Personally, I haven't managed to keep things 'black and white' with Ruby, so we're starting out very black and white with Riggs.
One of the best dogs in PSA right now is a full time, sleep on the bed house dog. But those dogs are not the majority.
bustersmama wrote:Just to clarify, when you say working dog - does that soley mean bite work? Is there any other type of "work" that you would want the personal time you spent with the dog limited until your "role" is established (or better yet his job?) Please, I am really clueless and just asking.
Also does Ruby and Conner perform their work as though it is a game? Again, the reason I am asking - I read a post not to long ago (I think it was Odnarbs) that the pit bull they did bite work with did well in competitions but if was ever asked to "attack" someone in a real world situation it might hesitate due to pit bull temperament.

What's he weigh? How old is he? I've not seen many pit bulls that were registered with the ADBA, UKC, and AKC.
I bet he's a great worker and you'll have a blast with him!
What happened with Roger the Rottie you were considering?

Roger is a great dog but would not have worked out. He's dog aggressive, so would have to ride in the car crated... but his crate is too big to fit in my car. We would have had to take two cars if we wanted to bring all three dogs somewhere. He's also just way too big.
