|Smithie86||That is why I noted medium to high medium size. You do not want a big dog, per se.|

You can train to enhance drives, and you can condition to improve athleticism, but the dog's underlying structure is what it is.

|Smithie86||Agree with Christine. You want an agile, quick dog. Medium to high medium size (80 lbs or so for males).|

Which of the two would be more important, if one would have to be picked over the other? (If she says one bitch has higher prey drive, but the other is more athletic)? Drive?

I'm a quiet fan of the G-litter Bady-Ron.
However, for French Ring, you need very high levels of athleticism and very high prey drive. I would ask the breeder which dam has higher prey drive and who is faster and more athletic.

Calling the Working Enthusiast Pedigree Experts
So I did end up caving and asking my breeder if she'd be able to get me a puppy suited for French Ring.
She told me what type of dog I would need, regarding drives (she said social with very high prey) and some possible matings that would give me a FR puppy.
Here's the mating outcome I did on the first pairing she mentioned:
Line-breeding for the progency of ARES Amicus Nobilis and VELMI DOBRY Haki Librova Dvora
Here's the second:
Line-breeding for the progency of ARES Amicus Nobilis and Geena Bady-Ron
What do you think about these pedigrees, and do you think I could get a puppy suitable for FR from one of these pairings? If yes, which would give me more success (if one would be better than the other).
Any other input would be appreciated!
