I have a 7mo old drathaar. And up to this point only had labs. Maddie (drathaar) is the most intelligent dog ive ever had and i say that with the love of my life being Mini a black lab female that was stolen. Her ability to pick up things is amazing. It doesnt take long at all. Now the flipside of their intelligence leads to their downside imo. I think of labs as eager to please dogs, and drathaars not nearly as much. They are very smart and have a very strong drive but not eager to please if that makes any sense. Also, labs have what i call a stupid intelligence. Which imo makes them easier to train. They arent as loving as other breeds. All in all they are great dogs, and beautiful. coming from only labs its been a learning curve and adjustment. Dont know if id have another one, but the ones ive seen are impressive.
