What were the reasons they considered him too much?
"I reiterate. There is a reason the west German border police used schutzhund sport as a basis to qualify their dogs and used as a breeding tool. Done the Lance Collins (my director), way, transition to real work is very simple. Case in point, my dog pictured above sire is 3x WUSV. AFTER retiring, he became a police patrol dog in Oregon at the age of 7. That is what I call proof of training philosophy."
Cool I've always admired a good,healthy, sound minded GSD
Since a Schutzhund trained dog does deliver a good grip/apprehension bite(escape bite) along with the OB training,that is the most logical selection pool.No disagreements(from me) there!
Along with the dog being taught to use its superior scenting capabilities for a human, on command,I do agree that transition to real police work shouldn't be that difficult.....as you've shown.
That is proof.
