UGH don't talk to me about doing nails!I can do 7 dobes by myself in half an hour. Then it's the gsp....doesn't matter how many people, it is impossible. If i got one nail a day, that's good. Last time she needed stitches, we had to have her sedated and we did them then. I really wanted to pull them (just kidding). Our breeder says that all their dogs are this way. We went over how we do the dobes (as baby puppies and all the way up) and they do the exact same thing we do, so I'm not sure what the problem is.
It was easier to microchip the pig, then it is to do remi's nails! and trust me, that was no fun either!!
I find a lot of the sporting breeds are that way. Never really thought about it a lot, but my spotty cross dog freaks over that, and not really anything else--don't know his heritage, but I've had tons of speculation he's part GSP, due to his markings, and I'm officially using this as an excuse for his behavior, from now on
Seriously, over the years, had a ton of GSPs in to the vet and the groom shop, that just could not abide their nails worked on.
OP, I've had a few in class. The ones I've been around haven't been quite as gregarious with other dogs as you come to expect hunting dogs to tend to be.
Had a few who were same-sex aggressive.
I love the look of them, and might
consider one someday, with all the caveats other folks already listed.
