    Had a female call me about protection training a month ago. She had her training done in Colorado just outside the army base there before her husband being assigned here in Alabama. I assessed the dog and although he showed the drive needed, his bite…
  • PS:

    I should mention that I'm not against the idea of a Kangal or Ovcharka. I'd like to learn more about these breeds - beyond the general stuff available online. I'd also want to know about the specific line the dog came from and develop a rapport…
