I'm not sure where I'd put Gaia's drives...it's safe to say they are moderate. She settles very well in the house and is okay if she doesn't get exercise every day. I have no idea if she is show lines/working lines as I got her from a BYB, my trainer thinks she's more working lines than anything.
We walk 10k a day, 5 in the morning and 5 at night so about 2hrs a day (I did this before I got her so she just became part of my routine). I try to throw in at least 3 5-10minute OB sessions seperate from what we do on our walks and she usually cons me with a few inside tug/fetch sessions while I'm winding down for the night.
We train IPO on Sundays with tracking starting at 8:30 in the spring/summer/fall which means I leave my house at 7:30am and get home around 5pm. Sunday's are officially dog days. In the summer we will move back outside and probably add in another training night through the week.
She has become my hobby which is fine as my boyfriend is part of a band and jams almost nightly so it's nice to have something to do when I get out of the house. We're at the point where I can take her every where with me and not worry so the countless hours and almost 0 me time during these 8 months has definately been worth it.
