He doesn't have a very filled out male appearance to me, and his behavior and training (or lack thereof) makes him appear younger (to me). Usually, an experienced trainer would have a dog much further along than that by 2 from what I have seen.
When we were puppy shopping, I (well, DH too) fell in love with a young male from excellent breeding that was about the level of training shown in those videos. he was a newly turned 2 and they intended to keep him for breeding stock, placed him in a foster home, he didn't ever really get worked outside the basics, then lived the kennel/pet life for awhile with no real training once they decided he wasn't breeding material and put him up for sale. He had a little more defense drive than your "Dino," but still mostly working in prey like Dino, and what I would consider basic obedience as shown in the videos you posted. He was priced a little high for his level of training, but not an unfair price by any means @ 2,500. They did eventually offer him to us for 2K, but we ended up passing for other reasons, some related to the dog and others not. We ended up not getting one at all to be fair, and if we had it would've been him. But I just hope you didn't get taken for a ride with this one, because the one we were looking at was very, very similar and was being sold as green and basic OB trained only by an honest breeder.
