The Process To Select and Develop Top Working Dogs
4. Entry Into The Breeding Program
We believe that an effective way to select the kind of temperament and structure we value is to test the dogs in the sport of Schutzhund
The training and selecting breeding of dogs possessing those traits also benefit:
- Police and Military
- Service Organizations
- Search and Rescue
