Certainly not a pro.
Been to a demo done at a GSDCNO show presentation for Hero dogs where the K-9 handler doing the talking definitely said the dogs are trained to go for the extremities.
If this is true, a bite to the face on a child is disturbing. The dogs trained for this sort of work need to have solid nerves, and be able to work on lead and off lead. If they are going to bite a child like that... I don't know. I suppose they will assess the dog. If this same dog bites another child, possibly disfigures a child, what do you say to the parent? "Yes, we knew the dog did this before, but..." It not only sounds like a lawsuit in the making, but it sounds like the best way to turn off the community on the program. And a lot of programs survive only because of support of the community.
