    The biting the sleeve is part of the prey drive of a dog. Really basically it is very similiar to playing with tug toys with your dog. In the early stages of training the dog is given a wassels (tug toy) as a reward. There are many tests of the dog's character before any bite work is done. A shy or aggressive dog is not allowed to join most clubs.
    Here is a link if you want to read more.

    I wasnt aware it was banned in Victoria? Are we definate about that?
    I had been keen, but the bite work is not something i need in a pet. But i do love the results from training in drive! The dogs are 'lit' up, every command is at light speed. Lush.

    If you check the schutzhund link you will see there is a club in Victoria so I am not sure if it is banned. It really is amazing to see the dogs work. After only 2 weeks of training my dog has her drive back after doing stupid training with a check collar!!! The bite work is not mandatory but a schutzhund club member should understand and respect all aspects of schutzhund even if they do not have their own dog doing bite work.

    Actually the Victoria club is inactive so maybe it is banned.

    Woot I think thats awesome, I often regret not going. I probably would have went all levels except bitework too.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.

    I found two victorian clubs or maybe three. One of them had "inactive" next to it, another had closed membership. I guess they attract a fair number of idiots that the club members could do without.

    it seems to be called sportdog too. involves a combination of tracking and agility as best I can tell. couldn't find anything that said it was banned. Might be in their dog and cat management law, I haven't looked at the Victorian stuff.
