Great pics and descriptions. Sounds like you go to a good place for training. I've been to some training where I wasn't very impressed. Your trainer knows the exact steps to take to get the required result. Keep us updated on his progress.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Barb, it's pretty cool having these guys. They are willing to do whatever you want with your dog, but I'm taking baby steps with Gunnar. I see another guy who is pushing his dog too far to fast and the dog shuts down all the time. He wants to go from step 1 to 10 and not take 2-9 in the middle, and you can see it. He started a few months before we did and Gunnar is way ahead of his dog now, because we're going slow.

I also have another guy I try to go to during the week, and he's real good too. His philosophy is a bit different but it's all about fundamentals too.

I'm behind, forgive me. What is Gunnar's future career? He looks good, btw.

Oohhhhh I'm envious! He looks like he's having a blast! Unfortunately the only Schutzhund trainers around here either only work with GSDs and Mals, or says "there's no room for love in the life of a Schutzhund dog". Grargh.

We demand more pics!

i very much believe in letting the dog set the pace. move to the next stage of training when he's ready, not because you want to, and there's nothing wrong with going back a step or two also as needed.

nice work with gunnar.

Mindy, he doesn't have a career per se'. We're just giving him new challenges to keep him excited about training. With this protection training, my goal is to have him reliable and dependable because he understands how to evaluate a threat, how to react if someone comes after me or my wife, and how to lay off if the threat subsides.

Sizzle, we're not doing schutzhund, though there are elements of it in our training. I disagree that a schutzhund can't be a pet with a loving family. I know plenty of K9 officers who take their dogs home to their families every night. Real working dogs, not dogs that go out on the same field and run through a choreographed routine once or twice a week.

I'm hoping to get some more video soon. Next week we're going to let him do an area search since the fundamentals of the exercise will be the same, he'll just have a longer distance to go and have to find the decoy. I'll try and get someone to video that for me.
