czech bloodlines

i know NOTHING about types of gsds, so i probably sound pretty dumb [forgive me ahead of time].

our dog trainer is a gsd specialist & when he looked at her said she is definitely czech. i was just wondering what the difference is between a czech gsd & a german gsd, & so on & so forth.

thanks to anyone who takes time out to explain!

Re: czech bloodlines

Just from looking, huh? I have a Czech dog myself, and boy have I been wrong in the past guessing on sight if a dog is Czech or not. Czech dogs really don't all look cookie-cutter. Some Czech dogs are small, zippy, wiry, foxy-faced little speedsters.. others are heavy-boned lummoxes with heads like bears. In my opinion, some dogs to me 'look Czech' when they have a distinctly wolfy, foreign, exotic look to them-- slightly oblique set to the eyes, furred inner surface of ears, sable coat. But.. it's not so cut-and-dry. Here's my fellow. He's just 1o months in these pics, but his eyes are light, slightly obliquely set, and he's the bulldozer-build type but going through a growth spurt:

Re: czech bloodlines

well, i guess more than looking at her. he spent a few minutes looking at her coat, how she stands, ears, teeth, eyes, nose, her build & her temperment. & then he was like "where did you get her?" & we told him that we saw an ad in the paper for $200, for gsd puppies. & let him know we knew nothing about her parents or bloodlines, & he said she definitely had czech in her..

this is my baby..

Re: czech bloodlines

Here is a picture of the Czech dog I had when he was 10 months old.
Personally I think the person you are refering to is full of IT. With the working lines you cannot tell just by looking if a dog is Czech or not. You can say the LOOK Czech but that isn't the same as saying they ARE.

Re: czech bloodlines

I don't know how he could tell - or what he was basing it on....actually, black and tan is NOT "typical" of czech lines....dark sable is more common, and even darker sables seem to be more typical of czech dogs...from the photos, it is just not easy to say WHAT lines she is!!

Re: czech bloodlines

If you post or PM the name of the kennel you are talking about in the other post I can tell you what type of bloodlines she has.

Re: czech bloodlines

All I could find on there is: "Only stud dogs from top German blood lines are used in our breeding program." (Looks like german SHOW lines.)

"Our select brood bitches are chosen from top American and German blood lines"

Really can't tell for sure exactly WHAT is going on with their breeding program since they don't post pedigrees.

Re: czech bloodlines

It looks like a puppy mill to me 42 females?

Re: czech bloodlines

I have been to Sukee in Maine. Nat, I'm in full agreement.. can't go into it on the board due to board rules. I do know people who have gotten quality dogs from them, however.
