I don't see how this could be true. A true working dog MUST have a good bond with the handler. How else could they do their jobs if they don't care to listen to the handler? I also think one of the marks of a great working dog is that it also has a good on/off switch so it knows when to settle in the home and just be a family dog. I take "working lines" to refer more to the intensity of a dog's drive and it's structure rather than how affectionate it is.Originally Posted By: DogBuddyI was speaking to someone about different "types" of GSDs and they said that Working lines are not as affectionate on average as show lines because they are more into working than bonding with the owner.
What do you think? Is this true?
