Gate Drills at Canine to Five Detroit
Over the past month you may have noticed our staff performing drills with the dogs at pick-up time. During gate drills, dogs are asked to sit behind a line while the handlers let out dogs that are being picked up. You may also notice that during the gate drills our handlers use body blocking on dogs that cross over the line. We find body blocking to be the most effective way to keep a pack of dogs from entering an area that we do not want them to enter. Having control over the dogs helps prevent injury and ensures safety in the pack. Below are some of our playroom staff performing these drills.
