Not a problem, I looked up the website on the watermark, do you take part in the weight pull?

I noticed that you use a lure for weight pulling, that is considered an incorrect way to have a dog pull over here (England), however I did notice on the weightpull.lt website that there is a class for handlers & dogs that do not use a lure (Pro), would you agree that although it takes longer to train, dogs pull more efficiently when not coaxed forward with a lure, as there is less chance of a slingshot..

Be interested in seeing your views.

Yes, in Lithuania, like everywhere else, there is standart class (with bait/toy) and pro class, when dog is pulling with command. Kyro, at this time, is not interested in pulling without toy. No motivation at all.. Summer is season of shows, so I don't want to changge anything. After this season I will start to train him with lighter weight and without toy, to we will try to go to pro class :)

When we do chain pulling, I do not use bait, but still, sometimes he loose motivation and looks for toy.. Snacks, no matter how tasty they are, is not a motivation for him.. So I think, in the beggining I will try to use bait only in the end, like a reward, and than try to take bait off..

Yes reward after is fine, but to encourage to pull is never a good idea, I would try & ween him of baiting as soon as you possibly can as it teaches bad habits, look forward to seeing some progress photos, also an unbaited dog can take part in UPF pulls in Germany & France, also the EWPL pulls in Denmark & Sweden
