Re: Zeus 10.02.2007 - 24.07.2012 Rest in peace my beautiful

RIP Zeus. My thoughts are with you at this sad time, no words can ease the pain you now feel, but as time goes on the lovely memories you have of Zeus will make you smile again.

Re: The "other" wolf content issue

This discussion for me throws into doubt the validity of the wolf test done. If dogs like Shar pei carry the marker how many other breeds also carry the marker and are any of those breeds used in the creation of the Tamaskan. What I am thinking is what percentage of Siberian Huskies, German Shepher...

Re: Tamaskan inquiry

Welcome, my dog Saga is very good with all sized dogs as long they are confident, if they run she just thinks its a good game of chase. She is reasonably trainable, not as good as a German shepherd I would say she is similar to my terrier or a bit easier.

Re: BREEDER REVIEWS

I would also think that all dogs before this wold not get to give a review... that it will only be any litter born after this takes effect? I am on the fence with that seeing as the past reputation of a breeder has a direct influence on the future. I just worry some may change there mind of a good ...

Re: BREEDER REVIEWS

What about a rating system for each breeder, could the poll option be used?

Re: Hunting Instinct?

I read that foxes kill all the chickens in a coup because it is a continuation of what they do if they come across a nest, if they find a nest they snap at as many birds as they can as it makes sense to catch them while it can rather than having to go hunting again. In a nest they might get some of ...

Re: Will an untrained dog protect it's owner?

I'd probably train my future Tamaskan for that too (not to be aggressive but to recognize when if want protection with a hand signal asking it to bark). I love the fact that many German Shepherds are trained to protect and IF I can get my future Tamaskans to do that too on the signal then it'd be g...

Going forward I don't see a problem with using Jodie as long as potential owners are aware of the lack of information on parentage, it is up to them to decide if they want a Jodie pup or not.

Julie, I understand where you are coming from.

Why was Jodie ever ...

I think greater transparency would be a good thing and open access to the database would be a good start. The only one I am split about revealing is Jodi. It would be good for the Tamaskan breed to have that information open, but then I think about the wishes of the other breeder involved. I don't k...
