work" The dog learns that real aggression has the ability to make things happen.
Trainers need to have a clear cut understanding of how to train in prey and how to recognize all of the subtle signs of avoidance before they attempt defensive work.


The problem solving sections helps them recover from errors but the video goes into detail explaining the inherent dangers of defensive training. Then you put all the parts together, again with clear examples, demonstrating even to the novice, like myself, the defense concept with a training plan.
It seems every time I view them I pick up on something I missed and when applied I see even better results in my training. This video will help all trainers recognize and get a dog started in the training of its defensive drive. I do not recommend this training be attempted until the handler and helper understand all of the work in my tape title The First Steps of Bite Training. I never knew until this training tape just how important the defense part of the work is, and not to get ahead of myself with a young developing dog. The goal of the training is to bring a young dog further along in its fight drive development.
When a dog is mature enough to begin defensive training we will teach the dog that the helper is not just the motor behind the prey but rather a fighting partner. In fact, the helper is someone that can hurt the dog and it should forever approach protection work in a different light.
If you have a question on what a counter is and how to induce a counter, refer to my videos titled Bite Training for Puppies or The First Steps of Bite Training.
