Yes I get that, but like I said saying a dog is high drive and has a high threshold to get into drive to me is an oxymoron. I'm not talking so much about chasing prey or bite work I'm talking more along the lines of getting nice, drivey obedience. A dog that is high threshold (for drive) will NOT show much drive because lets face it, obedience is boring. Now can that dog really be considred extremely high drive?
Review my **DRAFT** graphic on prey drive.. the part about moving thresholds needs to say capture that you can only slightly move thresholds... that you can't fundamentally and dramatically change any of the dogs genetically based behaviors
Also, not to scale. Don't beat me up about "a nice high drive dog won't activate for a ball thrown??? You sir, are stupid". I rushed
