You need to be more specific about what you count as aggression issues. When people post about an aggressive 15 week old I think this is merited..

I think that a lot of times, "aggression" issues are really training issues. Others, they are socialization issues. Not saying that there aren't dogs who are aggressive, of course! Just seems that Joe Blow doesn't know the difference

My dog has the aggression I want but does not have any issues (no bite history outside of legit protection training, never been in a dog fight/attack).

I get what you are saying.

I posted this thread as a poll for another thread https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...n-threads.html

My dog is no longer aggressive but I answered because she used to be. She was a rescue.

I don't really know how to answer, Molly is aggressive only on lead toward other dogs. Off lead she is fine. She has been labeled as fear aggressive by a previous trainer so am working with a behaviorist now.

I got her from a hobby breeder (not byb but not a long standing breeder either).

I think the idea behind the poll is a good one but to get any meaningful data, we'd all have to agree on what the terms being used mean. What are "issues" or a "byb"? Good luck getting people to agree on those!

Neither of my dogs have inappropriate aggression, so no "issues". Raven is from a BYB and Kaiser is from a BYB/rescued.
