Exactly! There's a lot of denial regarding the influence of genetics, especially in certain breeds.

yep HD. back in the day,a lot of Am. SL were "spooks". I notice other terms are used for other lines, but it's the same. the breeders always denied it was the breeding.
"all the pup needs is exposure" was the common reply. I spent a lot of time in front of tractor supply, etc. getting them "exposure". hey, you want to pet my pup, maybe give him a treat.
one day it hit me how stupid this was as it never helped. I'm a little slow on the uptake, but eventually I get there. and I have seen just as "spooky" in Euro w/l and s/l. if they are born that way no amount of "nurture" makes it better.

"Its because he has not been exposed to that"....to what, keys falling, are you serious..."yes, I am"....there is no curing that Rik.
