@dogdragoness, I'm won't even pretend to be a Mal expert, maybe @julimule will chime in, but from the GSD side, breeding or more realistically selective breeding for temperament is a proven problem, in an effort to tame GSD's into pets instead of working dogs, some lines have been corrupted as I think they went too far.
That being said, alot of times I think it's poor training and lack of understanding. Shepherds grow in to brave, strong confident dogs, but are pretty fragile at points during their puppy development. A bad experience can ruin a great shepherd. Combine that with an over exuberent alpha/dominance theory, pack theory zealot and you have a recipe for nervous fear aggressive, broken dog :-(

I know and it's sad because a working dog CAN be a family pet if all their needs are met and they are from a good breeder. Bad breeders have also contributed tithe corruption of the breed.

You are preaching to the choir when it comes breeding for show/pet VS breeding for sport/work. There should BE no split! If someone wants a breed base on looks alone they should look at another breed or go to a rescue. They shouldn't expect an entire breed to change because people want a pet who looks like a GSD but acts like a lab.

My two girls are absolute monsters, Zocha almost scares me somtimes doing bite work and I'm on the safe end of her lol. We did a car scenario about a month ago for the first time and it was intense to say the least lol. A veteran decoy diving out of the passenger door tell you something lol
Conversely, the two suck ups are both the most pathetic lap puppies whenever Grandma or Auntie are around :-)

@dogdragoness, carpet crocs, rug raptors, shepsharks, lol. The problem is people don't get it, or they think it's a bit of a running joke, and exagerrated :-(

Don't mistake, ACDs can also be "carpet gators" as well LOL ... though in a different way, but it seems as though I will be getting an ACD, it seems as though that is the breed I was "meant" to own

@dogdragoness and theres nothing wrong with that :-) If a dog suits your lifestyle, it's the perfect dog :-) I have only ever had direct contact with one ACD, just not a commomn breed here, but the one I knew was awesome :-) Not just because it was trained well, but the general nature of the dog. Happy, playful, confident without being obnoxious, and had a great sense of doggie humor :-)

I knew that this was a thing, but it wasn't until we got Mia with her most-likely-mal-whippet-pigdog heritage that I began to understand just how crazy the bite thing might be in a purebred dog.

Sure, I've had incredibly intense dogs before, and I love them, but shepherd/mal types are new to me and I've never dealt with the drivey, hair-trigger sharking that we went through with Mia. I am just really glad that pigdogs are bred to hold rather than maim, and that she has developed a huge amount of inhibition, because I like my hands. And arms. And face.

@BarkyMalarkey hahaha, well at least it worked out in the end These type of dogs are all I know, and I love them. 3 or 4 months of bites is a small price to pay for what they become :-) And honestly I do nothing, which is another thing people never believe Sure I redirect when it's convenient, but often I just hold still and say knock it off.
I do tonnes of inhibition games, but generally nothing directly involving the bite :-)
