Ya know what, a lot of new owners of GSDs do not really realize how big and strong their pup is going to be in six or eight months. I don't have a problem with a vet saying something to the effect of nipping that in the bud, or getting a handle on that. The backing away and not completing an exam when it is a young pup would bother me more.
Also, kids and dogs are not the same. If you kid goes up to someone and bites them, maybe you can get sued. But the chances of that happening are pretty slim. If your GSD goes and bites someone the chances of getting sued are very real. It's comparing apples to oranges -- vet to resturant server. Why not vet to pediatritian. If a pediatrition in the privacy of their office said, "you need to get a handle on this behavior", you might not like it, but it can be appropriate.
