That’s a beautiful jump. Nice pictures.
Hind legs up really high... nice jump!
This is a fleeing apprehension bite and part of a PSA 2 scenario.
OMG: He's huge... I had no idea of his size in the jump picture you showed earlier.
And he comes up from behind too... opposite of where the weapon is.
With that size and weight, he could probably flip that trainer on his back in no time. LOL
I sure wouldn't want to be his trainer!!! (* CHUCKLE *)
He is a long dog and is 26+" at the withers. He got up to 130 pounds but was too heavy and he now weighs just over 100#'s. He is very fast and agile for his size. He is also a very well muscled dog, especially his pelvic mass, which I believe helps the hips. His hips and elbows are OFA certified good/normal.
He is in training for our PSA 2 title and the weapon hand is a non issue in sport.
Chip is his trainer. PSA is a protection sport that is more difficult than IPO/Schutzhund which you’ve probably heard of. It offers more realistic scenarios and you can’t practice for all of them so you can’t teach the test. IPO allows people to bring along less capable dogs, although it’s still challenging and dogs that earn an IPO can be very well trained.
