DOGs

Post by jcdenton » 27 Apr 2007, 20:39

have you ever tried practicing with dogs?
take one young, agile, quick, ball hungry dog and try dribbling him...
it's really exhausting, but VERY helpful, makes good simulation of quick opponent with good reflexes...

Yeah its quite amazing how the dog cannot easily be beaten. It will follow the ball very closely and when u do get passed it, its a pretty good accomplishent. Dogs are no fools and i guess practicing with one could be beneficial.

well, one thing that Serb and Croatian agree :)

the point is that you cannot actually nutmeg the dog, because it always comes back quickly, you cannot easily run past him also...
so far the only 100% efficient trick was rainbow, but it's not fair, dog complains when you do that...
the dog i'm practicing with bites when you play unfair, it's so smart... :D

o man that is a really smart dog. also helps to break an unfair players habit....you think we can hook up c.ronaldo with that dog? :lol:

anyways, i'm not really a dog guy, i don't like them, kind of have a fear of getting bit by them so i don't think it would work, but i can see howit could make you better and quicker

I tried this tonight with my dog. He was a world class defender :P .

... that only lasted about 5 minutes though. He got tired, got a drink, and decided to chew on a huge bone we gave him. :lol:

I love dogs.

How do you get your dog to try and defend? Whenever I try my dog runs away because he doesn't want to get in my way, haha. I want him to do the opposite!
