Re: [sherman] Rottweiler - Cliff v.d. konigskanzel
[In reply to]
I tried looking for a tape by a lady trainer called Mary Ann ??, had seen one of her tape that I had borrowed and think it is pretty good. However, I was told that one could only get it from Manchester. I drove there during one of my trip, but did not find it in the city centre. Do you have some titles that you are looking at now?
I am just looking at US tapes now under the Leeburg URL, a little expensive but have not view them because I am too busy.
By the way, I agree with you about the loaded gun perspective. I had a friend who knew I am crazy about Rottweilers, and recommend to me one of his family friend who had a trained dog for manwork. It is the same as protection, but called differently I think. The Rottweiler is from Australia, specially imported because the owner is also a crazy fan of Rottweiler. Unfortunately, their business is failing and they needed to sell their bungalow, and so had to give up their dog.
It was an extremely nice Rottweiler and I really would like to own the dog because of his size and headpiece. But he is so fierce that I don't think I ever would have a chance at all to retrain him. I finally extracted from the owner's sister that he actually went after the new domestic servant and she fell straight on the floor. The dog held her down for more that half and hour till the owner return. He will not move despite being "punished" by other members of the family. It sure scare the hell out of the servant, but she could start feeding her after many months.
I tried to go near him and later I found that there is really zero chance, and I gave up because I think he will definitely fight with my other male. It is a shame to give him up because I really think he is an outstanding dog.
