Part 3 - Why Force to a Pile is Flawed and Unfair


After many years of doing Force to a Pile with hundreds of dogs, I decided to make significant changes to the procedure. Doing so allowed me to create a fairer experience for the dog that maintained a good attitude and better prepared the dog for real-world situations.

This webinar reviews how, and why, I've made changes to the drill. Enjoy!
