Hunt Drive: Demolition

 

This is just a short clip of Darla which I thought was just fun. It shows her hunt drive and determination. She had been systematically taking apart this wood pile and pallet for days. She had this much intensity and never even seen anything go into the pile. There is no prey drive involved, this is pure hunt drive and determination. One of the things that makes this dog special is her combination of high prey and high hunt drive along with a natural fight drive. She is a good example of genetics creating an old school, all around, solid working dog, but unfortunately would get passed over by many trainers of today because she is so well rounded. By this I mean trainers are looking for a dog with high play drive (which she actually has almost zero), bordering on obsessive and to a large degree unbalanced dogs. The reason for this is it is easier and faster to train these kinds of dogs and honestly takes less skill with a bigger margin of error to work in.
