LOL ... now that sound's like a Boxer!! WL GSD folk's have little time or patience for that kinda crap! But Boxer owner's or most likely Boxer's first owner's ... "par for the course??"Thanks Chip
yes, something of a Boxer club here based out of Honoluu. Haven't kept up with them since they went FaceBook only based, was active before the switch, even hosted here.
We had some AKC based training locally before covids. Kekoa graduated CGC, but we didn't continue. Typical Boxer fashion, he pretty much "forgot" everything on truck ride home after graduation.
I was always the odd duck over there (Germanshepardforum) . The Boxer guy, and while I did entertain them with my stories of Struddell and her high speed, high temp, high desert Bunny chasing and other antic's. I kinda ticked them off ... cuz I never recommended a WL GSD, to uh anyone!! Even LE K9, officer ... had dog's that, let's see gnawed off one of there kid's leg's! A neighbor had to save the kid! And young dog's in training ... freaking "Door Bolting," and biting neighbor's in the ass!! And ... a K9 officer "CONVICTED FOR MANSLAUGHTER," when his dog killed a neighbor! Yeah posting that story got me "Banned," there ... a "Bridge To Far," as it were??
But hey "Some," K9 handler's ... aren't that good!" Bare that in mind if you ... happen to live next to one ... just saying. We did have one other member there ... that also had "Boxer's! She had four Boxer's and "someone," that knew her said all of her "Boxer's," were Human Aggressive?? I have no idea what the heck she was doing?? But I would "suspect??" All her dog's were Euro Boxer's???
I don't know ... but as far as I have seen ... you have to mess up pretty bad to have a Human Aggressive Boxer, much less four of them???
Aww well, I find life much simpler ... in "semi Boxer," world. My Bella (not my choice sigh cuz she is a girl) but you know ... if you don't have to "constantly stay on high alert," to keep your dog from, "Maiming or Killing," company life is a lot simpler!
Bella my new (Pit/Boxer) gets away with "murder!" She half ass "recall's in a distraction, free environment." But hey, I can let her off leash as long as I chose location's carefully! And she is a "Counter Surfer," kinda ... the cat bowl's. I feed the cat's on the table and after the cat's finish ... Bella look's at me to see if it's OK to get the bowl's?? I look back and sigh and ... "whatever??" So she say's, hey good enough!
My better half is not crazy about that "behavior!" But I do the training and so Bella look's to me and I say .... "whatever." With my other dog's ... I'd have never allowed that kinda crap! But you know after a decade of "serious always being on alert, and reasonable," for a ... dog that would/could hurt someone!! Bella is a relief. I had to train "Rocky," to make "Good Choice's," if modaddy was around?? And he still did great!! Wl GSD's are can be amazing dog's! But hey are a lot of work!
And "Rocky WLGSD," ... saved me from a dog attack, when I slipped on the ice while shielding him ... unbid. Before "choosing to step up! He did as he was told ...stay behind me dog! But when "Daddy," went down ... "Well this crap is new?? Perhaps I should make presence known!! LOL it was "Epic!" But that's another story.
So I got a lazy with Bella. She is great around the house and pretty easy to live with. But yeah ... I know dog's can do better!
