Default Breeding more for the moderate.

Why don't more breeders shoot for the golden middle? More for moderate drives and higher thresholds.
Seems to me that would help the breed considerably.

Is it because too many WL breeders are concerned about IPO?
Too many SL breeders for looks and maybe gait.

With both having too narrow a focus.

I'm not talking about GSDs being bred specifically to be pets or as some say Goldens in a GSD body.

Most people don't want the bad nerves and health problems that plague the breed. Don't a lot of them come from a too tight and narrow focus on specific traits?

What's the matter with middle of the road dogs? That's what most people need and want.
