the kennel and breeding
are born in and live in my own house.
It is a small scale breeding program so far, until now it has
been 6 litters in 7years.
my girls to be at least 3 years old before breeding
them. Partly because they are not in my opinion fully mature in
both body and mind until that age, but also because the 3+ year
interval between generations helps me evaluate
the health and longevity in the generations before them.
So far it
has not been possible for me to breed every year, I do not have
that many dogs. Sometimes I just have to wait until the right
girl comes of age.
of the best intentions, years of planning a certain combination,
something always seem to happen to change plans at the very last
Sometimes those well thought out reasons for a combination can't
be realised for some practical reason like you did not get the
male to Sweden in time for breeding or something along those lines.
Well, Francie Stull always said the fate of the breed has been
in the paws of the dogs themselves, she did not have so much to
do with it as you might think ;-)
to breed a dog at all has to come from somewhere and health
and temperament are the 2 top priorities on my list for
That comes before conformation and any other faults or virtues
the dog may have.
