    The war dogs episode was great !!
    How loyal are dogs......"OH so your throwing yourself of a cliff...i'll glady let you pull me over aswell"....LOL.
    Like old mate said...no other animal commits it's self to humans like a dog.

    It also showed it's not just young blokes with too much testosterone that like to own big scary dogs...that bird with the Mastiff lovexd the fact that dog would bite someone in the face. Didnt she wake up to herself once the shoe was on the other foot.

    And once again i was thinking how much i couldnt stand the bloke on the show but by the end of it i thought he was a alright fella. (The pug guy).
    I'm cool with the voice tone thing for those dogs...a soldier curled up behind a rock fearing for his life while the bullets are flying at him ...and adrenalin pumping aint gunna be nice and sweet with his commands. Army trains for real everytime...no matter what.

    Lol at the snakes in the water.....that bird was freaking out !!! What a great show. The add for next week showed the footage of last weeks show...i hope they got that wrong.

    I haven't watched the military type one yet.

    But as to dogs working with other people, this may be in their training?

    I have one bitch who is handled by lots of other people even though I trained her and she accepts this. My other dogs that I've only trained and handled in the ring won't listen or cooperate with other people. And I might add the other people I ask to handle her are very capable.

    At the kennels we had, (she has since found a home) a beagle that came in for in house training and was never collected by her owners. All the staff know she knows how to sit, drop, come, stay etc and we treat her so. She was given to an NDTF student as her assignment dog and the student was not told she already knew many commands and exercises and she mucked up terribly and walked all over the student. She was given to a different student the following intake and was a different dog. I think some people are natural leaders and others need to get into the mindset.

    In some cases training in other cases just the dogs personality and breed tendencies. My Border collies will work for anyone regardless of the fact that only I have handled and trained them. My cattle dogs would rather walk over broken glass than work for or listen to anybody else.

    I think that is basically what the show is all about. That idea that they need to be a leader to their dogs for them to be happy and well balanced pooches. Which of course is the most important thing to know when you have a dog. But I still don't believe that that realisation alone would result in the kind of well-mannered dogs that they show after they "trained" the humans. And I think there is a danger in portraying it like it is. You can still screw a dog up even if you have the best intentions.

    But I do think it is great that those people get to see that well trained dogs aren't robots subjected to their owners' whims, but that they really thrive when they have boundaries and structure and are treated like dogs instead of human babies.

    We watched a couple that haven't been shown on tv here yet. Man, some of those young owners are such princesses!!! Both boys and girls, might I add.
