Each of us, including the dog
, has a natural birth-given
drive. We know folks who are so easygoing that we can hardly hold a
conversation with them without looking at our watches every few
minutes. Others seem to be so wound up that they have trouble
standing still long enough to hear us out. This must mean that if we
were Hoytt Dobermans, we would be called actives
. And on this
note we ask that you look over the three key
follow, and choose the level that you would prefer in your next dog.
- LAID-BACK ... is not easily excited about things
going on around it. Going for walks is fine with a little
coaxing but if you go get the ball, Frisbee, or rope, it will
sit back and watch you play. An excellent choice for a quiet
environment where its second most favorite past-time is eating.
Not the choice where interaction with the 'kids' will be an
expected part of its life.
- MID-ACTIVE ... logically the most requested level. A
mid-active Dobe may take a bit longer to adjust to a home
schedule where it must eventually be on its own eight-plus hours
a day, but when you are ready to head out for your morning run
or walk around the park, the kid is ready. This is the right
level when there are children with similar energies. It is an
"I'm ready when you are" Dobe who can be patient in one
situation, laying on its bed at your office or at your feet in
the evening, or found waiting by the door when it thinks you
just might be willing to take it BYE-BYE one more time.
- ACTIVE ... the type of energy one wants in their
CEO's, that CEO's prefer in their management staff, optimum in
Triathlon competition, and in Dobes who are to join an active
family. These Hoytt Dobes are for those folks who may be
considering competition obedience, Agility trials and/or the
conformation ring as well as walking or running miles instead of
blocks; a Dobe who is ready to go on a word. In the end, a Dobe
with energy that never seems to wane yet is not hyperactive.
Adding even the most regimented training program
will not drastically alter the basic energy
level of a dog; it only adds control. Once freed
from a direct command the dog returns to its
basic level. Training can at best only
improve personality flaws, not eliminate them.
The ultimate way to go is selection based on
One more reason the most demanding buyer
turns to the House of Hoytt.
