Apple, when it comes to bullets, everything and everyONE is of very limited use....
I carry daily, always have, but, before we resort to sending someone to meet their maker, if there is a dog available, why not see if we can change one's mind about his next move?
Believe it or not, 95% of people do change their mind when confronted by a capable dog that looks like it wants to get into a deep conversation with you.

Can you back tie a dog and beat it or threaten to beat it until it actually attempts to bite you, sure, but, again, proper decorum prevents me from explaining to you what I would like to do with these so called "trainers".
I have owned and read that book about 40 years a go and it was a good read and I am sure that in his time as a dog trainer during WWII, some of his methods applied, however, this is a different world with different needs and his ideas are not so valid anymore.

@ rivalt kennels, your point of view is basicly why i started this topic, you definately can not teach and train any dog to do the work, you can teach any dog to sit and roll over, and maybe bark on command, but you CANNOT train anything into a dog that they are geneticly are missing
cant teach a dog to be hard, strong, suspicious or civil, if they dont geneticly have that. period

Koots, one of the nastiest dogs I have ever met was a little Chi with Napoleon syndrome who used to terrorize anyone who he found walking around the apt complex I used to live at many moons a go.
