Well Bannon is now one years old. He has done so much in his short life so far. He has completed Puppy kindergarten and continues to train with you and the other trainers at Consummate K9 with his obedience. Bannon's confidence is unreal. He has absolutely no problem with any social encounters with humans or other animals. His desire to please is amazing. I believe this desire to please is what makes him so trainable. Bannon seems to pick things up so quickly. When I'm with friends and there dogs it seems that I have an unfair advantage with Bannon. I can't stress enough how quick this breed learns. I would recommend this line of dogs to anyone who is looking for a great companion or working dog. There is so much potential for this line of malinois.
