the godfather of tug in my opinion
Forrest Mickey, trained by Ellis, also does it very well. Does a great IPO training on line DVD, to purchase or stream.
I have a bc nutter pup. And self control, with flirt was my goal. But we are many steps behind the actual flirt. He's unwilling to work, unless its a new green ball, my MISS biatch, has never slavered on. A virgin toy. So im back there, building engagement, and interactive play.
my gsd pup, loves flirt, tug, and will out, wait, rebite, out, drop, rebite, retrieve, etc etc all day if you want. She has no idea we are training self control. Everything needs her to control herself when working. So has to sit/wait till i open gate and release her onto her ball etc.
My kind of training is all in drive.
The dogs come to love doing the behaviours. (although jury is still out on my bc). Behaviour is under appetitive motivation, and a self fulfilling prophecy. Win/Win
I detest any dog training, that involves me following other people, all practicing the same behaviour as a class. Antithesis of what my preference is at.
