You are not understanding this post. I was talking about play drive not at the helper but at you. It is the interaction of a toy involving you and the dog. I think it would be stupid to use play dive at a helper and that would serve no purpose.
You say you do not teach play drive so does that mean you do not play with your dog? No play of tug after Ob? You obviously missed the point of this thread.
I thought you did not like pet people forums? This one is full of them, interesting you joined this one.......
