    They're too smart to be family pets, they need the engagement and purpose of a job to be satisfied.

      they can be family pets just fine. just actually spend time with your dog instead of leaving them alone for 12 hours at a time.

      dogs don't really get purpose, most people don't either. they have activity and rest. only the breeder knows or cares what a dog is meant to do.

      think of working dogs like this: if you were bred to be a coal miner so you were shorter, stronger, had better stamina, and had better night vision, would you have to mine coal to be happy? or would you just be more reliable and less miserable mining coal than most people?

        You're ignoring the psychology aspect, which is selected for at the same time as the physicality. If you were bred to be a coal minor not just physically but to a degree where it was pleasant and interesting, then yes, you would be happy doing it in general.

          Not really. You might have a neurotic, stress-inducing desire to seek out a dark space or an enclosed one, whenever you saw one, at the worst.

          Like herding dogs just like to stalk stuff, any stuff, their modified prey drive is extremely strong, but doing that is actually stressful for them and puts them in a very edgy, paranoid pursuit mode. They do not understand their job or enjoy it, it's called "drive" for a reason. They can go their entire life never doing it and be extremely happy.

          would you rather be a coal miner and accumulate all that injury and disease on the job or just a normal dude who strongly prefers cold, dark tunnels and maybe work as a night security guard in a garage

    They have a lot of energy but if you arent a lazy frick they are a blast. I put a harness on mine, put on some rollerblades and have him pull me around the sidewalks and empty roads at around 30mph while sipping a tall boy 🙂

    How do you get one if you're from South America?

      you'll have to ship it from louisiana via boat, plane, or truck, avoiding having it stolen by people who think it's a fight dog just cus it's active and not fluffy. Start breeding and selling them for profit so you can justify it.

    Because the average dog owner leaves their dog alone with nothing to do but bark for 8-10 hours. When they do this with working dogs, they are more intelligent and can do more than bark. They also destroy shit for fun and escape, because frick their owner, they're a worthless food dispenser.

    >but I-
    99.9% of dog owners leave their dog alone behind a 4 foot tall chain link fence with nothing to do but bark for the duration of their shift work plus the commute. And then if a smart dog destroys their house and runs off, they say dogs are awful pets. No they never think "industrial society was a mistake, medieval peasants have more free time", they think the wife and husband being away for 8-10 hours and the kids being raised at daycare is normal.

    it's a working dog. many people don't need what they provide or can find another, adequate, working dog that is closer to them and probably cheaper.
