What is a sport dog?
A sport dog has specific requirements that lead it to success on the podium. Sport dogs must be highly athletic with exceptional stamina to withhold the standards of protection sports. This means, this may not be the dog who does well in the family home who is unwilling to meet their dog's physical and mental needs. Look at this dog as a formula one car, versus the family work truck. You do not need to build this dog to accept every day life. His life comes with rigorous and regular "tuning" and is only carefully placed in controlled environments that continue to build his path to success. This dog is keen, obedient, and has an inert desire to learn new skills. Though this dog will be shown pictures of defensive work, his success is not entirely dependent on it. The truth is a sport dog will work 80% in prey drive the majority of his training. His desire to inherently protect is not as genetically necessary as a personal protection dog.
