Some of these pups are nervous wrecks, partially because of genetics partially because the owners allow it and encourage or baby it.
Typically some dogs that SHOULD be bred do not have sport titles such as schutzhund, because they are certified WORKING dogs such as police and SAR.

The titles are also one part of the picture as you can have a titled dog NOT worth breeding. It is obviously a good goal but not the whole picture.

I think the most important thing is the person doing the actual breeding has the background, dog experience, and knowledge of genetics to know what they are doing, with or without titles. But that PERSON should have enough experience in work or sport venues to know what they are looking at when they select a dog.

I have read the entire thread. And I'm in Canada - not the states which is what I meant, it may be different up here.

My post was still replying to the first couple posts from OP.

Well, considering the OP has already chosen not to breed her dog, at least not any time soon, continuing to pound on her doesn't really do much good. I think that letting people know the various reasons for not breeding is beneficial, but when it goes on and on, even after the person has come back and thanked us for the info and said she has re-thought it, instead of just getting mad and stamping off, well there comes a time when it becomes counter-productive. They will tend to look at us as over-zealous fanatics and then do what they initially intended.

Are you taking your diesel boat 200miles off shore and back multiple times a week?


Oh and lets take a look at driving times for the upcoming shows:
OG Carolina - 8.5hrs each way
OG Landheim - 4.5hrs each way
Sieger Show in WI - 6.5hrs each way

So that's how I hemorrhage money on gas

Kaity , as a fellow Canadian , there is no difference "up here" .

In the meantime Bethany start asking lots of questions about different lines. Look to the best of all lines . Go window shopping but leave your credit card at home if you know what I mean.
Go through the pedigree data base classifieds and start picking out what you like - price no problem since you are not buying, yet , see if there is a pattern . Then we can discuss and you'll learn lots.

Why does the story keep changing??? Police K-9, then Police K-9 still in-service but owned by the Officer, then retired Police K-9 but "volunteers"????

I work for a large department and there is noooooo way that one of our dogs would or could be owned by anyone besides the city. When that dog is retired the handler is given the option of keeping the retired dog as a pet (for free).

As far as the department using the dog part-time...or whatever....that would not fly either. The only possible way I could see that happening would be for simple tracking of non-violent offenders (missing persons, etc..), or artical searches. Even then would still be hard to believe. If true, must be a small, no-bite department, because our dogs do a lot of biting and I would hate to have that liability on my shoulders.....

I don't even know why we are still talking about this?? Obviously she didn't know what she was talking about from the start. Why keep analyzing it?

Excellent point Sue and a good reason to close down this thread.
