Bono has been competitively trained for sports. His performance is extremely flashy. In just a short period we have already taken Bono from a sport orientation of protection to becoming a formidable defense against a violent threat. This is prior to entering our Elite Family & Estate Protection Dog program. What stands out the most is Bono with children. He not only enjoys them tremendously. When it comes to tolerating and enduring the stress caused by a lot of children (think terrible twos) with Bono it seems to not even register as anything whatsoever. Bono even goes to the extreme of gently taking balls from toddler's hands. Also letting toddlers take balls out of his mouth! If you have toddlers Bono is the ultimate family companion and protector.
