With that said, I don't have any stake in the matter so go for it, maybe I was wrong.

That, and if this was anyone other than a breeder that I know many people on this site are familiar with, there would be 60 comments tearing the training apart by now.

|robk||In all fairness to you guys, the owner is using this video on their website to promote this dog as a stud so I guess it is fair game.|

I have actually never seen the guarding and entries cut out like that in any protection clips I have seen. Those are generally focussed on, sometimes conclusions can be drawn by what is not there.
I suppose you could argue the behaviors shown could be a result of to much pressure from the helper in early training.. However, a stud quality dog should be looking better then that imo.

|Liesje||The clips are kind of weird. If I was seriously considering using this dog for stud or buying a puppy, I'd need to see a lot more than just this YouTube vid, so I'm not sure how much I'd want to judge from just this vid.|

|Blitzkrieg1||the dog is on YouTube the dog is being used as a stud. People on this forum are steered towards litters produced by this dog. If we cannot look at a publicly available video of a dog working and critique it then we might as well all get off the internet now. Perhaps some people thought the dog was awesome? It cannot always be sweetness and light we cannot only examine the good examples without having those less than good to compare them with|

Generally an open and marketed stud dog is fair game IMO for critique. Here or anywhere.
That said, unless it's the owner asking for it, I'm not inclined to give a public critique. This thread will probably get deleted too, so on the rare occasion I say something noteworthy it will be lost in that internet black hole anyway
But those paying attention will probably be able to connect the dots. This video gives everyone a good idea of something I was talking about on a different thread.

Anyway With regards to the OP I can't tell a thing watching the video. But does the owner of this dog know you are posting his videos for all to critique? Just because you CAN (it's on youtube) really doesn't mean you SHOULD IMO. Championships are one thing, training sessions are another.
