A Double Dose of Testosterone

I have had a few dogs that seemed to have an extra amount of testosterone on account they look to be in excellent shape at all times and look like well muscled 3 year old hunting dogs at ten years of age...

I have one right now that reminds me of a high powered race horse chopping at the bit to run his race...he is dominant...doesn’t really start trouble but doesn’t mind pushing his weight around...I like his looks, movement and the power about him as well as his hunting ability...but a little too high spirited for my liking...I usually can really like a dog of this type but two things I don’t like about him that causes me not to have him as my favorite...

He doesn’t tolerate puppies or young dogs messing with him...he likes his space which at times can be a problem for me...it took forever to break him from coming up from behind me and putting his teeth on my hand...so he will never sire any pups based on these two issues...

Anyone else gone through similar scenarios?

No but?

If your not going to breed him, then I'd get him cut. I had one cut this year and no regrets. He wasn't breeding material but a nice enough dog. If you had a female in heat on the place he was a real pain, made a lot of noise. He's out there now kenneled next to a female in full heat, not making a sound. It settled him down some in general too.
Money well spent.

Oh what dog feed do you feed? Is it real high protein, if so I'd try maintenance.

I don't have any like that cause I just won't put up with it. If I can't work a pup with it I probably wont have it long. I don't care for a sissy dog either that can't take some ruffing around. There is a happy medium.

Thanks for your opinion Darrin...

Pam...as a pup he fit in just fine at about a year old he started maturing and the difference between him and his sibling brothers started to show...I tend to like alpha type dogs that can take care of business but will get along well with minimal intervention...

According to WildWilly’s book I will make a few adjustments on puppy raising and I think things will be better with the next set of pups I will raise...

He is not a growly dog just likes his space...but I absolutely did not like him putting his teeth on me even though it was in a playful manner...according to what I read I was the cause of that behavior...

Serious question what does protein have to do with anything.
