Here's an example of a beautiful working rottweiler in IPO. Big, strong, fast, shit tons of drive..........................but he's working 100% in prey. His vocalizations are a dead give away and his bouncy disposition on the decoy is also a strong sign of his mind set. This dog was high in trial for this "protection routine".
The average dog person looks at this and thinks pups from him will be strong candidates for a PD and pays $3000+shippinng. They'll probably get a nice looking dog that can whale on a sleeve but the chances of getting the real deal are far and away.
Working rottweiler breedinng is pushing so hard towards points in sport that defense is being pushed out of them in favour of drive and softer temperments-even Oliver Neubrand wrote about this in a article on modern breeding on rotts not too long ago.
Another example of hype Pete-see....I dont just pick on the little dogs:cool2:
