or would it be considered an emotional trait since very few people are purposefully breeding FOR dog aggression these days?
I doubt there are statistics to support whether or not people are breeding for dog aggression. The only people who would be doing that on purpose don't really answer surveys. However, I don't believe that responsible breeding actually breeds against it either. But that's outside of this discussion...

"Thus while working traits may be characteristic of breeds or types, emotional traits show much overlap between breeds."
Now in regards to our dogs, would dog reactivity be considered a working trait since that is what they were bred for originally, or would it be considered an emotional trait since very few people are purposefully breeding FOR dog aggression these days?
