About a year ago, I met one and she's truly big and very gentle too but have little excitement problem. Do you plan to get one?
I've read and seen in videos that CO's are generally great with kids. And as I understand it, all CO's should have an active defense drive. Doesn't at all mean vicious - just means there's an elevated need for proper socialization, so the dog can correctly interpret what a real threat is. I just want as much personal experience feedback as I can get before getting a CO for my home.Why shouldnt a CO be good with kids. They should be gentle family dog and soft natured with kids. People dont understand dogs. LGDs are used to guard flocks. Must never harm stock but be fearless and even lethal if just being there isnt enough of a deterent.
On a few occasions of putting my older son in time out he cried. What is the CO nature. To be concerned, want to comfort him and then lay in front of the chair. They take good care of their charges. Now let some try to come on the property and youd see the opposite side. Working dogs often havd dr j and mr h peronalities. People see aggression Defense Drive and assume vicious.
