“Fighter”?

Have you ever heard the term “fighter” to describe a dog at the track?

A “fighter” is one who would rather play with the other dogs in the race instead of chasing the artificial lure.
It can be if they physically interfere with the other dogs, but isn’t always.

Service Dog Mall Training

Service dogs “in training” at the mall.

When the veteran is going to be sitting for a long period of time they are taught the “down” command and then “relax”. This means they turn on their side and totally relax. It gives them the signal that they have time to get in a good rest before the veteran will need them again.

Unofficial Schooling?

Unofficial Schooling takes place in the morning on the track before the day’s races. Initially the pups are hand-slipped so that the trainers can see how they are running and if they are following the lure.

If that goes well they then run out of the starting box, first in pairs, working up to running in groups of four or five. This continues until the trainer feels the pup is ready for Official Schooling.
