I am sorry and I don't want to argue with you but I have read a couple of your dog posts in the past and noticed that you are some kinda of a trainer or some such. I could not believe some of the stuff you were saying. You in fact need to get your info in order. You do however talk in circles quite well.
I realize each dog is different just like humans but I was stating in generals. Sure there are a few labs out there that are meaner then any junk yard dog around but in general they are nice.
Really you have a dog that will only eat from your hand or a dish you give her. Well dang I guess my pup running a goose down for 200 yards is nothing or how about a 200 yard blind retrieve through the swamp busting ice and frag the hole way. You can keep the parlor tricks for the rescue dogs.
My lab will not chew the face off my grandson because he squealed or cried at just the right tone to kick in his pray drive. A lab may bite but rot's, pit's and dob's tend to bite and not stop.
Good luck with that dog behavioral thing.
O and BTW I have been at this dog deal a long time. I have done my research and talked with many professionals throughout the years.
I agree there are way to many dogs out there in pounds and what not. Some of it is because of what I have stated and people got into something they didn't know about and couldn't handle. Most I think just don't realize how much responsibility an animal is and what it takes to train, feed and up keep one. We as humans can really suck when it comes to taking care of pets.
