I am glad to 'hear'you say that in that I too am one of those 'why?' people. So much so that my friends often make fun of me for being the 'question queen'! I can't wrap my head around the 'why' of wanting to buy a dog that's fully trained? Where's the sense of accomplishment? Partnership? Fun? Having a defense dog in a group of prey dogs like I do definitely poses a challenge in terms of figuring out the how piece with Blade but it's amazing the results you see once you've hit on the right approach.
