Is it true that most WL breeders shy away from producing naturally aggressive dogs? - Page 16 - German Shepherd Dog Forums

Stealing the livestock would be my guess.

Julian have you read the history of Boru?

Also, @Slamdunc when you said he would be happy patrolling alone and would shred anyone who came on the property....how much of that is a result of his training?

Do you have access to trainers to help you do that kind of training, Julian?

@Slamdunc I am curious what your thoughts are on this, what would happen if a layperson owned Boru?

I once visited a goat farm to buy some goats. After driving up a mile long driveway I got out of my car and from the barn walked a big male Anatolian Shepherd. He barked once or twice and walked up to me within about five feet and just stared at me. Trust and believe I did not move a muscle until the farm owner finaly came out of the house and called him. I am most certainly not afraid of dogs but I knew I better not give this guy any reason to act.

I researched that breed a lot because it was what I had planned to put with my goats so they could stay on pasture more.

The size alone will deter a lot of people, they are really impressive and will do what they do with very little training.

Thank you. He's actually going to be three this week. I just never get video of him. My wife is usually the one behind the camera, so if she's handling and I'm decoying, then we get no video. This is the most recent video of him.

The sable at the bottom of the screen I'm holding is my new prospect. She's currently 10 weeks. 7 weeks when this video was taken.

No, they ship them off to stupid Americans or the dogs take a dirt nap.

True, but there are people out there who want these dogs. I cant figure out for the life of me why. I've been to trials where the handlers are wearing long sleeve shirts and leather cuffs. Why? Because there dogs will get so loaded that they need to bite something, and up the leash they come. I don't want to have to put chain-mail on to work my dog lol. I see this mostly in the LE community thinking they need this type dog for the street because nothing else will bite.

I have no problems with a strong rank dog, but many of these dogs have a screw loose.

I will have to be honest here and admit that I'm a bit vain and love the look of GSD/Mals/DSD
I'm sure many of you appreciate their beauty as well.

Ever worry that you do decoy work with him and then live with him as well? I ask because someone who trains KNPV dogs has said to never be the prey or hold the prey item to avoid the risk of getting bit yourself.

Hmm, no wonder why some of them are only $500. The shipping from Holland costs more than the dog with some breeders. Learn something new every day.

Yes, but I'm not his handler. My wife is. He does not take commands from me. We take precautions to keep training clear. We also take extra measures on his crates at training. He has busted out multiple times to get to me when I'm getting Kimber out of the truck. I never work him in our house. My wife also can not rough house or anything with him out. Actually a few weeks ago all I did was pick her up and throw her on my shoulder, I turned around and saw nothing but teeth coming at my face. My wife downed him, I put her down, she told him good boy because technically he wasn't wrong and we had to put him up for a bit to calm back down. I never work my own dog.
