    Mike we thought of giving it a go of me holding on to him and running him to the car with the bite wedge… it worked. (Instead of tying him to the pole due to Tazer being able to pull me over.) Trainer believes when a dog carry is the day the dog has started to enjoy bitework. He is sure we can now fix the problem. I’ll send a update video after the next training session.

    The video looks like like a good plan. It is all very prey orientated for sure which is good. My advice would be to see if Tazer steadily increases in intensity and keep track of how excited he gets to do “bite work”. If this is on the rise I would stick with the current plan. If it starts to plateau you may go with increasing the competition by introducing a second dog to compete over the tugs/wedges/etc.. This can sometimes increase the intensity.
