About the regional--we wanted Donovan see Foxx in the trial--he was ready. We needed to work on a more aggressive barking--which was exactly what Donovan was doing when he was doing the van thing. I have to say this first about Donovan--he is always looking for a better DP so when he evaluates a DP he is always looking with a very critical eye so he doesn't really "see" the full quality of the dog. Another thing--which is why I was so critical of what happened, he didn't listen to me when I told him to stop. Foxx is a highly trained dog & we, as a team, were & still are bound by an unbelievable bond. Foxx is what his genetics predicted--he is more than willing to protect--when he is encouraged or thinks he is set free to work on his own, he is more than willing to do it. This is why I always talk about restraint in training a dog to decide when to protect.
