PURE BREED OR MIXED - ARE THERE TRAINING DIFFERENCES?

The pure bred dog is something fine to look upon.

It is an animal that has been refined over the centuries to reach its pure, unadulterated state today. These dogs have been bred for temper and bloodline from early times. Yet there is a dog that goes back in history even further.

The Mixed Breed or Mutt as some people would call them. This dog is a very ancient mix of pedigrees that, while not always the best of mixes, is most assuredly unique.

The temperament of these animals is usually quite good and they tend not to have the congenital defects of their pure bred counterparts. It is possible to produce similar animals thru breeding efforts but as a general rule, mixed breeds are generally a unique animal that wonít be replicated. But what of their training capacity?

Is there any reason to train these animals in any different manner than their pure bred brethren?

By and large, the answer is no. These animals are fully capable of learning any behavior that the pure breed is capable of and usually more. Due to better temperaments and high intelligence, these mixed breed animals frequently score quite highly in obedience pre-tests and are very trainable.

While pure breed animals have been refined over the centuries, this has occasionally led to inbreeding of the animals and the specific breed has suffered in the way of congenital defects and maladjusted temperaments.

The mongrel has not been so afflicted and while it may not always have the handsome lines of a Great Dane or the gorgeous coat of the Chow Chow, it can certainly have the better characteristics inherited from either of these lines and more.

A mixed breed dog can have the house pet qualities of a Poodle alongside the protective qualities of a Doberman and the maternal eye of a Saint Bernard. While possessing all of these qualities, the mixed breed may leave behind the overly aggressive and high strung tendencies of the pure bred ancestry.

This figured into the equation along with the price factor of the animals and it is quite easy to see why so many households happily have a mixed breed pet. These animals have the ability to display intelligence, show care, obey commands and circumvent obstacles. They have been doing so for thousands of years and show no signs of stopping.

The only real difference between training of a mixed breed animal and a pure breed dog is the ability to cross platforms with less transition trouble. If your dog is a mix between, say, an Irish Setter and a Red Bone Coon Hound, then you have a dog that quite possibly could be trained in the hunting of both birds and game mammals without much confusion.

Perhaps the mix is between a Husky and a German Shepherd?

This would give you a large dog with both good defence skills and the muscle for real workouts like long days of hiking. Thus by a simple exchange, you can gain much for very little loss. The animal may no longer be pure bred and the aesthetic quality may, or may not, degenerate a bit but you gain much in the way of a responsive and easily trained dog.

Looking at these facts, it is hard to understand why the world has such a population explosion of homeless mixed breed pets. After all, the animal seems to be the better choice from the trainerís point of view.

That being said there are instances where a mixed breed of dog is not acceptable. If you are training animals for the purpose of professional dog showing competitions, then by all means choose a pure breed animal and train them for the specific purposes for which the breed was created.

Also for certain usages such as military animals, pure breeds seem to be the animal of choice for the purpose of uniform appearance, although a number of military animals do not meet this qualification.

Aside from these or a similar circumstance, the author sees no reason to limit your search for a pet to strictly pure breed animals. Rather, do something good for yourself and for the homeless pet population and adopt a mixed breed animal.
