Re: Too much affection

I'm only a novice, but what some in your club are saying seems cruel and backwards. There are surely MANY top French Ring, Schutzhund dogs etc. That have been raised as loving pets on top of being competitors. Why not have it all is what I feel. Nice advice I got from WDF was kennel and/or crate your dog as part of his daily routine so he learns how to relax, but that is where it ends for me. At your pups age, I was working on getting my pup to just chill at my feet at outdoor restaurants, but was spending many hours with him in many situations. Some Mals are late bloomers too. Your club members may be used to seeing Mals from only certain lines. My little Mal is 5 and a half months. He wasn't crazy in bite drive at first, but by giving him just a taste of it at a time and getting excited about it myself, his drive skyrocketed, or maybe he just matured. I say, make him a member of your family and not just a tool in a game you like to play. Have fun
