All Champions are not equal.

A working dog is a reflection of the trainers, the dog, the handler, and the dog's pedigree. When a dog is able to achieve working titles, it proves that the dog has the ability to work and demonstrate certain desired traits. Titles only offer us clue about the dog.... much is still a mystery. It is important to understand that two dog with the same title doesn't make the dogs equal. Many things can affect the performance of a working dog and the level of their achieved titles. Good training can make a average dog appear stronger. Undesired traits can be hidden with good training. Great trainers can bring out the good traits and try to hide the issues. If you don't know what your looking for, a good trainer can hide many things. If this dog had an average trainer, what would the outcome be? Who wants the type of dog that requires a master in dog training tricks? Dogs with  issues can gain advantage by trialing on familiar grounds, work with familiar decoys, or objects. Strong dogs might never reach their full potential if they have bad training or limitation. It is important to use titles as aids to gaining a hypothesis about certain dogs and pedigrees. It is crucial to go meet the dogs and see them work. To gain a understatement of the lines strengths and weakness. A pedigree full of titles are nice, but the titles don't always answer all the needed questions about a dog.
