I had the misfortune of owning a show/working mix who got the worst from both lines.
I imagine the right person can do it and come up with the right results but I am not seeing anything that exists in the showlines (that I have seen/met) that would actually improve the working lines.
I know Molly at Eichenluft does these combinations but I have only met one of her dogs who was a very nice 100% WL dog.

I would wait to assess a young dog until they are around 3...especially if the dog has DDR bloodlines. What you see at 1 yr 2 yrs isn't necessarily what you'll get at 3. Czech and DDR are not one in the same, and shouldn't be placed in the same 'group'
Kind of like saying Am SL & WG SL's are alike.
I really don't get the reason to blend DDR/WGSL's but I guess the proof will be told eventually, though waiting would be tough, especially if you want to repeat a breeding.

Those dogs are very gorgeous, though my favorite look is the typical deep red and black saddleback. Just, I am with the working line people in agreeing that the show line breeders are NOT focusing on working ability or temperament enough at all. Most top show lines that are 'schh3' have barely passed the tests, or have faked it. Not to mention most of the top seiger dogs have absolutely no personality. Lol. I think working lines are SO much more fun but I just love the appearance of the sieger lines (minus the roach back) that I dream of a perfect combination :P

this is not a formula "
All I mean by the appearance is the black and red. I love it I don't like the show lines who have no schutzhund abilities, but there are a lot of lines that excel in sieger as well as work, though I agree not typically as well as a strict working line. I think that a dog with a very strong working instinct (for a sieger line), who also has great conformation, bred to a nicely built DDR or larger czech would make an excellent dog, but I suppose it depends.
