Low drive shepherd is a relative term. What would be high drive for a basset hound is low for a shepherd.

When they're little, food drive is awesome to have. Getting the treat is their payday for their hard work. One of mine refused to train for treats but she'd do anything to get me to shake that tug. Otto is very food driven but he's fiercely independent, if he's distracted for a reason, I could have a prime rib in my pocket and he wouldn't care because he's focused on what he thinks he needs to do.
