I think it boils down to, finding a knowledgeable breeder, who knows what they are producing and can peg their puppies, placing them in the correct home, and that home being realistic on what they want and don't want out of a dog.
The majority of my past dogs were DDR and I found them to be easy trainers, biddable, sound, balanced dogs.
I now have a mainly czech girl with about 1/4 DDR and yes, she is much higher energy I would say than my past dogs, she has been just as easy and biddable as the others.
Again, if I didn't have breeders that knew what I wanted and didn't want, I probably wouldn't have/had some really great dogs that were a good fit for me
