What comes first the chicken or the egg?
by troublelinx on 12 February 2011 - 02:02
|I have only seen a few good show line gsd when it comes to protection. It is common knowledge that the quality of work a dog performs can be affected by the emotional state of the person working the dog. For instance the lack of confidence from a handler can transfer to the dog affecting work quality.|
Now to the point at hand. Could it be that the dogs are perfectly fine working quality. Could it in fact be the handlers transfering a lack of confidence and unsureness throug the leash, thus making these dogs more prone to being ran, and chewy grips or general disinterest in the work its self?
Please do not be offended just a question.

so most of the people handling Showline dogs are nervy and lack confidence, so the dogs resemble the owner's state?

You hit the nail on the head, no pun intended
This would be a good thing for the showline dogs. This would mean that they are not actually flawed. My next dog will be a show line and I will test this new theory of mine.
If all works out my new thread will be titled "What comes first the hawk or the egg" as opposed to "chicken"

|Your next dog? How about next 100 and from all different lines. A true test isn't based on one dog. If it was, we would have no need for SchH after the first dog passed.|

|Where does the rooster fit in to all of this? With out him there would be no chicken or egg.|

Oh, but Felloffher, we don't need a rooster to make an egg.
by Felloffher on 12 February 2011 - 18:58
There would be no chicken without the rooster and without the chicken there is no egg :).

I knew you were going to say that.

|All this talk about chicken has left craving some BBQ chicken. I wonder if show lines taste like chicken?|

Not sure what I would do with 100 showlines. I guess if they cant work they can do their chicken prance in the show ring. Besides I hear these type dont like getting dirty. Would not want to chip a nail, gosh no! Wouldnt want to smudge their preciouslittle sattle back.

|Don - What's the matter with you? I think your brain is going soft with all that comedy you are playing with that young chicken. |
