A lot less, that’s for sure.What could you do at 15 weeks?
The German wirehaired, Or draadhaar as they are called here would be interesting. The guys that hunt with them wouldn’t want any other, but do complain that they are such tough and sharp dogs. Just now there was a convo about making sure they leave goats and sheep alone, or they will make sure the critters end up on the tableau. Given your background, that should be a matchNot really a gundog guy so can't help you there. All my experience was in protection dogs.
But as we transition to the country, a WH Vizsla or Drahthaar may be in my future.
He seems like a great dog. The key to follow is to make sure that you are way more fun than whatever else is around. A light longline is also going to help.
Have two of whatever he is retrieving. He gets the second thrown when he brings the one in his mouth anywhere near you. Build from there.
Personally I wouldn’t get one, and I’m 37 and quite fit. My property doesn’t warrant any guard dogs, I don’t have interest in protection work, and my neighborhood is so full of dogs that a tosa would probably be an accident waiting to happen.^The Japanese shun inbreeding (although the Tosa gene pool is relatively small, having gone through a bottleneck during WWII, as did many giant breeds around the world). Inbreeding is more common in Tosas bred elsewhere. In any event, I am through with the Tosas--it was a carnival of death! Besides, at my age, I'll be 80 in less than a year and a half, it would probably be imprudent to acquire any giant breed dog. I mean, I work out regularly, but to paraphrase Clint Eastwood in "Million Dollar Baby," "Old guy strong ain't strong enough!"
