|Funnily enough, I just watched this video recently. Lol it's a total advertisement fir that guy's protection school, but I think he has a good point. Only a trained dog can intelligently discern true threat, that's my belief. My dog is currently learning a bite command but I would never even bother using it in an emergency, either ... it is only used in play, on a toy. His nerves are all wrong to offer any sort of useful protection, god knows I love the dog, but I have no issue admitting that. And even a strong nerved dog, correctly bred dog needs the correct training, if I am being attacked I want my dog to stoically and calmly take hold of an arm, not rush in biting wily nilly. Even if I had a shepherd with the correct brave and protective temperament, I would not expect anything of her until she was trained.
If Jackson so much as barked if I was bring attacked, I would be both impressed and flattered. But odds are he would skulk off like these untrained GSDs.
