    Hello Mike, Tazer is making good progress with each training session we do and his defense drive has now began to move more towards being prey. We may have also discovered another issue that he has and we think it could be separation anxiety. Tazer at times would be pushing me with his backhind when his in front of me, regardless to who his barking at.(Decoy or at strangers approaching us at home or out). We weren’t sure why he was doing this. We decided to tye Tazer to a pole by himself and I would move out of his eye sight. The decoy couldn’t get his attention and could even stand along side of him without Tazer reacting as he was more concern at looking to see where I could be. It seems that I could be one of the triggers for him to react. My husband is going to give it a go at being Tazer handler at the next training session so we can see what Tazer will do without me. What is your outlook on Tazer behaviour?
