Two red flags are the use of "social but protective" and "police dog" (rarely true, just a sales pitch....). Be prepared for anything and everything. I have a genetically weak-nerved dog, and looking back I could have made everything a lot easier if I knew what I was dealing with from the start. Usually with dogs like mine, flooding them with all sorts of new experiences without knowing how to manage it is going to make the problem worse, not better. I definitely agree with learning about LAT/BAT.
