  1. Great philosophy. Dogs are like human kids. Set boundaries, goals, and the rewards will be great. Looking forward to your next podcast.

  2. Trainers – if your gut says this is not your style, you don’t like the treatment or methodology – then take your dog and walk away.

    Tis true about breeding – show vs field quality dog but once in a while there will be that show dog who ends up with all the marbles.

    There is testing that can be done to evaluate a puppy’s qualities. There are puppy enrichment techniques that can bring a litter along beautifully, well balanced and enriches the working and sociability characteristics. Read up on this, seek out breeders who take time to enrich their puppies.
