Well, if no one wants to add to the list, then I'll just assume I have it all listed, or people just don't want to provide any more. That's fine. First take the route of least resistance then move towards more of real-time experience.
This is the very first thing I was told 18 years ago when I started researching what it took to get a GOOD german shepherd that might be breeding potential.
"What is WRONG with your dog?" Yes, you need to know your dog's good traits but until you can objectively sit down with someone and explain every fault that your dog has, without being offended, you aren't remotely ready to breed. Let alone ready to compete.
People will talk about your dog. They will mention his good points but they will even more loudly point out his flaws. And many of them won't be nearly as nice as the people here have been. Often, going to a working club, they can be even more skeptical of "unusually colored dogs" mostly because they come into it with the idea that the dog was likely not from a responsible breeder. And, again, they can be mean about it.
That thick skin is the first, and most important, step in becoming a breeder. Second is the ability to separate your feelings and love from your dog from your breeding. Third is an objective outlook at the idea of breeding and where a particular dog falls in the spectrum.
Well the thing is that I never said I will not admit to her "faults", but I won't accept them when they are baseless and unreasoned, without evidence to prove it 100% as we have concluded, not having a DNA testing we don't know, and for the matter of breeding qualities, I haven't even begun to try and title her, I'm here to ask how to do it, so obviously without testing her I don't know her faults to begin with, I can only note the ones I personally noticed, which is pretty few, I don't consider myself a great trainer, so who am I to judge really? I'm here to find qualified judgement, not baseless skepticism presuming she is NOT breeding worthy simply because of her coat/mixed and me not being versed in breeding/titling; it doesn't mean she doesn't have the potential, I just need to go and get the testing and trials done, why comment on me not being knowledgeable breeding and attributed to her not being breeding worthy? There's just no relevance between the two factors. It just comes down to ME having to figure out how to see if she can get titled that comes down to proving what she is actually worth.
I just wanted to point out, that Schutzhund/IPO titles ARE Minimum requirements. Schutzhund was designed as a Breed Test, meaning that only the dogs that earned a minimum of SchH I would be considered breedworthy. This is still a requirement in the SV. That is why so many of the pedigrees of German Showlines and Working lines have nothing BUT SchH titled dogs in their pedigree - without titling, the dogs did not qualify for breeding, and their offspring would not be allowed to be registered.
So if someone is serious about breeding, their goal should be to title their dogs first. By going through the process, you learn about drives and temperament, and that is how you gain an insight into understanding what goes into breeding a good dog, as Cliff pointed out. It is not the title in and of itself that makes a dog breedworthy (even a weak dog can get a title with good training - doesn't make the dog any more suited for breeding post-title than pre-title), but the process of uncovering the dog's strengths and weakness through the training and trialing process is what the title reveals to the person doing the titling - so sending dogs away to be titled, is not an effective way to build credibility as a breeder.
isn't a minimum requirement.
If you NEED a list of things to determine if your dog is breedworthy, then YOU probably are not ready to be breeding. And I don't mean that flippantly. I mean that breeding is more art than science based on knowledge and experience.....once you acquire knowledge THROUGH experience you will begin to understand what you don't understand and can't be explained in words.
Get out there and do some high level training and experience some quality breeding dogs....then you have a start of at least comparing your dog to something tangible.
So, logically, one cannot learn to get ready to be a breeder? Sorry, logic falls short here. Isn't what I'm asking exactly to do with just trying to compile a list (like a shopping list), then going out in the real world to EXPERIENCE and learn in real-time. If you read the whole OP, I specifically stated this:
I would like to know immediate actions I can take and straight forward steps to take rather than discussing the nature of breeding like choosing complimentary mates and temperament, feel free to bring it up if need be, but I mainly want to locate the/a source(s) where I can go and gain all the necessary information by going to the access point so to speak.
I am good at learning as I observe in real-time, but of course first gather all the necessary concepts and groundwork of understanding, so if I can go to a club or event that would explain all this it would be the most effective way I think.
