Your ideal breed test
I think we have all heard the complaints about IPO as a breed test and the statement that with it's faults it's the only thing we have.
So what would your ideal breed test be? Use your imagination!
I've "read" about the following one and heard that is was part of the old Czech testing. I have no idea if that is true or not but it appeals to me.
Handler and dog are walking down unfamiliar road when someone runs out of the woods and attacks or aggresses towards the handler, and then escapes back in the woods. Dog is released to track the bad guy down and hold him.
I'm shaky on the details but to me a test like this would test the dogs protective instinct, nerve, and tracking ability.
What's everyone else think?
