Hi All :)
so I have a question......... what defines a czech pedigree?
It seems right now where I live..the Czech pedigree is very in demand.
Although I am by NO way an expert about anything... I am obsessive compulsive and do work from home......
so I spend a fair amount of time looking at pedigrees.... so many people are saying
"WOW!!! this is fantastic Czech pedigree"
but when I look.... at least half the pedigree is something else..... to me (again not expert) mostly German working...
am I being nit-picky??? what defines Czech? is it being imported from there..regardless of pedigree?
just want to know other peoples thoughts....or expectaions....
thank you in advance

When I make reference to a pedigree by saying its a nice Czech pedigree, I mean the dogs in the pedigree are of Czech descendants. Just because a dog is exported or in Czech does not automatically mean the dogs in the pedigree are of Czech Descendants. I have noticed that many will label a pedigree of a certain type by the majority of the dogs in the pedigree, they fail to realize that if there is even one of another type, that dilutes the pedigree from being pure.

And guess what, the ASL's and GSL's all came from the same GSD's too. Behold the power of selective breeding.

power to selective breeding not bad breeding

Blitzen that is exactly what I mean. The power of selective breeding can actually control the final product and can totally change what it was in the beginning. The ASL dog is considered a line of its own now. To other lines, ASL is purified and not even considered where it originated from. The same is capable of being done with the other lines such as Czech, Belgium or WG etc all because the breedings are continually done in that country. Any line can be considered purified with selective breeding just as the American's have done with the ASL dogs.

We sure can't blame the dogs, can we?

the question re czech is how much milk do you add to coffee and still call it coffee.
i see mainly czech line breeders adding west dogs to czech lines and not czech lines added to west dogs.
