No, Jax is a 75lb puppy who likes to cuddle, I have no idea what your talking about. But yeah, I know what you mean, they flip like a switch. Mali's go until they are dead, literally. They go through the window instead of going through the open door sometimes. He kills me with the loft.

I love the shepards we train with, both German and Dutch, but Jax is just something, maybe I am bias because he is mine.

Narc, attack, patrol, and tracking. Oh the fun times. Yes, they do bite hard, when people are bruised through the suit and have a hard time walking, it is a very hard bite.

Certain dogs (more training) can find it buried underground in a plastic bag. But remember, they have to be able to find it where people hide it.

Airports also tend to use labs as well.

For narcotic detection, all you need is a dog with a high play drive and a handler with lots of commitment.

It takes more than that. But those are the two main building blocks. You also can't really have just any breed of dog, you want one with a nose.

One of my new neighbors trains k9's. I was out on a walk and saw their setup, they had a junk pile, I assume it was for training and just not trash.
