Example, police departments that need a trained dog now or very near future and send handler to the kennel for training with the dog so they learn to be a team. The dog is already trained and ready for certification with the handler as a team. A kennel like this has to have healthy, good quality dogs, great training, and stand behind both the dogs and training, or it will very quickly go out of business from both lack of purchases (word of mouth among departments) and lawsuits when things go wrong on the street.
Some of these kennels get their dogs sport titled, some only law enforcement certifications, etc.
I'd rather a police K9 have more law enforcement K9-type training and certifications than a sport title(s) in place of even one of the certifications. Work ability and execution is far more important than bragging rights of titles/pedigrees in serious situations.

24.11.2013 , I realized that she had a litter every 6 months, bred to the same male Kalle vom Hammelsbacher Hof.
Not much diversity in that kennel.

Today, there are few dogs that have real aggression. That his that when one comes along that "wows" the judges they push him in the ratings. Even WL are a shade of what they were.

But most people don´t see the problem....telling me we have a huge population....yes sure....
Popular sire syndrom destroys too much and I don´t get the breeders or the breeding club, who allows this....
Studs should be limited for every male.

It's hard to get to know any dogs other than what is in your kennel or club.
My IGP 3 female? 4 times high protection. (4 trials. 1 IGP 1, 1 IGP 2, 2 IGP 3) 2 times on home field. 2 times on strange field.
Solid as a rock nerves.
Great, slow methodical tracker.
Happy obedience. High ball drive.
High food drive. Will take your fingers with the food if you don't watch it.
Calm in crate or kennel. Good off switch. No destructive behavior. No allergies. low to mid 70 pounds.
What would I fix? For sport or companion probably nothing.
For PP, K9, MWD?
Aggression. She has to be pushed pretty hard to become pissed or want to bite for real. She would not bite a neutral person.
Is that a problem? I don't know. I don't do PP, K9 or any of that. I do sport.
But I also know that is something that should be there. Maybe it is but I just didn't bring it out. Maybe not.
But if I put out a post looking for a stud with aggression closer to the surface? How many thousands of replies will I get that will be far worse than the stud I have in my kennel?
I could spend the rest of my life checking out weak nerved poorly bred dogs.
