In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:
The mechanics of a good bite.
Picking the correct sleeves for the level of the dog.
How a sleeve can be used in other types of training.
Getting the correct equipment, even if it is means going to different manufacturers to get the different types of equipment.
Dogs that are taught to push, instead of pull, when encountering stress are going to be more successful in a street fight.
Everything is a piece of equipment – sleeves, bite suits, hidden sleeves, etc.
As a trainer, be aware of where the dog needs to start and don’t go backwards in your progressions.
Make the problem of where to bite easier for the dog to avoid choice paralysis – don’t be in a hurry to get on a bite suit if the dog’s not ready yet.
“Sleeves are designed to teach the mechanics of biting.“ — Jerry Bradshaw
