I was given a copy of the above titled book for Christmas, and for a novice ( me ) is a excellent read, which has really opened my eyes.
However, and suprisingly many pictures show Labradors gripping / baying / chasing roe and fallow does, and there is narrative stating that `50% of the 200 dogs on the Danish tracking register are evenly split between Labs or GWPs`. Reading previous SD threads, I know there are very experienced deer managers on here using labs, so my question is :- how do you train a generally good natured breed like a lab, in to a deer dog capable of the aggression needed for taking on and possibly bringing down a roe / fallow doe ??
I really don`t want to start a bun fight on breeds - but I am genuinely trying to find out more info, are GWPs more easily aggresive in this work, or is it purely how you train the individual - even if it is a lab ??
Thanks in advance
