Of course the ultimate goal would be to title the Neos but to be honest they are not sport dogs IMO, whether or not they can handle the pressure of the extensive training needed to title in each area of the sport. . . .only time will tell. For one thing, personally I feel they do not have the commitment in the trainability needed for it. They do the beginnings of the bite work well and they track well but they need to really want what I have(ball, toy, food, etc) to really excel in all the other areas, they may lack the animation it takes for passing scores in ob, dumbbells, retrieves, send out, etc. Its of course not a sport for a TRUE mastiff but we will see what they will do. I definitely feel they will be able to track, do the bite work and do the obedience(the heeling, sit, stay, etc) part.
I know our Bandogges will do it, they ARE doing it and the goal for them is nothing less than a Sch3/IPO3. I think the fact that we have great working Neos to add with excellent bulldogs we will make outstanding Bandogges(which is our true goal and main purpose for the Neos to begin with). . . .the Bandogge program is in its very early phases with many more steps to go before we feel we have created what we want. . . as with all Bandogge programs, I guess its always a work in progress
