These training tools come in handy during the long adolescent phase in some dogs, which usually lasts from about 10 to 18 months of age. This publication will explain the benefits and use of dangle sticks and drags for LGDs, and give the reader in-depth directions for how to build dangle sticks and drags-including all of the materials that will be needed.
