I hear ya, the reaction the handler makes after the bite is what I was refering to...She never even attempts to physically remove the dog. She looks a little lost on what to do. Back to the Dog, and Decoy. I have always wondered about the temperment of dogs that live bite as reaction to something they find unpleasent. I am not sure if I can call a dog that protects himself weak in the nerves. That being said, I do not think that the nerves are the problem, I have seen an exceptionally confindent dogs that do not flinch , until they do not get thier way. Then they bite for real....This makes training the dog not only dangerous, but it's just a pain in the ass to train them. Great dogs...in all respects...except in trainability. Which I think that for me, I want a dog that is not so diffcult to train. So, in this case for me....there is something wrong with the dog. It maybe a dog I would want a puppy from...but not a dog I want to train. I have seen some dog of the opposite...dogs I never would want a puppy from, But would to love the dog itself for training.
