DEFENCE TRAINING 
After this KNPV spectacle, we return to the IPO program to see how the distance search is done.
ATTACK ON THE DOG OUT OF A MOVEMENT
Diego v Marija’s Hoeve, Attack at Distance searching Owner: Richard Venzelaar
Jan Scheele en Arie vom Domburgerland, Searching. Owner: Jacques Suurmond
After finishing the exercise in BACK TRANSPORT, the handler takes the dog (without a leash) to the imaginary centre line of the training field, at the position of the 3rd blind and takes his position (dog at heel). Meanwhile a biteworker has positioned himself in the 1st blind, and walks, after a sign of the sampler, calmly in the direction of the handler and the dog. As soon as the biteworker has approached the handler and the dog (still sitting at heel without a leash) up to a distance of approx. 30 steps, the handler tells the dog to search the biteworker. At the same time, the biteworker goes into the attack, meanwhile threatening with the stick and his voice.

The dog must bite powerful and dynamic without any hesitation, and without being influenced by the attack. Once the dog has bitten, he gets 2 hits with the stick on less sensitive parts of his body. After an indication of the sampler the biteworker stops his attack and the dog must let go of the biteworker after the single command LET GO, and guard him closely and attentive.
DOG DEFENDING OUT OF GUARDING POSITION
After a guarding time of approx. 5 seconds, the biteworker attempts another attack on the dog. Without interference of the handler the dog must defend itself by biting directly, without any hesitation whatsoever. Once the dog has bitten, he gets 2 hits with the stick on less sensitive parts of his body. After an indication of the sampler the biteworker stops his attack and the dog must let go of the biteworker after the single command LET GO, and guard him closely and attentive. After this, the handler will go to his dog after a sign of the sampler, disarms the biteworker, commands the dog at heel and prepares for side transport.

After this, a side transport follows to the sampler over a distance of approx. 20 steps. After arriving at the sampler, the side transport ends and the handler gives the stick to the sampler and signs out. After this the biteworker exits the training field.
With this I close the IPO part to move on to the following KNPV parts.
