i agree that is the owners bad, a pup is like a child it is taught how to react. my first dog was a boykin, had her for 13yrs, awesome dove dog, and warm weather duck, but when it got cold , felt very sorry for her, so got a lab to do the brunt of work. i would have another one, if i did not have two labs. great family dog. genetics does play a factor, but not always. foundation stock in boykins, is the best imo there is. only time any dog is not worth something, is because the owner or trainer did that to them. just my .02 and trust me i dont hunt like a weenie nor does my dogs
