|She is the first dog that has been mentioned on this thread that sounds like a dog I might really like. Can you share any stories about her or just more what she is like? Thanks.|

Most idi*t thinks they own or have seen a "serious" dog. 9 times out of 10 it is a problem with training, socialization or worse, nervy, low threshold dogs.
I exercise EXTREME scpeticism when someone tells me about a "serious" dog.
Any chance of VIDEOs to back up the dogs mentioned!!!

|i'm confused/curious. not sure exactly what you are looking for here. serious and schutzhund can be, but are not necessarily compatible with each other. are you limiting your field to strictly schh dogs or is the seriousness a priority with you? i just thought it was odd that you titled the thread the way you did. there certainly are some very serious dogs on the schh field, but also a great many that never see competition.|

|I know plenty very serious SchH dogs. There is more of them than people think.|

|I wanted to know what dogs that people feel are very serious AND are still able to function in the sport of Schutzhund. I also wanted to exclude Police k9s so Brawnson would be out. I know there are serious dogs that never see the sport field. So I have learned a lot with my question so and I am overall happy with the answers. |
Now you could ask the question "what is the most serious dog you have ever seen?". That would be interesting to see what people said also.

|I know people's definition of "serious" can be different and I know what I think a serious dog is. I wanted to see what other people said rather than argue the point.|

I worked that dog many, many times while I was still at Indy. The dogs name was Sunny von der Adelegg. http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/german_shepherd_dog/pedigree/121512.html
He was a MAN. Through and through! A lion in GSD clothes. Was a Yoschy Dollenwiese son. Everyone said "too strong, scary, my gosh where would you place the pet home puppies, he's no good for points, you'll never win with that dog" and the usual rubbish. He died at like 14 years old, sadly with only one breeding to a showline female that in all fairness did not give him a chance at really reproducing himself. Genetics lost. A real shame!

|Hands down Roy a malinois I saw some years ago many times sch3 ipo 3 and a stone cold deadly serious dog. He loved his handler and the family but God help anyone else who tried to touch him or get on the property. He was acop dog as well. I was never as impressed with a dog as I was seeing that dog and he was a hammer in the bitework oh my gosh there are videos of his courage test around...|

|For me Belschik vom Eichen Bruche stood out & through him to Xamm vd Daelenberghutte - both dogs I like to inbreed on to bring a little "edge" to my pups!|
Also as a youngster I worked a Mink vh Wittfeld son in Germany - Iko vd Lindenhalle. Although I'd worked some pretty tough dogs already, this boy fairly brought me down to earth - ripped the sleeve straight off my arm, "killed" it, spat it out & gave me look that said "c'mon I'm ready when you are"......what a dog!

|Iwo was a very serious dog. Tom trainor of vom ausland kennels had him for awhile. I'm a good friend of Mr. Trainor. Tom got him from Gary Hanrahan. He used him for some breedings. Tom Trainor has always and is known for having "SERIOUS" dogs. Not suprising to see his kennel name in this post. A lot of dogs owned & campaigned by "WELL KNOWN" competitors & breeders have purchased there dogs from Mr. Trainor. He is my "GO TO" man for "SERIOUS POWER" dogs. I guess he has retired now & no longer has his website. I'm purchasing my pups from "TIEKERHOOK" now that Mr. Trainor is retired. If anyone here knows how to get ahold of Tom Trainor let him know I am looking for him. Sincerely. Kurt Hill. Vom Eisenhaus Kennels|

|Ok this Porter dog is the first dog I have seen a video in a long long time that I can say I really like. Excellent control and really working well for handler. Any idea about his bloodlines?|
