Default Breed test

Sort of a spin off from a few different threads...

If the breeders out there could design a breed test for the GSD...what would you require?

How would the test be different for SL and WL dogs?

Personally I would bring back the old SchH1 test.

For both 'strains/styles' of GSD?

Ive been told there are not two styles and that there are. The Iceberg thread made it pretty clear that they are going totally different directions.

this is going to be way out there because it is not practical to apply .

to ask dog and handler to teach some brand new sequence -- randomly chosen , randomly submitted selections handed in that day . no one can prepare for it , other than give the dog a great deal of broad education as part of daily experience.

it would reveal the dogs bidability and directability . requires bond and relationship .

makes for better quality time spent between dog and handler , better understanding of dog , potential breeder gets to evaluate intelligence and trainability . More dimensions to dog in breeding , not just selecting for colour or biting - win win.

the session would be open to view by all and any to see the work in progress . as it stands dogs are chosen by scores . this way you can start to separate trained behaviour from natural nerve and intelligence.

Swedish Mentality test !! --

Isn't this essentially Campagne?

Would that work as a test for both types?

no this would not be Campagne .

Campagne test the dog , nerves , reaction, RECOVERY

my creative test would be more engaged , active between handler and dog , being taught something on the spot

it tests the breeder as much as it tests the dog . makes for a more observant handler , better evaluation of young pups

it is an idea -- not practical

here is a large thread covering Swedish mentality test Titles vs Certifications (working type)


and Von Giliannes - Belgian breeder. spit some thoughts?
