No, I'm looking for SL at the moment. Based off Dam's side, I'm assuming the lack of titles, convinces you this line is not impressive for work? Just curious as I'm still learning pedigree's.
I am looking to potential work the dog, but lots of obedience and training/trainability. I particularly want high drive for the work
You are totally contradicting yourself.
The pedigree is showline - so you get an oddity - a black showline.....somehow the black recessive seems to have been captured from 10-12 generations back - if the pedigrees are to be believed....
So - you are getting what you say you want.
But what you say you want to do??? While it is a lottery ticket - I would say - No - you are NOT getting trainability, high drive........or ability to accept any stress in training - not in obedience, not in protection....typical showlines will show some drive, but it cannot be molded, structured, shaped or corrected without the dog just giving up....I have not personally seen any individuals from this Russian kennel....but have seen many showline dogs....a few with alot of aggression who can do bitework, but out of anger and not particularly correct or controllable.
You will be getting a pretty coated pet IMO...not a dog to do any sport or activity with.
sorry - just my experience watching many many many showlines in both schutzhund and in AKC obedience/rally
