I've had rotties all my life 30+ years. I've always had gotten show line dogs. I took a diffrent path this time around. And WOW the amount of drive,intensity and intelligence is a whole different dog. My past rotties were smart but I've never been able to achieve so much so fast with a dog. For those who have had both sides of the fence is this norm ? By achieving things I mean I've had this dog maybe 10 days and he's potty trained, sit,down and comes when called by his name. Not bragging, just excited.
