As some of you know, I've been looking for a "breed". Beauceron's are at the top of my list with Rottweilers a close second. (There's a great breeder in my area, well known, great reputation) But, my heart I think is set on a Beauceron, after only first hearing about them a few months ago. Now don't worry, I'm not about to rush into anything Here is the link to the breeders site: http://www.geocities.com/beauceron_1999/ I spoke to him for at least 45 minutes, about the temperment of his dogs, what he does with them, how long he's been with the breed, lines etc. To me, it sounds good so far. He's been around the breed for about 12 years. He's actively involved in Ring Sport as well as Schutz. All of his breeding stock comes straight from France, and he's making a trip in October to Spain to get a few more dogs from lines that he likes. He does all the testing, and the certificates are available on his site. So for all you cynics out there (joking ) Tell me what's wrong, or what seems fishy about it, if anything. He also made a comment about Roxy's "issues", and stated it sounds like a dog that has the perfect temperment for Schutz! Believe me, I was surprised! While discussing the fact that schutz is something in years, that I'd like to do most likely just for the heck of it, but perhaps in competition, and how Roxy would most likely not pass a test to even train for Schutz. He mentioned that schutz is all about control. Now saying that, it's much easier to work on obedience and control than to teach a dog aggressiveness. (When it comes to the PP part) He personally prefers a dog with that "edge", which is what Esther commonly refers Roxy's bouts too. He also went into detail about how training a Beauce is much different than any other dog. And how they often, will shut down, or refuse to work when leash corrections, or too harsh an atmosphere is set. I know! Sounds just like Roxy doesn't it! So, not only did a get a lot of info about the breed today, but found out that maybe, just maybe, Roxy isn't as horrible as I've been told she is. She is fairly obedience and not outright aggressive. From him just hearing me explain our "problems", he stated it was an edge that he likes with his dogs. So let me know what you think honestly. That's the whole point of me putting it out there. He only has about 2 litters a year as well, I don't think he stated that on the website.
