Michael puts this so well and it is the truth as handlers we need to see and accept our dogs for who they are. As instructors we need to constantly remind are students that all dogs can't be good at everything, it makes them no less a dog, a companion, friend nor will it undermine the loyalty a dog gives us unconditionally. Thank you Michael for another informative clip.

Great topic! Now for the next step - how to ascertain your dogs' capabilities.. And maybe, if you're game, how to recognise ones own shortcomings as a trainer. Thanks for this great video :-)

Right on! Applies to human beings as well!! Our schools and the 'politically correct' should keep this in mind.
