|I don't supose it was bad for the breed. lol A show line could have done it and maybe even better! lol Any SchH3 dog should be able to do that much and better! Looked like a circus act to me.|

|clk1234, Wayne is the first man (who wasn't actually a woman that had a sex change) to ever get pregnant. Didn't you know that? That's how Wayne gets all of those dogs, Scientists have paid him millions to study him.|
Seriously though...... I do like the dog, but he didn't seem very intense or fast for that matter. And my question is.....Did Wayne actually work and title this dog himself, or did he buy it already titled like many of the adults he has?

I agree with djc

|For a "personal protection" demonstration, shouldn't the helper have been in a bite suit with a hidden sleeve and not working such a routine? I guess if the crowd doesn't know better it will "wow" them either way. LOL, the music, oh my LOLOL!!|

|looked like a sizeable crowd,wonder what percentage of those present had ever even seen a demo like this...i saw a well trained dog that did everything he was told to do,sure i guess wayne could have went to the end kennel run with a snare pole and cattle prod and brought out a barely controllable,rocket propelled, man-eater to scare the crap out of people and shred up a bitesuit,then choked off the bite,spitting out bloody suit material(maybe eat a couple of kids on the way out...hey,just joking) and i'm sure some would have been impressed with such a display,but most of us have seen that kind of monster...we give them a wide berth,but even those kind of dogs do have value to the breed,when infused in measured doses to suitable,proven bitches. as to the quaility of the routine,i thought it was very good and actually did put the "GSD" in a favorable light,a well mannered, good looking dog that did his job.as to WAYNE'S waistline..let's see,when i was 20 yrs old i had a 28 in waist,now at 60,it's a snug 34,as i look around at most of the geezers i know and train with...none of them look like bodybuilders.|

|There are many dogs out there that are fast, energetic, spectacular to watch and well behaved. A monster just means not very well trained or poor temperament to me. One does not need to take an easy way out with a slow dog to perform for, and mingle with a crowd.|
Yes, SchH handlers DO NOT need to be body builders for sure!! It takes VERY little physical output to be a handler and perform a routine. Training does take a tad more, because you have to be able to hold the dog back. Now on the other hand helpers NEED to be body builders!! Kudos to their hard work.

|I give credit to Wayne, he is a marketing genius..or at least someone on his "team" is....|
One has to wonder how much thi$ little $how brought him in revenue.

|as a PR move for the breed and the sport we do, I think it was excellent. it wasn't necessarily impressive to those that do and train this stuff all the time, but for people seeing it for the first time. It showed the breed in the light it should be viewed. A well trained dog, with very good control and a good temperment to hang out and meet the crowd after.|
Still won't buy a dog from the guy :) I'm sure it helps him sell dogs, can't fault a guy for marketing. and I think it left a positive impression on all the people in attendence.

|I really liked the decoy's jump over the net, that was impressive. A nice, well trained dog who gave a good demo as well. |
I wouldn't buy a dog form him either.

|I liked the video Lol..;)|
I think given the audience and the setting it was a great routine and a nice dog..A good looking dog too IMO...; )

|This is the type of dog that the people in that crowd could look at and see themselves owning. It's good marketing, he knows what his customers want and can present it to them well. I wouldn't buy from him either.|
