Also, the "get him neutered before he becomes a territorial shepherd" comment.
I've had great vets and not so great vets, same with techs. It's a high stress job for sure and sometimes I feel sometimes (even without meaning to) they project what's going on that day onto you and your dog. They're only human so you win some and you lose some
Remember that what sticks into their minds the most are the bad examples of the breed, not the good ones
