Pedigree, what can I expect?

Hi everyone!

I know there are some amazing folks on here who know the ins and outs of pedigrees in a way that I will never will. I was hoping some of you might take the time to look at Daxs pedigree and let me know what behaviors I might expect or need to look out for with her bloodlines.

I dont expect to put any titles on her. We had considered doing IPO but the local club is not for me. And I dont have any other local training clubs. So she will know lots of tricks, we will do some tracking of family members and lots of camping and hiking.

Thank you for any info.

I'm definitely not a pedigree expert, but her great grand-sire Hondo vom Rex Lupus is the brother of my Halo's sire.

Thank you, this is what I was curious about. There is just no way for me to learn about all of those dogs and how they would go together.
I did see a few names that you have talked about in a few other posts I have come across.

What exactly is "thinner nerves"? More apt to break from a conflict? As opposed to just pushing through no matter what?

Just in broad, general terms, thinner nerves will show in a way you'll notice in how quick they are to react to something and how bothered they are by some things. Temperament is a kind of package deal with different amounts of things. One thing can outweigh another, and you may never see much aggression or weak nerves because you never do anything that pushes her to the points that would reveal it.

IMO, the best way to explain thinner nerves is a dog with thinner nerves will be quicker to perceive a threat but not necessarily to react. When a dog reacts to that threat is a function of its threshold.

For instance, dog #1 with thinner nerves may perceive an approaching person at night 100 feet away as a threat and will watch that person whereas dog #2 with stronger nerves may not perceive that same person as a threat until 10 feet away, if at all.

If dog #1 has high thresholds, dog #1 may wait until the threat reaches out toward him and his owner before reacting. If dog #2 has low thresholds, dog #2, although stronger nerved, may react to the approaching threat from 5 feet away.

Thin nerves is not always a bad thing. Nerves can be so strong as to stop a dog from ever perceiving a threat. That is not always a good thing.

Time itself is a very powerful component of learning. So learn to wait. Learn to forgive. Learn to backup. It's all necessary for learning.

Teach! Teach! Teach! Be fair to your dog!
