Today I will talk about the Fight Drive. The fight drive is genetic and can not be trained or taught. The dog either has it or he/she doesn't. A dog with high fight drive can also be social but when presented an opponent he/she will strike with intent and purpose. A high fight drive dog is very confident he/she will win the battle. This confidence is something that can be, not necessarily taught, but heightened. A dogs confidence can be raised through training. This drive is very important when we train full service dogs and personal protection dogs. When given the command we want these dogs to engage the subject to protect us or our families. We also want these dogs to have the confidence that they will win every time. We never want these dogs to second guess themselves.
This concludes the drives that a dog possess.
We still have Dutch Shepherd Puppies available! We will be getting up to date pictures of the pups this week and posting them here, on our Facebook page, and our Instagram page.
