Honestly this concerns me about the breeder. You say they are experienced, but what does that mean? Has this dog been trained and worked and tested? Maybe I need to use my line...I've brushed my teeth for 26 years but it doesn't make me a dentist.You are all right, I don't want a pup with temperament problems. I don't think the sire has issues though, he just never sired before and didn't know what to do for the sound of the breeder and the other breeder that recommended him in the first place. This was his first go. I do know that he was put with another female to breed that is registered and she was very aggressive and beat him up pretty good. She wasn't having any part of him and he didn't take charge. That is why this breeder had to get help from the other breeder. The sire had to have help I guess.
He is a very nice dog from what I have seen and when I have been around him. He is very good with my two kids.
To go off in another direction here, I thought the SV had revised the standard to allow registration of long coated dogs as long as they have an undercoat.sounds like they....
...bred dogs they can't register
...bred a dog against standard (coated)
You're right, the SV does allow breeding longcoats but only to other longcoats.To go off in another direction here, I thought the SV had revised the standard to allow registration of long coated dogs as long as they have an undercoat.
