Default Curious about Odin's pedigree

Odin von Janzhaus

I just added Odin to the pedigree database and looked at the 6 generation line breeding, looks like a lot of nice dogs back there. I am just kind of curious about what others thought of his pedigree? It really doesn't matter, he is who he is (the greatest dog in the world!) I got him from a "breeder" that didn't give me much info about the sire and dam, so all I really have to go off of is what other people know of the other players in his pedigree.

I will never breed him, just curious. There are a lot of things about him that I really like and WAY down the road when I am thinking of another dog I would like to find something similar to him I have heard LOTS of good things about Vito, but not much about some of the others in there. Anyone care to take a stab at it?

I dont know much about german dogs, but both Vito and Tom are considered highly desirable.

I know nothing about lineage, but he's beautiful! You should be very proud of him!

Thanks Rangersdad He is a truly awesome dog! I doubt that I will ever find another like him.

Tom is in both my dog's pedigrees...and they are VERY different dogs! I wonder if Tom brings different things when coming from Vito?

I don't know a ton about the pedigree outside some of thebigger names. I knew a littermate to alma auto dam and she was a super, strong producer. A little bit of an edge but very stable.

Thanks gsdelsa! That is good to know. The sire side of his pedigree is what I know the least about. Odin is VERY stable but does in some ways lack that "edge" Although he has shown a bit of aggression a few times. His attitude in IPO was "this is a super cool game" for the most part. But he did show some more aggression the couple of times we got him on a suit. He also showed a good deal of aggression once when a friend I hadn't seen in a while came over walked in the door and gave me a big hug. He didn't think that was cool at all, I'm sure if I hadn't intervened he would have bit her, he calmed down immediately after and went back to being a "dude." He is generally a "lover not a fighter" and I would say that in confrontational situations he is not overly confident or comfortable. In comparison to my other dog with lots of "active aggression" who is always kind of looking for a fight and thoroughly enjoys it when he finds one.

Linebred on a very nice dog, Uwe... very much like Uwe's father Drigon too.

I am thinking that uwe is where some of his biddability and eagerness to please comes from? He also has excellent endurance and could trot ALL DAY! I wonder if the herding lineage plays a role in that?

Wow, I really like his mother's pedigree. Some old blood really close up. Nice.

Not as thrilled with the sire's pedigree, but those are personal likes and dislikes.

You don't see many dogs linebred on Uwe around anymore.

What kind of dislikes?

Part of the reason I'm curious is because if there was one thing I could improve in Odin it would be for him to be a little bit "stronger." I don't know if that's just him or if it possibly comes from somewhere in his lineage. He is by no stretch a weak dog, but he I guess could use a little more cockiness
