Do you have a high drive working-breed dog (e.g., German Shepherd, Belgian Malinois, Boxer, Rottweiler, Doberman, etc.)? Working breed dogs need a JOB
; they were bred with an inherent instinct to WORK
, and if that need isn’t met, you’re wasting the best part about having a working breed dog. It would be like keeping Rob Gronkowski
on the sideline! At 6′ 6″ and 265 lbs, that guy is just born to play football, and to leave him on the sideline, would be a horrible disservice to him and the sport of football.
Your dog was born with a high drive instinct and has strength, power, and intelligence, so get your dog off the bench and into the game. Your dog will love the sport of Schutzhund (direct German translation is “protection dog”, also known as IPO training - Internationale Prüfungs-Ordnung, Translation means International auditing rules or International Exam Rules), which involves three elements that include obedience, tracking, and protection.
