Have any new handlers had this problem with their guaranteed dog?
I got him from a reputable trainer in my area. He promised to help me train this dog all the way through full protection dog, so he is very confident this dog can do the work.
His pedigree seems good. Father is a titled West German import and mother is a Czech titled dog. Could be teething I suppose… didn't think of that.
I've had one dog before who was a Czech import and she had insane amounts of drive so she set the bar pretty high. She was sharp, quick minded, and smart as a whip.
It could be separation anxiety because he seems out of it, in a daze. I don't know… I'm concerned.
Any other thoughts?
