Arras is an great dog in every sense of the word. One of the greatest “well rounded” dogs period. His mental stability is truly genetic, not trained. His solid temperament extends beyond the training field. It shines through in his everyday life in how he negotiates new situations and novel environments: with little fanfare. He is social with people and other dogs.
Arras' working ability matches his forward, confident personality. He is strong, pushy, and athletic -- easily jumping maximum height/distance on all three French Ring jumps. He has a powerful deep grip and loves to "wrap" around the decoy whenever possible. His entries on the flee-attack routinely take down decoys.
True to his Contes d'Hoffman lineage, he is resilient to pressure. Arras is handler oriented and no handler aggression.
