Arrow has already been approved pending health testing. Arrow's hip results came back over the weekend. He is a BVA 6. So I will move forward and do his DM test (which doesn't run in the lines, but I will do it anyway) as well as the DNA Parentage test. I did spend four days with her dogs and honestly, I don't think you could ask for anything more. These dogs are absolutely wonderful. My opinion of course, but I think Teresa agrees, too.Dani wrote:You know what would be really nice? If we could find a few breeders of some of the various breeds, like the hedlund huskies, shilo shepherds, and whatever other out cross breeds that are on the table. Then ask them to participate in a live/recorded video study of their dogs in their home, kennels or play yard.
It would be very nice to not only meet these breeds but more so, to be able to monitor them in a more day to day scenario. Like Hawthorn does with their puppy live cams. -- Say you have a kennel yard and a play yard, you have.. 10+ dogs. Wire up a few cameras at least one on the kennels and another on the play yard. It will give viewers a REAL look into that breeds behaviors. How they really interact day to day, and a look at many of them at once. Sort of like a breed assessment project. You really just never know a breed until you deal with them day to day. Even then, you need to deal with a few of them, as we know, dogs are individuals and one might have such a wonderful personality, were as the next is a fence fighter. ...Take Siberian Huskies for example, I had a few bloodlines that I had to TRIPLE fence to keep them from ripping their neighbor through the kennel fence during feeding time. Yet on the flip side of the coin, one of my other bloodlines could be trusted ALONE with cats and off leash recall.
If this WAS a possibility, I'd want to review a few different breeders kennels, of various bloodlines of that breed. It would help give more predictability to what exactly is being put into the dogs we already have. I really don't know if this could even be done, It's just one idea.
You bet we're keeping one!AZDehlin wrote: Perfect, a working dog that is also a good companion at the end of the day. Your keeping one of the Freyja x Arrow pups right?
