Either next season or the season after, I will be looking to line my BMH bitch and am therefore beginning the search for a suitable stud dog.
I think it is important to start looking now so that I can spend time arranging to see prospective dogs and others can see the bitch.
My reasons for looking to breed from her are that I want to keep a line going from her as she has great temperament, a quick learner and is good at tracking which personally I feel are good traits.
The breeding is something that will be thoroughly researched as I want to help better the breed for it's working capabilities.
Any prospective sire will need to be KC registered, working, hip scored and free from known health risks associated with the breed such as fits and heart problems. I am also aware that some lines have aggression issues and therefore would not like to breed from dogs with this problem.
For those who may be interested, my bitches details can be found at the following link:
I am currently arranging a hip scoring for my bitch so will be able to provide the details for this to owners of prospective sires shortly. For reference, the sire and dam scored 9 and 8 respectively.
Test matings can be tried on the following kennel club link by putting your dogs details in as well as my bitches ( zerno brazen).
My bitch is from a litter from Mark and Alison Montgomery so for obvious reasons I will not be looking to use a dog from either of the same parents.
If you have a dog which you think may be a suitable mate please send me a pm with details.
