I was just wondering about the differences.
I don't think anyone else can answer this question for you.Ok, which one makes a better pet with schutzhund as a side hobby with a club that meets once a week?
Of course it is desirable, and necessary to have an off switch.I like the idea of WLs because I think the breed's origins are closer to the standard. The only thing I was wondering about is it desirable to have a WL that has a 'shut-off' switch.
Is it okay to want a WL that can be calm around other dogs and can have discretion (looking to his/her master) as when to be protective or act? I suppose it's possible with training and a lot of socialization (with other people and dogs)?
That's what I thought. I was just a bit unsure if most of it was due to training and not as much due to the personality of the dog. Police and utility dogs must be able to 'stop' on a dime on command but much of it is training.Of course it is desirable, and necessary to have an off switch.
And discretion/neutralness is also very important.
Balance is key....
I think some people get the wrong idea about how working lines are.
