I don’t have an answer for why they threw the dog over the counter. There IS without a doubt a sleeve on the guy’s gun hand. I worked a dog on a bite sleeve last night, so I am pretty aware of what a hidden sleeve looks like.
By the way, the dog had a very poor grip. They should bite with a full mouth and hold. He wouldn’t have pulled away from my 11 mo old malinois like that. Just saying.
On repeated viewing I’ll agree with you it was some lame training attempt.
I didn’t catch it was a gun store. Pretty rare for criminals to hold up a gun store with all the armed clerks. So OK, I’ll buy it was a training attempt. A worthless one. The guy is an idiot to throw his dog over the counter. If he wants to train his dog to jump over the counter, he needs to get the dog trained to do that before training the dog to jump the counter in pursuit of a fleeing perp.
Guy is an idiot. That training will be worthless.
