Willy v Kuckuksland is the new Sieger.
On researching the bloodlines for the VA males I find that all of then have line(s) behind them going back on the linebreeding back to Bax v Luisenstrasse and beyond. Also, many females today carry the same lines with close inbreeding possible because every owner would l like a mating with a VA male. Is this another major problem in the making ? Where are the SV and Lothar Quoll taking the breed for the future?

It's a free world, and everybody has to decide if he wants to breed or buy a good dog or the offspring of "famous" dogs.

The SV could take steps to help breeders and to the Breed as a whole,for example, change the rules so that litters who are inbred on these lines will not be registered where it arise in the first three generations. This would be a tough one for Breeders but what is more important, The Breed or the Breeders.
It would also be helpful if Lothar Quoll would give a detailed report explaining his reasoning for continuing with the continuation of these lines and why so many of the VA dogs have the same lines. Where is the opening for new blood? The majority of the VA females carry the same lines.

Not all breeders will have access to VA males for one reason or another but they may find it easier to get a puppy at an inflated cost. Not all of the offspring from VA males are of top quality and usefulness to the breed as been seen many times before over the years. Where will they go to next when the time comes to breed on.
The VA group of males are meant to bring something more than just looking pretty through their bloodlines. With all of the VA group carrying the same bloodlines does nothing to benefit the breed. In every group of these top males there should be the introduction of new blood to the group that is compatible but different from the main lines. For example, lines carrying the benefit of sound character, workability and correct construction and demonstration of stamina. Our breed is still a Working Breed and should remain so.
There is just too much of the same blood to take the breed forward for more than just money.

I’m always hearing that the SV is the right way to go in terms of breeding and requisites for breeding.....and the VA dogs are supposed to represent the nation’s best.....yet I hear that no one is forced to breed to VA dogs....
I mean you can’t say the way is superior for the breed, but the result of national show is wink wink.....but of course I’m just an American and as one poster constantly points out, we do or understand things differently.🤗

The answers and changes rest with the SV and more so in the Judges.
