I know that this topic has been addressed before. Can somebody please tell me if these dogs are from showline or working lines? I am not understanding how to tell by the pedigree. Breeder is telling me the list is a mix of both.
Thank you in advance.

A quick way to tell if a litter is show or working is to look at the coat color and body type. Most show dogs will have the saddle backs all throughout the pedigree whereas working will have all standard colors, but most often you'll see them as a dark black sable. I'm attaching photos of a show dog, a working dog, and a puppy from mixed show/work lines. I should say that there are always variations, but this is a general guide.

Greta- Majority German showline. Her sire's side is German showline while her dam's side is half German showline and half German working lines.

The names you listed:
Gigante's Century Reactor: Working

Royal K9s Harper Vom Schlossfelsen: 50% Show/Work

Greta von der stadtrand: 75% Show/25% Work

Norbo von der alte baum: 100% Work

Royal K9's Prada vom Schlossfelsen: 100% Show

I only looked at the pedigrees for the show to work ratio. Not for quality. I did see Paska Salztalblick. That's a nice dog.

Reliya wrote that most often you'll see them (Working lines) as a dark black sable. In my experience, WL are mainly sables (normal/lighter from Germany, Belgium, Scandanavian countries etc) and blacks ......the dark sable dogs are also working lines (Czech and Slovak) but are not the prediminant color... just all part of the sable and black working line colors..

German DDR breeding but AKC registered Gigante's Century Reactor not to be confused with the Gigante dogs from the British kennel of that same name, I guess !

You sure you haven’t been told before what these lines are ?
