[bksvol-discuss] Re: OT: people's reactions and stpid questions

Yes indeed that is definitely over protectiness and that dog should be 
retired.  I have met several dogs, who were "managed" like your friends dog 
and all of them ended up retiring early usually after the escalated into 
nipping people or other dogs.

Aggression is a trait that we do not want to see in a guide dog of any 
breed.

Dog ownership is like a rainbow.
 Puppies are the joy at one end.
 Old dogs are the treasure at the other.
