Default Imprint aggression towards dogs

Just out of curiosity.
With the large number of imprint Goshawks flown.
Do many of you have any issues of aggression towards the dog?
My old female imprint would happily nail my Brittany if the mood took her.
Sadly I lost her last season and I'm considering another imprint or maybe stick with PR.
I have heard of several others who have problems with their imprints aggression towards their dog, especially the females.
The male PR gos I fly has only occasionally chased the dog away from his lure if the dog gets too close, but he never nails the dog.

I had an imprint german gos back in 2010 and he nailed my cocker bitch
and proper three times, unfortunately the cocker would not work with birds again.
I put it down to frustration on the goss's part with me not supplying enough
Quarry at the time.

Only ever happened with my female whilst she was on the bow in the garden if the dogs went within bate range!

In the field she knew why they were there so never any issues with any dog.

Perhaps the size of the dog in question plays a part in it??
The smaller spaniel types being more susceptible to getting grabbed.

Waveraider I totally agree that frustration with a lack of success is a definite cause of this behaviour.
