The German Shepherd has always been number one for me. Since I was 10 years old. Under the age of 14, I studied various books on breeds, training and breeding. At the age of 14, my first German Shepherd came, with whom I participated 3 times in the Youth Championships. My first breeding female was exceptional. Her name was Tequilla Anrebri and she came from a purely show line. I passed many exams with her, participated in selection races, Universalsieger Mexico and won many show titles. Her half-sister Viktoria Anrebri also helped my breeding. After Tequille I had another bitch with IPO3 – Chakira from Gargamellu (V-59 BSZS). My last puppy from schow line was the daughter of Chakira – Cher, who also passed the IPO3 exam with her owner. This made her an exceptional female, when for 4 generations in the pedigree the females of the mother had passed IPO3!Unfortunately, after about 13 years of beeding, the show line stopped fulfilling my expectations from the German Shepherd and I really started breeding the working line again from scratch.
The founder of my working breed was sable female Xenon Ja-He from the excellent breeder and trainer Peter Petruš. Another more important female was the German imported older female Cosma vom Räuberstern. My breeding females today are daughters of Xenon and Cosma. It’s Eywa and Isabella z Gargamellu.
Goals of my breeding:
I try to breed healthy and quality animals. I also look at the exterior. I especially prefer healthy movement, dark eye and pigment, smaller and strong ears and a noble head. Attentive expression, well-carried tail and longer leg bones. I try to choose couples who will sit on top of each other. I’m not interested in the results in the first place, but I try to see the character quality everywhere in breeding males.
I look a lot for healthy not only elbows and hips what is a basic duty for breeding. I also look at other healthy tests – Degenerative Meylopathy, x rays of spine, special vertebras, spondylosis. It is important for me how the dog hold his tail, because there are many details about his health.
My experience is that many, many things are unimaginably hereditary. More than I could have imagined at the beginning. I try not to connect two lines with the same problems. But breeding and genetics is an unpredictable story. After many litters, births, matings and trainings, I am still learning and looking at everything with humility, because no one will ever be perfect. Not a dog, not a breeder, not a trainer.
