                                             This is how we develope a pup's bite work

Below is a video of Mike Karlov's young female pup under one year of age, Frankie. Trainer is Mark Boggs. This pup has never seen or been worked in the "cage" before. The cage is designed to introduce a puppy to a new degree of both pressure and environmental stress. The pressure and stress M-U-S-T be applied ONLY by a very experienced trainer that can read exactly how much the pup can take. Too much can ruin a pup. Much depends on the pup's genetics and its protection training up to the point of being introduced to this training situation. Here, this first-time pup does extremely well. Most likely Frankie will be able to be taught to continue developing into a protection sport dog that is not just sleeve happy, enjoying what is perceived to be a game, but will react as a true guardian should the situation arise. Such a dog should not react with the fight, flight or freeze syndrome. It should act with a clear head meeting the threat head-on while being controllable by its master. 

Note that both handler and trainer give the pup strong encouragement. When the pup is first working atop the crate and begins to show nervousness both handler and trainer soothe the dog, as is done throughout the session, to help her along. The trainer first steadies the crate then as she gains composure the trainer moves the crate as the pup holds its grip. This teaches her to get used to holding a grip while on a moving surface. The floor of the cage contains plastic items so there should be no injury. Even the metal door to the crate has been removed. After the session, the dog's tail is wagging and she looks back for more. A great start for future advancement as a complete package.
