Kennel links[edit]

I have now twice removed links from this page to private kennels. External links to private businesses that an article is not about are generally disallowed on Wikipedia, as they tend to be used for advertising. Please read our external links policy , especially the following in the section about what is not allowed to be linked:

* Links mainly intended to promote a website. See External link spamming.
* Links to web pages that primarily exist to sell products or services, or to web pages with objectionable amounts of advertising. 

and do not add links to businesses/kennels to this page (or similar pages) again. keɪɑtɪk flʌfi (talk) 15:54, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Maybe a better formulation[edit]

I'm no wikipedia editor, but IME as an owner of such a dog "Because of this dog's ability to bond strongly with his master, training should only be started once the Mioritic puppy is already accustomed to the owner/trainer." would be closer to the truth if it would be rephrased as "Because of this dog's tendency to bond strongly with his master and his master's family, training should only be started once the Mioritic puppy has become attached to its master, and should always be done with participation of its master." It might also be useful to state that given their independent nature, their strong (but not necessarily dominant) personality and their history of a working breed, they're not very keen on mindless games such as ball fetching, or jumping over obstacles, but like play fighting a lot (they can easily keep up play fighting for hours, and you don't need any other fitness training, if you are up to it), which is why the need to be taught early on (at 3-4 months of age already) how strong they are allowed to bite in play fights with humans, and what the signals for play fighting being allowed are, or they'll seem aggressive to most people not knowing them, and wound people without intention. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.118.0.47 (talk) 18:48, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
