Nerves , drive, and your dog,

I wouldn't be surprised if this article is on here somewhere. But, I will post anyway just in case. I have learned a lot from reading this. In regards to possible GSD dogs I may purchase in the future and dog behavior in general. Hopefully others will find this just as informative. I would also like to hear others opinion on this article.

I always say that Joy Tiz's article on Temperament should be mandatory reading for all GSD owners, would-be owners, past owners, trainers, and breeders or would be breeders.

If your breeder or any wanna-be breeders out there do not have the same level of GSD experience as the author, and cannot discuss drives and temperaments in their dogs in the same vein as this article, they have absolutely no business breeding.

Glad you found it interesting! Go back and read it again as your experience and knowledge grows, you'll get even more out of it.

I always like the article but I have always questioned Joy Tiz's qualifications to write it and the lack of any supporting documentation.

Does anybody know anything in this area regarding this article?

MAWL -- Did a web search - the woman's credible. An attorney, went into dog law, and, I guess you could say "gone to the dogs." Tried to copy the info here but Foxfire crashed on me & lost the text.

I wasn't trying to discredit her, I do like the article. I am just saying if you were trying to use this article as supporting documentation yourself, I know the next statement would be: "she's nothing but an author, dog lawyer, etc." Did she just randomly research this and pull it together? Did she consult with dog breeders / trainers/ behaviorists? And if she did, who are they?

I want to know where, or from who, did she get this information or was it from personal experience.

The only research for this kind of stuff is real world experience. You cannot learn this in class. There is no science experiment that you can do to prove this. You understand after you own, train and work many dogs.

I dont usually say this about articles but this was pretty spot on.

people need to stop looking at theoretical science based on hypothesis derived from something a researcher witnessed when they watched a pack of wolves at the zoo or a rat in a maze and instead look at what matters.

RESULTS. What has this person done, produced and trained. Thats it.

That is my point. Does she have real world experience, if so, what is it? If not, and she put this article together based on other's real world experience, who were they?
