Can you see the differens?
Find the differences between the two dogs. Both dogs are tested (PADA TEST) in the same situation and conditions. In the video you will see two different parts of the PADA test, the rough hand and the playing. The PADA test consist of 16 parts, this is two of them.
Look closely at the dogs signals...
Where one dog stiffens, the other remains loose in the body. The miniature aussie deviates from the handler where the poodle allows the touch and bends his body towards the handler
In addition, the miniature aussie gives signals such as looking away, tonguing and panting.
In the play section, you will see that the poodle moves along with the game and is still loose in its body. The miniature aussie remains facing backwards during gameplay and keeps his distance during gameplay. In addition, the Aussie remains attentive to its environment
The Miniature Aussie is a great house dog but won't be able to feel as free as the Poodle which is definitely suited to further training in AAI.
