|DobbyDad||In two of those photos I think the dog is using a ball to try to lure the chickens in because schH dogs are not only aggressive but also smart.|

I just cleaned out the SD card on the camera and couldn't resist posting these as they seem to go nicely with this recent thread.
We'll call this Myth#1a.. that SchH dogs are not only biting machines against people, but are also too aggressive and high drive to be safe around other animals or to have living in the house as relaxed companions.
A couple of the girls helping me with chores at the barn.
And a typical evening at home watching TV with a pack of high drive SchH trained working line dogs.

Oddly, he isn't dog aggressive.

|llombardo||I have a very high energy, high ball drive golden also. Neither if my goldens are couch potatoes but the younger one is always ready to go What I have noticed is the younger one has picked up some GSD traits. The older one one was not raised with GSD's, he was older when they came into the picture, but Midnite completely took the younger golden under his wing. The younger golden plays like a GSD and picked up some herding. He is a very happy dog, but can take or leave strangers and doesn't need to meet everyone. He follows me everywhere and won't go with a stranger. I'm sure genetics play a role, but I believe that from being around the GSD's, he acts like one. It's what he has learned.|

I raise a golden that will go all day and be ready for more, and is a very calm and easy going dude when he needs to be. He's done 15 miles in the wilderness then ready to go where I may go lol. So not all goldens are just couch potatoes. :P Granted I also find it interesting that many people who own GSD also own a lab or golden. Must mean something.
Anyway I found some pictures that have Leia with a child we know (I am lacking in friends with kids) so I could share those.
Not as impressive as some other dogs out there but she's a good girl.
