She only ever bit my dad once and he was playing tug of war with her and she grabbed his hand by accident. As soon as she relised she let go and ran inside. Every picture from when I was a kid has her laying in the back ground. They may not be the best looking dog but she was the most loyal, well behaved dog.

    Good for you.........We do have them in our Tracking classes and they are pretty good at that, but we find as soon as they are off lead, nose hits the ground and away the go.
    Mind you there are always exceptions and always better trainers
    Pets are forever

    That's certainly true of a lot of scent hounds, it certainly used to be true with my dog, but since I put the work into harnessing that drive I have found she works quite reliably.

    The problem I actually had with my dog was that she was VERY scent driven, even more so than a lot of other beagles I'd meet, I just had to find a way to make that work for me. I think the trainer and the methods they use play a big part in how good the dog is.

    Actually, here is my dog working off leash in a novice run out, this was our first time doing a run out under trial conditions. She wasn't working as well as she can, she certainly can give more focus and drive, but it wasn't bad and we had a lot of shocked spectators who didn't expect a beagle to be capable of working well

    I used to have Rotties & they will always have a huge part of my heart & I agree it's all to do with how they are brought up & trained.
    My Bruno was so devoted to me & people used to laugh at how he'd just sit & idolize(look lovingly) me. He was a sook but if he thought I needed protecting he would turn from sook to insanly protective.
    Funny story, Bruno was a typical rottie in that he was very vocal & went around grumbling etc, anyway I had a new partner & he'd been living with me & the dogs for a few days & was getting on well. So I left him home whilst I nicked out for milk & when I got home he was sitting in a chair with Bruno & Bubba(tibetan mastiff) sitting either side of him. He says I've have been stuck not allowd to move because everytime he moved an inch both boys would grow at him, lol. I think Bubba & Bruno had probley growled at each other because he was patting them & they where always so competive & he toke it as growling at him. Dare say the dogs caught on real quick & made a bit of a game of it, the buggers.
    Bruno also once got into bed with a teenage boy visiting my brother & poor kid was so scare he gave the bed up, lol.... I found him curled up on the floor next to the bed & Bruno sprawled on his back head on pillow in the bed, lol.....

    true rottie character,

    if im doing housework or something not watching the pups closely when i realise they are gone without a doubt they will be on my bed. little black hairs everywhere and those eyes praying that you havnt seen them. they then turn to rubber while you try with all your strength to pull a dead weight of 55kg rotty off your bed.

    they are very loyal dogs, i would not consider my dogs guard dogs and i would never want them to be. they are pets and family and thats all.
