Very old interview. Bart has got to be one of the best trainers of the age.

Question is can they prove it? I work a female but I know if I take 10 females and 10 males Im more likely to find a stronger dog in the male group.

If you have a truly strong proven female she is worth her weight in gold.

Only if she reproduces herself. According to the fellow in the interview, the bitches that were like this seem to be some type of an anomaly, and did not reproduce themselves.

I think it is perfectly natural for a male of a species and a female of a species to have some characteristics that are different. Consider the Lipizzaner horses, the females have a different center of gravity than the males and were used primarily as cart horses. Gestation requires this. The stallions were used for battle. I am not sure how the temperaments differ between male and female though.

Females primarily need to protect the den and pups. Males need to protect their breeding rights. Females will fight to the finish, males generally fight and then drop it when both parties are relatively intact. Males and females are different. If you have a female that is more like a male, then it also makes sense that she may not reproduce herself that well.

There are a few of us with some extremely strong females and some that have produced themselves for several generations. That said, it is sill easier to find extremely strong males. Even in that case, though, they need to be bred to strong females to pass on themselves with any regularity.

I can't watch the video, but have never felt the need to argue about the power of males Vs. females. Males are for the most part, bigger, more muscular and that testosterone tends to make them better in protection work. Females, though, can be far nastier.

Depends on the dog. I've been told by our trainer females are harder to train as far as SchH. Then again I've seen females put a male to shame. For some reason I feel females are more fearless and driven.

It still isn't in disagreement with what he said though. He acknowledged there are strong females out there he just said it was aberrant.
