What Sire is Known for....

I thought we could start a thread on what sires are known for producing certain traits for the conformation ring. It would helpful to know as a lot of our posters have shown in the conformation ring for decades and can contribute good information!

So, to start: what current/recent sires are known for producing movement?

Feel free to add to the thread of sires known for fixing toplines or improving croups, etc. You get the idea!

I want to try to keep the thread positive!!

Also, I realize that someone's opinion is just what they have seen or experienced and so they will not be held to the flame for their opinion!

Ok. Bummer. Was hoping to get some input on particular bloodline strengths in the conformation ring. Maybe I should have posted in the breeding section but I figured more conformation show people would see it here.....

You mentioned movement. This guy 2004 GV CH Mar Haven's And The Beat Goes On sired Abby's sire who was/is known
for his movement. Abby moves like a Swiss clock. But there is more to a GSD than movement.

Ok...thanks!

I wonder what the "Big Gun" sires are known for like Marhavens Color Guard, Kenlyn's Aries v. Hicliff, Lenlor's Mximus, Waysides Honky tonk Man, etc.....

Interesting. Abby has all of those in back of her.
But this is not about her. It's a good ASL question.
I would be interested in more about Sundance because he is back there about 6 times.
Good luck with that in this forum.

Most unfortunately, strengths and weaknesses of AmLines are not often talked about in the open, as anything negative that is said is often constituted as "bashing", even when it's just people trying to get info on dogs.

Yeah, that's why I want to keep this thread positive with only strengths!

I noticed that Dallas seemed to pass on the ability to balance a bitch and bring her back to a nice moderate look, correct?

I'll nominate a dog considered as one of Germany's top list of producers fro the Conformation Lines. He is a recent producer and Sieger.
Zamp vom Thermodos.

*Positive contribution*
He is known to produce very good uniformity, sire type, pigmentation and strong, well shaped headpieces.
He is known to contribute in progeny very good body proportions, a high wither, straight back & good length & angle of croups. Predominately very good forehand structure, balanced brisket development and overall correct structure throughout.
His progeny generally have good temperament and nerve strength.

*Negative Contribution*
Zamp has also produced progeny that is at the top limits in size for the breed. He has also produced progeny that are at the limit of acceptable hind angulation, which has become apparent with progeny not having hocks that are firm enough.

*Zamp is a dog that I (personally) liked very much as a young dog when I saw him in Germany....I consider him a plus (+) as a dog for breeding.*
