As a decoy, you have lots of options available to you when it comes to bite suit selection. There are big brands that I am sure you have seen around for many years, and probably worked in before. Demanet bites suits (along with a couple other brands) are light years ahead of our competitors in both protection and mobility.
A Demanet bite suit is made with a proprietary blend that allows us to create a suit that is incredibly light for the level of protection it provides. Demanet offers four primary levels of bite suits. Training weight (offering the greatest protection), semi-training, semi-competition, and competition weight. There are a variety of reason why you may pick one suit over another (we will get into those in tomorrows post), but the key is selecting the right bite suit for the job.
Another unique advantage that Demanet bite suits offer is incredible tailoring. Our most popular cut is what we call a French cut. This suit was originally designed for the sport of French Ring, but offers tremendous advantages in other sports and police/military k9 work. Once you have selected the appropriate cut, we provide a measurement work sheet that allows us to build a bite suit that fits you like a glove. No more baggy neck lines, long sleeves, short mid-sections, bulky pants, or loose material. You can expect your Demanet bite suit to fit better than most any piece of clothing you have.
A properly fitted suit, that is the appropriate weight will allow you to take your training to new heights. Gone are the days of dogs just grabbing material. We want the dog to find and feel the man. In a tailored suit the dog has the ability to get a full grip every time. You as the decoy will have the ability to move more naturally, making it easier to manipulate the dog and focus on technique, rather than trying to find your balance, and struggling to move.
As a quick summary, the two most critical elements are 1) getting a perfectly tailored suit 2) picking the right weight for your work and skill level. If you have questions about either of these things, please call us at 513-315-8002 (or email at firstname.lastname@example.org). We are professional decoys with expertise in French Ring, PSA, police dog training, military dog training, and protection dog training. We will be happy to walk you through the process to get exactly the right suit for you!
