BTW, welcome to the board. There's a few here that do protective training and IMHO, we need more.


I need to get off my butt and find a local club for our 9 month old. What's your take on when to start protective training? I hear conflicting stories.

some info......

Capone just turned 4 yrs old....Gigi just turned 3.....both are very fun dogs.

Capone & Gigi are "performance" bred...which mean NO modern day Johnson blood in their ped....they are both linebred off Bamaboy & dogs down from RodeHawg Kennels(Larry Koura)....

I have started my dogs very young....but having a good trainer & decoy is a must of the dog can be ruined....just keep it simple & fun.....really to much info to type....if you're not sure...don't!!!!....just wait.


Here's a clip of Capone @ 5 months....this was his 1st session.

My girl is a hybrid, half johnson, half hines. My biggest problem with getting her started doing any training was I didnt know where to start. I just met someone who is doing training so he can give me some help. He has this beautiful Blackchamps AB.

sorry...

I live in Chicago....

been in the breed for about 8 yrs....own 2 other dogs....Cujo who's down from Jousha dogs(3x Cowboy) and Zena who is a hybrid out of Matias x Nikki...

I love the breed BUT would demand alot more folks tesing health & working temp before breeding..

That's my biggest gripe....people not being true to the breed & just peddling pups because THEY think the parents are beautiful.....this breed has been on the down slope for a while now......I'm not against people owning pets.....BUT just breeding pets is a whole nother story......this is a working breed!!!!.....plain & simple.......sorry for the rant.

I think you will find the majority of the people here share your views on breeding. I cant stand people who just take any dog and breed them. This goes for all dogs not just working dogs such as ABs. We had a guy on here today who wanted to buy a couple bulldogs and breed them. He never even owned one before. He didnt like that we didnt agree with his idea of breeding. He just wanted to buy a couple and hope to get some cash off the pups. Its very frustrating.

Welcome to the forum Troy!!! I am quite familiar with you and Capone from some of the other boards. In fact, I watched a bunch of videos you posted over on the JH board this morning. They were great, your boy sure can take the pressure! You will definitely be a welcome addition here, this breed and this fourm need more people like you. Keep up the great work and keep standing up for what you believe in!

All I can say is WOW. Capone is a great dog and I love see him at work. The videos are great. I would love to get into something like that (my brother did with his GS) when I have a lot of time to devote to it. (kids must get older first). Welcome to the board too.

You dogs are amazing! I love the end of Gigi's video when she is hanging onto the tree. Talk about determination! They look like they really enjoy working! Thanks for coming to our forum, we really appreciate help from knowledgeable people.
