It is all about eyes – mirror of the soul and breed. Eyes are icing of the cake with pedigree dogs

In my studies in the wonderful world of pedigree dogs has one issue raised above all.  After owning and living decades with large variety of different breeds  eyes has become the detail of the details. It is all about eyes. Eyes are the thing that really makes the breed. Shape, pigmentation, size and the look make the picture perfect. To really understand the breed you must understand the look. Eyes are the most important part of the expression.  For me the look that dog gives is the most important detail of them all. I can live with many faults – but I tell you I can ´t  live with terrible eyes or with fault expression. Eyes are the mirror of the soul in dogs as well. If you understand the breed enough.  You can  read the eyes of your dogs. You can...

It is not possible to make compromises in breeding with dog nerve sturcture

It is not possible to make compromises in breeding with dog nerve sturcture

It is possible to make quite a few compromises in breeding. It is actually a must to do compromises every now and then. However I would say there is one thing a clever breeder can´t  make a compromises with. That is not temperament as a whole but with nerve structure. One compromise can strike back so many generations after. I feel too many breeder´s and too many breeds have done terrible mistakes by doing compromises with the nerves. There are too many nervous breeds and too many nervous individuals because someone did not care? Why someone makes the compromise with nerves? Why should you never play with nerves of the dogs in your breeding? I feel like as planning my breeding there is four major issues to be counted in breeding. They are 1) overall physical...

Coco the Frenchie is a different kind of youngster

It is surprising how very different all the breeds are from each others. I have had many different kind of breeds over the decades. Now I can see that our French bulldog Coco is again very different kind of character than any puppy we had before. For sure you can see that she is a “bulldog” type of athlete powerful dog that wanna use her jaws a lot. She also like to read books, newspapers and letters.

Heureka – wait that special feeling before mating the bitch

Heureka – wait that special feeling before mating the bitch

Now we really go to the deepest of the deep in high quality dog breeding. I can´t tell you what is that feeling when your intuition tells you THIS IS IT. It is really HEUREKA kind of feeling. It is magical, it is better than sex, it really is a special kind of feeling. True breeder should know that feeling. If not there is long way to go to the world of intuition, imagination and studies. Why is heureka so important. What it takes to make that special discovery to find out the perfect combination, perfect mating? First of all I would say. Do not mate the bitch at all if you really do not get that special feeling. At least my biggest mistakes have been litters where I do mate a bitch without getting that magical heureka. Those litters are done by putting together...
