I haven’t , happily. And there is not this risk, at least not with my dogs, cause i always study a lot before put my dogs to mate. It is not only my responsability, it is a social responsability.
What do you do to be sure that your dogs are good for the working that they were created?
I see that by training my dogs. By looking at them training, i can tell if they want to run, if they are doing that as a funny thing to do, not as a job, and they go as they ar going to play, spontaneously.
