About the MH as an breeding evaluation tool
Posted by Scandinavianbull on September 10, 2013, 0:51:30
What do you gues and gals think about it? Here in Scandinavia Ive seen working bulldog breeders, along with malanois and the other sheperds doing mh on all their dogs, posting the results and often videos off all their dogs for all to see. |
Do you feel one abtains enough information about a breeding knowing the mh scores off the parents, earliger breedings, siblings and so on, or is it merely a lesser point in what has to be a bigger picture?
( pardon my sad english ability)

I myself love the ab, but i HAVE to admit ive seen more impressive malanois than ab,s on the mh. |
Maby every serius ab breeder should implement these as a tool to strenghten the breed?

Your English is very good! Maybe people should want an AB to act like an AB and not a Malinois? |
For instance, I would make sure every AB could catch and hold a wild hog, and then see if it could do bitework. If it could not do the catching, I would personally not care if it did the bitework, because to me it's not a bulldog. I would not breed it. I would expect it to do basic protection dog tests if it were proven to be a bulldog by catch work, but not necessarily something more geared for the traits of herders.

So you are saying you would not breed a dog unless it has been tested for what it has been bred for?|
