cattle dogs have my vote
i`ve had woody for 10 years now ,
he just clicks with me like no other dog has,
we go to work ,he knows so many words now
watches my van when indie clients home , just sits by it or by front door.
greets the client ,
says good bye when we leave ,
will come out of our bedroom carrying my glasses ( wife says " give these to dad")
get my newspaper woody!
we`re like an old shoe.
not at all hyper like they`re known to be
opens the door for our other dog " get the door for baxter .."
GSD without doubt (have had 3), saved a naughty westie two years ago, real pain in the arse. Looked far and wide for training before coming across an american trainer who's training videos helped sort her out.
DM me for more details about the course and the ebook that I got with it
