Releasing or Baiting?

Post by Harry on Thu Dec 08, 2011 7:21 pm

When doing events like Long Jump or Speed Pull with your dogs, do you prefer to be the person releasing the dog or the person encouraging him to come at you?

I've released a few dogs, Keiser (<3), Hank (<3), Kingston, Brock, Butch (<3) and I think one or two others as well. I like doing that job, but I think when I'm doing it with my own dog I'd prefer to be the person at the other end.

Which do you like to do?

All depends on the event. Lure.... I love letting Hank go cos I can rev him up and know I can hold him at the same time. Next year I am hoping to try releasing Hank on the speed pull too and have somone baiting him with a flirt pole but its not an easy job either end with Hank. It is hard to keep him in his harness if I torment him with the flirt pole and then run up the field the poor sod that is holding him as a hard time at the release end. Saying that I haven't an easy job catching him at the other end because you have to give him the flirt pole or jolly ball it can be scary watching him running straight at you with that S/P sled behind him lol. I suppose the hardest job all round is the catcher so I would prefere to catch Hank except in the Lure.

Nice post Jules. Some dogs do much better with their owners, some don't have any interest in other people at all... *cough*Butch*cough * (Mammy's boy! lol!)

I still am yet to see any speed pulling, I've been to 4 Events and missed the proper thing EVERY time, or it wasn't on at all Laughing

That will all change when "The Blue Beast" is dominating the show! lol!

You can have Lure and Long Jump, I'll take Speed Pull and A-Frame lol!

Knowing my luck, Eddie will be pure sh*te lol.

He's started on the Spingpole now tho, and Flirt pole too and I think he's pretty high drive, a lot more than I'm used to round here anyway Laughing

the flirt pole is a great way to get them going but make sure he catches it now and again and make a huge fuss when he does. I use home made ones a bit of a branch with a tissue on the end and let Hank have it at the end of play. Once he breaks the stick he usually leaves it and goes on to something else. I have a shed full of them every week I go up the roads tearing down the hedges looking for long sticks lol lol

lol excuse me mr if anyone puts a peace of anything into their hands butch will work for them lol did you not work butch on the a-frame harry?? lol lol lol

id rather let go my dogs at the lure, jules and i were only talking about this earlier and its actually better if the owner releases if your having a group race, the reasons being if you are waiting at the top to catch your dog you tend to watch out for your own dog while some may pass you, if you release your dog then other people at the top tend to just grab any dog that comes to them and thats the trick. if doing speed pull id rather bate him and same with the long jump etc.

We got loads of new activity's to introduce to the association for next year and you will be spoiled for choice with tug of war, weight lift and the weight pull Wink so we have lots of work to do but were all really looking forward to it.
