I like that and agree. I need a little more than that like boats, bush planes, freight sled transport, etc. but I get what you mean. The tips I picked up here for certain trained behaviors have carried over well.My goal my whole life was/is first and foremost to have a 100% reliable "truck dog".
I'd respond to the question about offering examples of where too much time on details mucked the waters of the bigger picture but I don't know if I see the point or rather what my doing so would accomplish. What works for me, isn't necessarily needed or appropriate for anyone else. I respect those differences.
