Why do you discredit someone who hand less multiple animals per day but because they aren't a breeder their experience doesn't count?

Why I am not discrediting MissK at all and am not sure how you could assume that. I am just trying to ascertain her level of experience on this subject because I am sure most would like to know. I am sure that she didn't feel I was discrediting her or she would't have answered the question so eloquently. :wink:

I have a few minutes right now and feel a few things should be explained. First, there are a lot of dogs out there that wouldn't need socialization had they been given the opportunity and the place to go out and explore on their own without having to do retrieving drills etc at 8 weeks old. Second, there are good dogs that just weren't given the opportunity to learn naturally that will benefit from artificial socialization....but they will seldom be what they could have been. Third, there are the un-confident young dogs that no amount of socialization will help much. They were spooky when born and they will be spooky to a large extent when they die. You just can't fix the genetics. What it boils down to is that you can't look at a dog, I can't look at a dog, no one can look at a dog and say they can pick out a dog that is or isn't socialized. Socialization just isn't the magic band aid it is believed to be by many.
