..and another question to pose to the folks here regarding dog aggression, or at least lack of tolerance.

I've now read a couple of articles (it's mentioned in the one above, 'herder overlords vs labs' which is kind of funny) and another article by a trainer mentioning that some breeds don't 'mesh' well.

I know there are plenty of labs and GSDs co-existing very peacefully in a 'pack', the problem seems to revolve around when they meet as strangers.

So given that some of this tension/aggression is genetic differences should GSDs be taught to accept overly goofy labs (for example) bouncing into their faces without any kind of reaction at all?
