So it's all about the character the dog has already.........If I look at the posts of famous dogs ( great dogs) I don't think training had much to do with it. Those dogs that became famous because of their charactre, their toughness, drive and will. For instance, the story of Balto and Togo,to mention two, I don't think that there will ever be a dog that can do such a performance ever again, that kind of distance in that kind of snowstorms and bad weather.It was the will of the dogs to survive, you can't train a dog for that..... If that was the case, there would be more famous and great dogs as the ones we know.
So, in fact great dogs are born, not made?
