Why I choose to work my dogs

Let’s face it, not very many breeders or Neo’ owners elect to do so. They make this choice for various reasons, which is solely up to them. If they bought and feed the dog, it is their dog or program. I am not here to judge them, I also do not force my clients to work their dogs. I breed towards a balanced animal that Can perform but will also do well in a active home environment, when trained properly. My preference and selection is geared towards a higher energy dog due to the activities I train for.

Why I choose to work my dogs? Because working with them forms a unshakeable bond between the dog and I. Training them properly to bite doesn’t make them dangerous. It makes them safer, because the dog looks to me prior to responding. Working a dog makes a partnership, the dog proves its worth by performance. It also allows me to see it’s faults and weaknesses. Which all dogs have, be it in mind or body there is no perfect animal. I personally want to know each dogs strength and weaknesses, as it allows me to create the next step in my program without having to guess and hope.

Personal protection is what I focus on training wise, but it is not the only or end all be all to train your dog within. Not every home or person has the time needed to dedicate to this type of training. To train a dog to bite is something to not take lightly and one must understand that to do so, you must take every precaution to ensure you have a safe animal around people and in public space. This form of training should never be ego driven, or done at home without a dedicated trainer. With that being said, Neapolitan Mastiffs can compete in many types of sports, to name a few dock diving, weight pull, nose work, barn hunt, tracking and agility can all be done with a Neo’ too. I find that Neo’s truly want to have a job, they thrive when they understand what is expected of them. If you are looking to work your Neo’ but unsure where to start, please don’t hesitate to message me. No matter if your dog is Mayhem bred or from another, I am always willing to help!
