Pedigree Database

Hello, I’m wondering if anyone knows of any DDR breeders breeding dogs with breed worthy working titles, correct temperament and structure?

Working titles such as; IGP (Schutzhund - BH or higher), WDA, PSA, Higher than a basic Herding instinct title, high level Tracking, Police dogs or Single purpose narcotics dogs ect.)

Not looking for UKC / IABCA / SV conformation only, weight pull, dock diving, barn hunt, trick dog titles, CGCs or agility.

Looking for puppies or adults:
- not from overused lines
- not heavy linebred
- not overly saturated with Sven - once is fine but prefer not more and really none at all.
- Happy to Import
- Happy to buy USA
- breed worthy titled parents
- hip and elbow passing parents
- DM clear

There are only several US breeders on that entire list that I would consider, if I were you. A couple of them will require you to multi-title your dog before they release rights.

Many of those US breeders are breeding generational untitled on top of untitled dogs. But you know that. So, if what you are looking for is a real working kennel, please see below. Imo

Granfental/Ludwigseck are certainly still producing wonderful dogs, however, it's very hard to get a flight to the US right now. (presuming you're in the US)  I have a couple of young dogs here now from this kennel and will go back next year (hopefully this pandemic will be under control) for another.

Welwitz is still breeding.

If you're on FB, do a search. Most have FB pages.

If you're familiar with working-dog.eu, most working kennels are there and advertise there as well.

When reading your posts some questions come to mind...

1) How many DDR dogs are you looking for?

2) What are your intentions for those dogs? A Good breeder has just as much right to be concerned about what is going to happen to their dogs and how they are going to be treated.

3) You are asking for sport dogs with titles and also Police or other actual working dogs such as the Amtrak DDR dogs I saw in Chicago who are NOT titled .... Are you looking for sport dogs or dogs that can work? Most people in the DDR community know that that DDR's are slower to mature and don't always make good sport dogs. You don't want  an AKC CGC but a BH  companion dog title is ok? By the way the dog makes the title the Title doesn't make the dog as some overseas "titles" are like magic ...Voila and there 's a title.

4) You need to be looking at something other than DDR's if you want dogs from lines that are not linebred or "overused" as you put it. I refer you back to question #2

5) What about Tino? Or Lord? or Neumans Jim ? or the other DDR greats that show up multiple times in most modern DDR pedigrees.

6) Where are you located? Being close to a breeder would make it easier to visit and show you are very serious about making an informed "hands on" decision.

7) You have a pretty good list going already with a wide availability, so why do you need more? I refer you to #1

There are some good breeders on your list that I would buy from and some I would not, and some like some new young breeders (and the people they associate with) who act like they know more then lifetime german breeders that I wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole.

But just looking at a website or FB post doesnt mean that you will know that much about their operation or how their dogs are worked ... if at all. I refer you to #6

One has to also be careful of some of the young new DDR breeders  that are coming online who think that they improve their stature in the DDR community by setting people up  to look bad so they can look better. They forget that an astute breeder  breeds for their clients not to make another breeder look better or worse.

I am aware of some other stateside and overseas DDR breeders not on your list but I'd like to see some answers to the above questions first before disclosing them.

I would only consider buying from a handful of the breeders that you mentioned, its ver very hard finding dogs that are not from overused lines nearly all the current DDR are from line 13 and are heavily linebred. In my 4 years of research i have only found 4 dogs that suit my quality standard that are not heavily linebred.

Does it have to be pure DDR vom Parchimerland just had a litter of 50% ddr and 50% west working lines

Hello, I appreciate the detailed response and think it is best to continue the conversation privately, please check your Indox on Pedigree database as I have sent a rather lengthy and detailed response to each question.

Thank you again.

Do you have a husband? How long did that take? Who decides what "worthy" is? Since you have discovered all these breeders and you haven't purchased THE dog, does that mean they have no "worthy" dogs?"" I own Eickental and I have to disagree with some of your comments ... You have never talked with me or been to my place and seen my operation or the work my DDR's do. I did however remove you from some of my facebook groups because of your vicious attacks on other breeders who apparently weren't up to your standards. I believe this "when a person stands on a ladder in the middle of the room and tries to impress you with their knowledge at the expense of others, you have met the narcissist." You copied and posted this in a number of Facebook groups and here on PDB. There are some very good and knowledgeable breeders that apparently weren't up to your qualifications in your list. Perhaps there is another agenda that you have besides looking for a dog. We meet people everyday whom we may not agree with, but we don't have to chastise them for their "limited knowledge". This world is a small place and it needs kind people to make it better
