"J" Litter (After x Raika)

[See Gallery | Jump to Pedigree]

The After x Raika litter of seven girls and three boys arrived March 5, 2009.

"Raika" - Sprite's Eureka SchH2 CDX TD - Raika has excellent energy and drives for all three phases of schutzhund. In tracking she is hard working and in high drive. In obedience she shows her dam's influence (Soja) in the accurate, flashy picture she presents. And in protection she shows hard, full mouth grips, intense eye contact with the helper, balanced drives (prey and active aggression), natural love of fight, and superb self-confidence. Raika brings these qualities and more to her current training in SAR.

"After" - After des Loups Mutins FR3 - After is a handsome, athletic, highly successful French ring dog, with pronounced self-confidence and energy, love of play, and exceptional jumping ability. After is social and stable, with a big, calm bite and a pedigree of high caliber working dogs.

Ideally, this litter will retain the willingness to please, boldness, focus, friendliness, structure, intelligence and extreme working drives of the dam. The sire, After, was chosen for powerful, mouth-stuffing grips, core confidence, trainability, drive, utter stability, physical correctness and working pedigree.

There should be a range of temperaments in this litter, but I expect all of the puppies to possess confident temperaments, high trainability with good drives, love of work, athleticism, and intelligence. The best Schutzhund puppies will also possess bite quality, intensity, naturally calm and focused tracking, dominant temperaments, and high fighting drive. I expect almost all of these puppies to excel in competition agility and many to excel in the protection sports and SAR careers.
