Opinion on Pedigree
I'm attaching the link to my female's pedigree.
Misha is almost 11 months and trying to make decisions on what activities I want her to pursue.
Appreciate any constructive input or thoughts.

Looks like an all West German show pedigree to me. I think it really depends on your dog's drives and motivation to work that will determine what activities you can pursue. Does the breeder you got your dog from do any sport or work with the dogs? Do they have any recommendations? What do you want to do?

At 11 months she is really old enough to evaluate on her own merits. The pedigree helps with figuring out what litter you might want a puppy from.....

Thanks for the replies.

Perhaps I should have asked also what would one expect her "strengths" to be looking at her bloodline.

Honestly if she never does anything other than remain the lovely little family member she's become I'm good with that.
But I do wanna have her involved in some activities and as her owner I'm sure I'll push her towards her strengths.

Have her entered as a puppy for an AKC show coming up but honestly since she's not been bred for what the "standard" is I doubt there's a future in it. Doing it just for the fun of it.

you have the pup right in front of you. you should be able to tell US what her strengths are. even within a litter each pup has different strengths and weaknesses. what she can do will depend on her drives and nerves. agility or dock diving would be something fun to try. not too pressure packed and just something fun to do with your dog.
