If a dog's genetics make it temperamentally unstable though, there's nothing that any amount of training, socialization or loving care can do.
Re: [Knotidoc] There are NO BAD DOGS.....its 100% the owners fault, right?
You also cannot "train out" the high herding drive of a work-bred Border Collie or the prey drive instinct of a hound dog. You need a balance of both good breeding & proper training/socialization to make a stable, well trained dog.
Yes all dogs have the ability to bite but I wouldn't say that a dog wouldn't bite the hand that will feed it. There are dogs out there that are just too unstable.
