Comment to 'Fearful Great Danes provide new insights to genetic causes of fear'
  • @IHeartGreatDanes This is a well thought out and written discourse on the state of the today with a bit of history thrown in. Your points are well made, and I agree with your position. I will challenge you to add something to the discourse. What are your thoughts on the transition from a working dog catching hogs or chasing other critters to strutting around a show ring or chilling at home.?

    Could it be that the change in function (not working) to the more sedentary lifestyle of pet and show have contributed to the lack of the prey drive and instilled some fearfulness.

    Thanks again for your very enlightened post.
