    You toss it over their head. There is still a reward but water is what turns the pressure off. As the drill continues you make the dog swim further and further before they get the reward. By the end...

    So in Lardy's method when forcing a dog on water during swim by does the pressure not turn off when the dog enters the water? If so you are teaching the dog to seek water to turn off pressure.

    Good restraint. You could have obliged her by letting that poor dog out while she was at the height of her aggressive behavior. ;)

    As with anything else it is a balancing act. The dog needs to learn momentum but they also need to learn to cast. In my mind from the dogs perspective the more you stop them the more confused they...

    Some good suggestions. You can also try pulling your weenie out. I mean, give your dog a treat. He has to give up the bumper for the food.
