East German or Czech Dogs?

Is there any noticeable difference between their temperaments, drives, etc? I'm looking for a schutzhund prospect and I haven't seen anything that would state the use of one over the other. Do you have a preference, if so why?

Re: East German or Czech Dogs?

If I were getting a SchH "prospect" I wouldn't get a DDR lined dog. I would go with a WG working line dog or a dog that was Czech+ WG.

(I am not "bashing" DDR lines dogs. My youngest is 3/4 DDR 1/4 Czech.)

Re: East German or Czech Dogs?

My east german boys have been pretty mushy. They had more than their share of bravado and weren't afraid to put someone in their mouth but both of them were mommy's boys.

lol, it's not me making them that way! My west german workingline bitch is hard as nails, she'd give both those boys what was coming to them and they'd back off as if to say Yes Mame!

Look at the individual dogs, parents, etc. You'll find good and bad in any line.

Yeah, I'm aware of this. That's why I want to taking this as slowly as possible. I want a dog that will be a good match for me.

Re: East German or Czech Dogs?

From what I have learned, DDR dogs don't do good in SchH because they look at the sleeve as being a "joke", not real. They think before they do whatever they are going to do and tend not to want to bite a "sleeve". They do excellent in real protection work which is why a lot of police dogs are from DDR/Czech lineage.

Re: East German or Czech Dogs?

i think it depends on the linage myself. i have seen both good and not so good in both ddr, czech, and WG lines. i have experienced all of them and personally prefer the DDR. in my experience with the ddr, they are very focused on the work, and are willing to do anything.
i have a ddr female who fits that discription to a tee.

Re: East German or Czech Dogs?

Grace is all DDR, not for schutzhund. She's getting way to civil for sport. She doesn't like any nonsense, lol Prey drive? the only prey drive she has is for the cats and that's only recently (she's 2 1/2)
