I suspect that color and patterning are two different things. What Dual seems to be describing would support this. White is a color within the color palate for the breed. Breeding a solid liver to ...

Sorry, I have to break silence here...

Congratulations are in order to these folks and their dogs for their work and dedication to the versatile dog. I apologize- it appears that as much as 8% of ...

Dual,

Your insincere...most of the issues I have raised in public, you and your cohorts will agree to in private - as you ride off to your next Nationals to laud show dogs and FT dogs. Smile You are ...

Relatively few dogs and breeders truly pursue NAVHDA testing and producing the versatile dog. Of the 1300+/- GWPs whelped every year probably less than 3-5% ever get to a UT test. I doubt there are ...

KJ,
Frankly, I was never impressed with Haar Baron lines but I don't remember them being soft. There are a few that still revere this line but I think that their memories of the dogs may have gotten ...

ME,
Sorry - didn't see your post, wasn't ignoring you.

Talking versatile lines, there have been some very good bitches over the past ten years or so. I've had two, bred a couple more - the Croz ...

KJ,

I don't know what you mean by an aggessive search. If I read you right, you mean speed and distance. In my opinion, you are in the wrong breed. The DD was never intended to be a 500+ yd dog ...

If versatility is to be redefined (show, obedience, agility, etc), the breed will see no progress. Just as today, you will continue to see the vast majority seek the minimum for recognition (CH and J ...

IMO the only way real and meaningful progress will be made is for a larger group of folks to agree what the priorities are and to work together to achieve them. For that to happen everyone will have ...

I think without doubt the reason that we are discussing eventual water testing, advanced water testing, AKC versatile programs for the GWP and other versatiles is because of the success of NAVHDA and ...

With this purchase you are deciding what kind of GWP owner you will be. If a dog is a tool to you, like a hammer or a screwdriver, then simply go out and get one. After all, a hammer is a hammer. If ...

Cheerio,
IMO, your supposition is flawed. TOO MANY GWPs finish that should never be given a title. the reason that so many overstripped, soft coated dogs are labeled a CH is because a judge is pre ...
