He is a medium drive dog. Overall, low energy and easy to keep, but will run and swim with you all day if asked. I can take him anywhere. I trained him to IPO3, FH and he was a very natural tracker. Definitely my heart dog.

I have one right now, WGSL sire, WL dam. He is 8 months old, nice dog. I wasn't going to get one from the breeder (she offered me a puppy in lieu of stud fee) because I didn't really like the dam's pedigree, but I changed my mind last minute and took the puppy. I figured I'd just let him grow out and see how he turned out, possibly sell/place him as an active pet later, but so far I like him as a sport prospect. He is training for flyball and disc dog pretty seriously (age appropriate stuff), already dock dives and lure courses, and will be starting agility after our long vacation. He's on the small size (not really short, but I keep him lean). He's not a breeding prospect, he's social and awesome in any environment (he's traveled all over, many tournaments/shows/events) but he doesn't really have the toughness I like in a dog that I would consider breeding and working (Schutzhund or other protection sports) more seriously. His father is a tougher dog, his mother is in my opinion soft for a working line (hence my original decision to not take a puppy, I didn't think she would preserve the toughness and more forward aggression that I like to see). I'm pretty attached to him and he's a really fun puppy to own and train.

Liesje, how did you work with your pup appropriately for disc dog ( I'm super interested in the sport)...but I know it can be high impact for growing puppies.

I have a 3/4 ASL x 1/4 DDR male. He is awesome! He has good drives for working and retrieving. Very biddable. He did try to get to the weird stranger in his temperament test. Does anything I ask of him - agility, obedience, rally, etc. Likes to swim.

Keep him on the ground. I don't throw far anymore. When I started, he could catch pretty long throws but never jumped up to get them. I was using a disc that's actually a water toy, heavy and soft. He would get under it and let it fall into his mouth. Once he started jumping for it, I quit those long tosses. Now I only toss in my front yard about 10-20' tosses, or I throw longer "rollers". I also waiting until he had his hips and elbows checked before doing any disc at all. We do stuff that doesn't involve jumping and catching, like going around my body both ways, going through my legs, *waiting* in front of me and actually paying attention to my hand signals (not just running in circles until I throw a disc). He's never going to do the trick type stuff like vaults and flips, he will to the toss and catch and some of the UpDog games that are more appropriate for the breed/size.

Awesome! That gives me a place to start.

the answer depends on the makeup of the pedigree for each partner , work and show .
