These dogs need a strong handler for the most part, your typical SD handler (disabled person) is not a good match IMO for these working dogs.



I'm not "tugging" you anywhere, I don't know what bloodlines you are breeding now, since you won't tell us. I started this thread so that you could see how other people are doing it.


My next breeding is under serious consideration with this dog. The lines from the stud, is on the website. I have not “Done” what I aim to accomplish YET. The lines are not as important as the dogs and what they are really like is key here. If you personally meet these dogs you will understand a bit more.

I like Barbara's dogs very much, and really like her male Zamp. I wish you success in your endeavors.

What is it about this dog that you like? Especially in regard to service work?

It's not just Service work it is to better the breed on a whole in general. This stud and the dogs before him have legitimate working titles. (Easy to find in the working line but ...) Not only that, the pedigree shows great looks and structure as well. The dogs themselves are not over the top, but have great drive and solid balance that is on the upper end of the WGSL GSD. Capitalizing on the drivyer that have a consistent record in temperament and true workability while maintaining the show quality look is my priority at this time. When the drive and workability is closer to the working lines I will carefully select a working line dog bring more of the drive and stronger nerve into the line.

Zamp is a good looking dog. Do you hope to breed him to your female Pebbles?

Yes, I am strongly considering it for her next breeding. I hope to have the next generation of what I am looking for in her next breeding. Zamp is the front runner in this equation. Then it is the tedious task of finding the right combination moving forward to bring out more the desirable working traits bringing the dogs closer to the straight working line dogs while keeping that show quality look.
