Prey Drive

Prey Drive

Prey drive is inherent. Your dog is born with it. He can hunt and kill.

We work with puppies on prey drive as soon as they show interest in following a ball or a tug. The same drive applies to a moving toy or a Helper’s sleeve.

Prey drive is used to build confidence and a full bite. When working with dogs on confidence, please remember that longer distance between the dog and a Helper is empowering and shorter distance can be threatening. Start with a ball on a string allowing plenty of space for the dog to become comfortable.

Please consider using a soft ball or a tug for a puppy to help them be successful.

Please follow the steps on the left how to start with the green dog. How to switch to a bite pillow or a short sleeve and how to be able to control your dog. No reason to have a fancy sports car without any breaks.
