Hi! The reason why i changed my mind about getting a pup from Rebholzer is because her dogs are from working lines. This will be my first Doberman and i am afraid it will me too much of a Doberman for me.
Sounds good - 1st time dobe owners, need pups with low-medium prey drive.
- not over the top high prey drive From Canadian & USA championship lines:
Our 1977 Tanya, was our 1st girl
...medium drive and easiest enough to learn together, with dedication.
Our 2000 Amy, was our 2nd girl
...love prey drive with an insane desire to please, its family / human smart like
a +3 year old toddler and we puppy trained her to gain needed confidence. Several years later, she protected wife from a GST/Lab dog attack. Just a well balanced dobe...she would risk her life, to protect loved ones, if needed.
Our 2012, Kelly was our 3rd girl
...high prey drive & independent / a nightmare to train.
- only for the experienced owner as a puppy, or she would have ended in rescue
The low prey pup had an awesome on/off stitch and could read people & perceive danger (she was a gift to live with).
Pup #3 couldn't separate a bad guy from a lady pushing a baby carriage (on street). Her sharp senses wired in (eyes, ears, nose). Red zone triggered moments, reduced her brain processing power ...so take your pick !!
