One of our helpers was working a very well trained pit today and moved from a sleeve to a targeting wedge He let his concentration lapse and didn't keep his arms behind the wedge. The dog went for the wedge but got a mouth full of arm instead. Both the helper and animal were surprised, and the dog realized that the bite didn't "feel" right and released his grip immediately without an out command from its handler. While pressure was applied, the animal exhibited amazing and fast bite inhibition once it realized it had flesh, not jute, in its mouth. Helper had a couple of small, shallow puncture wounds in his arm, but nothing major. It is amazing the amount of discipline a well-trained animal is capable of exhibiting. Both helper and dog continued with the training session, and no major injuries.
