I presume that trainer went down.
His right foot is already partially up in the air and the angle of his body is totally off of a balanced center position.
With a 100+# push, he should have tumbled over backwards easily.
Nice picture by the way. Looks like he bit into the left arm too.
Again, left foot totally off the ground and whole body is in a forward freefall.
Really good picture of the decoy going down, but not much of a picture of your dog!
In PSA, a dog can be a leg dog or upper body dog and you have to tell the judge which one the dog is before you trial. Geist is an upper body dog and 99% of the time, his target will be the left bicep. Exceptions are flee attacks where he will bite the tricep or back, and there is a fend off scenario where the dog blocks the dog from biting the upper body with various objects and the dog has to bite the leg.
Yes, your odds are good with that much training. You are already well on turn way to passing level 2.
The trainer is Chip. The person who catches the bite is called a Decoy.
In PSA your dog can pick the body area to attack?
Look at those teeth. Fierce.
He will be five in mid January. In PSA, you have to tell the judge if your dog is a leg dog or upper body dog. If the dog is a leg dog, he can bite anywhere on the leg and typically dogs bite just below or above the knee with the head on the outside off the leg unless it is a flee bite where they bite the back of the leg. Upper body dogs always bite the left bicep unless it is a flee bite and then they bite the tricep or back. In the fend off scenario in level 2, the decoy tries to block the dog from biting the upper body, forcing the dog the bite the leg. The other exceptions are in the carjacking scenario in the PDC and level 1 where the dog is in the passenger side of a vehicle and bites a hidden sleeve on the forearm when the decoy attacks the dog through the window. There is also a sleeve division in the PDC for weaker dogs that won't bite a suit, but it is only in the PDC and if they pass the PDC, they can't go on to the next level.
