Advertising - word of mouth and 'soft' - ie facebook.....the handler's accomplishments with the dog itself and his reputation ....placements in high level events....these are the types of things that make a dog popular as a sire....any dog - not just specifically Drago or Irmus....I have seen (in the past) where constant internet hype can make people think that a dog is a great sire when he sired nothing of note -

|lhczth||I have trained with Irmus off and on since right after Mike got him. Also been around him off the field and seen a few offspring. My club helper has worked him quite a few times. He is not suitable for my female, but he is producing some nice pups from what I have seen. I would feel comfortable recommending him for the right female depending on the goals of the breeder.|

I've always wondered why people love Irmus & Drago so much? Is it just from seeing videos? Have they seem the dog in person of the field? I'm curious as to how they are at home. Do they live in the house or are they kennel dogs? How is their on/off switch? How are they with kids and different environments? Etc.
I don't know either dog at all so I'm curious if someone knows.

|lhczth||Irmus is over 6. His d.o.b. is 7-1-2007. I actually thought he was a year older than that.|

|MrsFergione||Yeah he's only about 4 now? She he SHOULD still be available when my female is of age. I really like the combination of the two. She has Falk lines on the sire side as well|

|cliffson1||I think that Bomber and Drago are not great dogs for most WGWL females, maybe in short term but I think it helps bottleneck issues. I think they are great matches for Czech/West lines that have the nerves to handle the drives coming from sire. As for Irmus, he is not going to be around forever, but a nice genetic base,IMO.|

I want a male out of the Drago x Falk daughter or bomber daughter breedings. A nice male from those lines would be fun to compete with and make a decent stud prospect if he turns out.
Also, pie in the sky now but if my current female(line contains Brawnson, Asko, Cordon) turns out well, Ill be looking for a potential stud. It would be interesting to see what Drago would bring to the match if I decided to outcross instead of line breeding.

|MrsFergione||I've heard a lot about Drago as well. Irmus Galan Nalag is top prospect for us when my female is titled and hips certified and all that, have quite a bit of time until then which is good because I'd like to see how his progeny does over the next year and a half or so.|

|Dosher Segen||I am a new breeder and as I am now, I have spent many hours of research to breed my Czech female. I have decided on Drago just because he is everything I want my puppies to be. My female is everything I want my puppies to be. I want to breed a well balanced dog not only for sport work, but for personal protection for my family. I want a dog that can be turned on and one that can be turned off! I also see a need to bring conformation back to the sport dog. I want the 4 wheel drive and a Cadillac chaste. Am I naive to want it all?? lol|
