005: Grip Training- Part 1

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • Why is Grip important?
  • What are firm, full and hard grips?
  • How does progressive resistance work on grip?
  • Differences and similarities between sport dog and police dog grip training.

Key Takeaways:

  • When a police dog bites you it is shocking and will help bring someone down.
  • Environment/Training matters when training a dog to grip, not just “genetics.”
  • Use opposition reflex training as part of teaching grip.
  • Don’t let your dog develop bad griping habits.

When the dog feels the burning in his mouth he wants to take the first opportunity to get to a better grip position. —  Jerry Bradshaw
