I'm one of those people who has a fabulous dog, his potential far outweighs my handling skills or so I've been told but I have lofty goals for myself so we'll see..haha. He was purchased as an IPO dog and that's exactly what I've been doing with him, club training once a week but we do a little bit of training on a daily basis.
Even if something happened and he became a straight pet (he's still a pretty big pet) I don't think he'd ever be a couch potato as he's way too much dog to be content just laying around.
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole
