Yeah, we get you don't think too much of HRC marks, from your previous posts, but is that kind of remark really necessary here? Why take something away from a guy trying to learn to run his dog in his chosen venue. Critique his handling or whatever, but there's no need to denigrate anything else.
Interesting...Did we watch the same video? I didn't see or hear anything which I felt was intimidating to the dog by Jason.I think the dog did great...the handler was an impediment.
Seems to me nearly everything the handler did was meant to intimidate the dog. From how he crowded Hank with his knee, his commands, how he took the duck, the sit stick....
Wayne, I've watched your videos of Hank (by Pirate) and I don't see a reason for him to be treated in that fashion.
But I don't know nothing....
And Hank and his owner are running a Started HRC test. looks to me that Wayne has done a nice job with Hank, he appears to be trained above the level he is running, the way it should be. It appears your pretty new to all of this and have been hanging and working the past few weekends at your trials, it's easy to look at SHR singles as EASY marks compared to derby marks, Started dogs are not derby dogs. Those easy singles might not mean alot to you but to a first time handler and most likely the trainer of the dog up to this point, there huge.
Yes, I SEE intimidation. I didn't say the dog was intimidated by it. He wasn't.As far as intimidation,,,
Again turn the sound off, and look at the body english of the dog and then tell Gooser the handler intimidated the animal.....
You SEEEEEE intimidation,,,, Ya dont here it.
Yes I SEE intimidation. I didn't say the dog was intimidated by it.
Maybe it wasn't the handlers intent to intimidate the dog....but I saw it and heard it...
