Definitely great helper work, Mark is amazing and very good at what he does. He definitely demands that they look at him and not the equipment. . . in which they are pleased to do as they can and will be very serious and are not equip fixated.
The Neos turn on very quickly and will get defensive quickly as well. Mark works the balance and asks for nice fight drive in them and they give it, although are not as pleased to run in a circle with the sleeve, they would rather go back and fight lol! The Neos of course are not sport dogs but for Mastiffs work very well. We plan to take them as far as they will go, goal being: Able to do blinds and bark and hold, advanced bite work and to track.
They are very protective of their property and family and warn with fierce energy. We are very happy with how Brennius turned out, he is confident, forward and comfortable in any setting. He goes to work with us a lot, our Shop is located in a very busy shopping center and nothing he sees or hears phases him. He is very much like Bintu; fearless, bombproof(environmentally, socially, etc) and will get serious quickly when there is a reason. Hes also coming along nicely with tracking, hes got a great nose!!!
Thanks again all for kind words!
