Social problems against people and dogs. Dogs that have really bad nervs against people and dogs outside off the family. Some just show that they are uncomfortable others are so bad that they need to be put down since they pose a danger.
I have myself breed dogs that has posted a danger againt people and where put down. The dogs didn’t have a good life and there owners where constantly on alert and did not have a good life wirh there dogs. And I remember when I posted it that I where contacted by other breeders telling me that it was probably a «owner problem». No it was not… it was a dog problem.
Still, later I was contacted by other owners that could tell that they had or had earlier had a kelpie with same problem. But still not many breeders talk about it. Its the same answer if you ask «owner problem, they could not handle a kelpie». Let sit down and talk: a dog don’t get aggressive and afried off the world because the owner can’t give them good enough obedience or handle the activity level. They can get out off controll, jump ++ but they don’t get aggressive and run away from the world do to a owner that can’t «handle them». And its not «integrity» that they bite or growl when handled..
Breeders need to get a reality check and sit down and have a good long talk with them self! There are too many kelpies like that and even if they do handle the competition environment remeber before breeding that very few dogs JUST live on the competition arena. Its 99% around the daily enviroment!
