Do I have a working dog and not Know it

Like I said before I train bella by myself and she loves every minute of it. Today we worked on barking when the door bell goes off or when someone knocks on the door and she loves it and it clicked for her right away does this mean my dog loves to work or no ? Because I don't know the true definition of "dog work"

In my experience, German Shepherds love to learn new things. Raina gets really excited at learning new stuff whether it is a trick or a command or anything. Their minds need to work and it makes them happy to have to think I believe.

If your dog's parents worked in Police or SAR - she can become a working dog with specialized training. If her parents are sport dogs - she, obviously, would succeed in sports if you join Schutzhund club. Dogs of Working Line are different, and experienced people try getting a puppy with inherited qualities. She is obedient, and, if she's very active and not too big in size - you might be able to try her in Agility. If you want to discover your dog's talents - you can evaluate her with different specialists. If you really bother.
