    Default is there any such thing as too much "Bottom"?

    My pup now has the ability to do things regardless of the results.. so far nothing I've asked is too much. Only thing that worries me is he is 'balls to the wall" when training and when even resting he is wanting more...
    He got his name from retrieving a bumper through a multi-flora rose bush at 3 months old. Went through it going and coming... tough pup..

    According to the cover of the new Us Weekly I saw laying in the rack next to the toilet, she has a new body at 44.

    We all have our own definitions of bottom. By my definition, a dog can't have too much.

    But, they can have enough that you as the trainer/handler aren't able, or willing, to reach it.
    And if you don't, you won't ever be able to master that dog.

    Semantics, drive vrs bottom vrs style vrs fast. You will have to be more definitive for lack of a better word. You left yourself wide open with that one OP.Now let the debate begin.
