No German Shepherds???

I thought that they were pretty much the most commonly found breed in the
western world, and I know from this and other lists that there are plenty of
them, and that they are a breed that is very much loved by American people.

I notice no weims either (getting all excited as our little girl should be
coming home in 5 weeks time and the big shop has begun!)

Congratulations! No, we don't see too many weims here.


I got some new piccies of our girl this morning, @ 13 days old... check out
Cindy at 13 days ~ so 'snuffilicious'!

keep the tail too!

However, I've only had three pit bulls in classes, as opposed to 13 labs.
That's pretty sad.



unfortunately, many of the people with pit bulls don't think they need
socialization or group training. hell, a lot of the pits i've met have had
no training whatsoever.

it is sad. how are you supposed to be a breed ambassador with an untrained
dog?

That doesn't suprise me at all. I almost never
get a GSD enrolled in the classes I teach through
local parks departments, but my other group
classes are full of them. As are classes at local dog training clubs
and with other training
schools. I believe that's because people who are
drawn to GSDs expect to make a long term committment to training and
research trainers at
the same time they are selecting their dog. The
students who enroll at Leah's PetSmart classes are probably much like
those in my parks dept. classes - looking for convenience in a
training venue and committed only to 1 or 2 8 week sessions.

There are some dogs in the classes I don't think I can count because I had
trouble with their owners. They were the cases where they could not or

would
not follow instruction and strongly resisted help. Included are the
know-it-alls and the ones who were sure their dogs were doing bad things

out
of spite no matter what I said differently. Very frustrating. One guy (as

we
learned from his wife) was a long time alcoholic and frankly his mind was
pickled. He couldn't follow any instruction or grasp the simplest concept.
Fortunately his dog had a wonderful temperament and was tolerating his
owners confused handling more or less well.



i'd be more interested to know what kind of dogs the "bad" owners had. :-)

Unless you work on the dog by yourself for a
sustained time IMHO you didn't train it. Teaching the handler and even
demo-ing with their dog doesn't count.


8 years of working with and seeing certain breeds, I can honestly say that if I
were to own any of them, I would be fully aware of what their general traits
are and how to handle training.

Thats just working with. If you add in reading everything you can about every
breed (which I do for fun) adds a bit more knowledge of what to look for and
what you may expect.

However, LIVING with a particular breed IMO is quite different Although I
can say that from what I've seen from certain breeds is enough to make me
realize that they would not be compatible with my lifestyle.

Indeed there are definitely breeds that would not be compatible
with my lifestyle. Sibes come to mind. I love the looks of
them and the personality of them. But the fact that they
are escape artist and can not be trusted *well* off leash
is not what I like in a dog.

One reason I really prefer herding breeds is they tend to stick
close to their "flock"/pack.
