  1. i have personally worked with multiple breeds, many of which are listed above. Although the German Short haired pointer is stronger willed, higher levels of anxiety, which make conditioning more difficult, or time consuming. In my personal experiences, The German Short hair is the most intelligent and versatile breed that i have worked with. The Great Pyrenees is by far the most overlooked farm utility, herding dog. i am a fan of the Rotweiler and terrier breeds, yet i believe the German Short Hair and the Great Pyrenees could easily replace the Rot in your list. It is my mere opinion based on my personal experience.
