Schutzhund and Temperament
I have a five month old male GSD that I've been very particular about socializing. He has the absolute best temperament of any of my past GSDs, as my reasons for having him are different than my past GSDs. He's incredibly friendly, is always with me regardless of where I go and never meets a stranger. He meets everyone enthusiastically (sometimes a bit too enthusiastically, as he excitedly piddles on the feet of "new" people).
I'm working on his prey drive at the moment and plan to further his Schutzhund training, but I don't want to change his temperament (I'd like to start bite training after he has his adult teeth). Has anyone seen a change in temperament in conjunction with Schutzhund training? Could I be expecting the best of both worlds?
