Re: Tamaskan portrait (sort of)

My prices vary greatly depending on the commission but any where from $80.00-$8000.00 AUD for originals. Though I am also slowly building up a shop of giftware and there are some wolf products :) This one ....hmm after framing the price would probably be about $400.00ish. Then you would have to figu...

Re: Siberian Husky, Fit For Function or Not?

As I said Id like to see a breeding test done that tested both working ability and structure. We are unable to do Shzutzhund is not allowed in all states of Australia so our breeding animals go through breed survey. Which is jus general stuff like the sound of a gun, a crowd of people milling around...

Re: Siberian Husky, Fit For Function or Not?

If you listen to that speech. That's a good example of a balanced view. Fit for purpose but structurely correct. Able to show but if the judge puts up a dog that is unsound, it's unsound. Judges are people and while worth listening to an unbiased opinion they can still make mistakes.

Re: Siberian Husky, Fit For Function or Not?

There are some lovely dual purpose GSD breeders out there. As I said their dogs go to working homes (although in Australia the majority of armed forces/police dogs are bred by their own breeders) bit also perform well in the ring. I tend not to buy just straight WL as at least here you look at low l...

Re: Siberian Husky, Fit For Function or Not?

I am no expert on huskies but I have spent time with both the SL and WL groups. I have to say my number one opinion on discussion like this is NEITHER group is perfect. In fact in my opinion saying one group is ruining it is so counter productive. There are problems and irresponsible breeders in SL....

Re: Wolfdogs: Out of the Wild

I can see a smidge in the first two dogs. I think the second dog appears more because his behaviour is what you might expect. I don't really see any in the last dog. I agree that the first and last dog just have normal dog behaviours. The first dog I just wanted to slap the owners to be honest. They...

Re: Tamaskans are a Breed, Correct?

To take one heartbreaking example, the German Shepherd (Alsatian Shepherd) suffers from a wide range of muscle and skeletal issues that are made worse by an inability to out cross their dogs legally. As part of our governance, breeders of registered and recognized Tamaskans agree NOT to breed dogs ...

Re: What is the purpose of the Tamaskan Dog?

Actually if anything GSD breeders select for non wolfy colouring. There are dog who look like wolves but they are rare as typically people select for black and gold aswell as some sable. Even gold sables find some bias from judges. So you can select for wolf markings and temp but you need a good siz...

Re: What is the purpose of the Tamaskan Dog?

Now I dont own a Tamaskan but this is my take on the situation. This breed was created (in my opinion) to be a wolfdog without the wolf. To me this says the Tamaskan is more novice friendly than say a CzW etc. Which leads me to think companion. A working line animal is not a "pet" and takes alot of ...

Glad to see people standing up for the GSD :) I used to breed them myself. There will always be idiot breeders in any breed, that just cant be helped. On the whole I think most GSD breeders put 110% into the breed. If a problem starts to pop up they will pursue it till its solved. I worry about the ...
