I have had retrievers and the last 13 years mastiff. Opposite end of the energy spectrum but I'm sure if I can handle 200ld neapolitan male I can roll with a gsp.
Probably will be mostly pet. I do spend a good bit of time with my dogs and I live close to work and can bring them with me if I want. Have several acres of woodland behind my home. Pretty much going to play it by ear with the training. All my dogs will always have the basics down. Firm believer that if you can't make your dog sit, stay, come until you command you don't need a dog. Right now not interested in trials. But never know once I get the dog might get the fever
Getting him first week January. Can't wait.
