Do you prefer a high drive puppy...or one more laid back?
I have my new puppy Ninja, she is almost 14 weeks now. She is awesome. She is more laid back, except her playing spurts with our other two dogs. We bring her to the dog park almost every day...and she relaxes instead of going wild. She will walk up to strangers to be pet, survey the area, then come back and lay by our feet. It's truly just her personality. Do you prefer a dog more laid back? Or do you prefer the (what seem to be sought after in some cases) high drive puppies? Also, which do YOU think is better for training? I find this interesting....when I was little we had a VERY high drive puppy that looked exactly like Ninja (black GSD). She was extremely smart, but didn't listen all the time because of being so high drive. Ninja on the other hand seems to be picking it up faster, and seems like she will be a little more loyal and dependable than the previous dog from when I was a young one. I would like to hear YOUR opinions. I know every dog is different and has their own personality, so PLEASE don't think I am completely throwing any type of dog into a certain category as far as brains, trainability, etc. goes. I'm just going by my own experiences here, and would like to know your experiences.
