This video shows how Bernhard teaches people to bring their dog up to its genetic potential of drive (every dog has it’s own potential for drive). It’s through “drive training” that the relationship between the handler and dog is established.
Many people think that just because their dog comes from super bloodlines it should have super drive. These people are wrong. Dogs don’t suddenly wake up one morning and have a ton of drive. Building drive takes hard work and skill. Building drive is a learned exercise in dog training. If you don't work on building your dogs drive it will dissipate and go away.In the past 10 years training concepts and methods have changed.In my opinion marker training (read my free ebook on markers) has taken over the world of dog training and this video does not involve markers. I continue to offer the DVD because it does have merit as a different form of dog training.
The majority of the work in this DVD uses a ball-on-string as a reward. Ten years after producing this video I no longer feel that a ball-on-a-string is an appropriate reward for young untrained dog.
Balls-on-string can be used an effective obedience reward but only after a dog has reached a certain level training:
1- The dog must tug with enthusiasm
2- It must OUT when told to OUT on the first command
3- It must willingly return the ball to the handler after the ball has been released
He is a German police officer and Schutzhund competitor. While the training concepts in this DVD came from seminars with Bernhard, the content of this DVD, the script for this DVD and all of the video and editing for the DVD was done by Ed Frawley. Bernhard had nothing to do with the production or content of this training video. Bernhard lives in Northern Germany and speaks perfect English. He has been in the German Bundesseigerprufung (BSP) six times. On three of those occasions he had the highest scoring protection dog in the competition on the 4th Bundessieger he had the second highest scoring dog in protection. He has had two SG scores (very good) with his current dog Itor. In 2002 Itor finished 13th in the competition.Bernhard claims the video “Building Drive & Focus” is the foundation of his training program. Bernhard feels this work is the beginning of his competitive obedience training along with start of the foundation for his protection training program.
