How can I actually learn to read and understand pedigree’s and bloodlines?
In the next few years I would like to get a working female GSD puppy. I would like to train her in IPO/Schutzhund and possibly some personal protection. If she meets all the health and temperament requirements I would like to breed her.
After doing research just about everyone says for Schutzhund/IPO, personal protection etc the puppy will need to come from good working blood lines.
What exactly is good working blood lines?
How can I learn to look at a dogs pedigree and its blood lines and determine what it would be good for?
