I hate the word "sport" also!! And, I hate "grip"...I prefer bite, reef, thrash, shake...monkeys grip, real dogs bite. I don't have no stinkin' "sport" dogs!! Where did that "sport" stuff start, anyway? I like a dog who barks out of defense, hate a squeeky prey bark, want good balance (defense/prey) in the dog. Some dogs are defensive and need to be balanced into prey, while some are prey dogs, who need to be balanced toward the defense side. Okay, I'll get off my soap box!!
