    IMO breed is the first element to determine the dogs capacity, and pre-testing the pup at 8 weeks will determine the dogs ability. You will never get a Bloodhound to be a personal protection dog like a Mali can, with any amount of training. I have had both, and trained both but also worked with mixed breeds (not mine) which can do well but usually require more training to get there. I would never turn my nose up on a mixed breed, and my hat is off to any handler who can pass the same test as the pure blood lines do.

    The purists would string me up, but my dream dog is a Brittany/Wirehair mix. Both great noses, with a little more size for geese but not too much dog for my house.
