Is what you described re trialling typical of DDR dogs in your opinion?

by sentinelharts on 15 February 2017 - 12:02

I can't say what is typical. I can only share what I know from my own experiences

I am currently working and trialing another DDR Male. Vilko von der Feuersaule. He is a completely different dog. He is high drive, high ball drive, high fight drive, balanced between prey and defense and very clear headed. He is a cat and small animal killer, he is male dog dominant, he is suspicious of strangers (in a powerful aggressive way, not a fearful slinky way) He is all business and rarely seeks affection.

I think DDR dogs are less suited for today's sport trials than some of the other lines but there are definitely DDR dogs out there that can do it and some that can do it well

So what is their niche?

by sentinelharts on 15 February 2017 - 12:02

They are usually exceptional trackers. I'm not sure they have a niche. Should they? I personally like dogs that can do it all. I am more impressed by dogs that can go out and herd livestock one day, trial in schutzhund or similar another day and that can be patient and gentle in a classroom full of children for show and tell...
