Re: shoulder angle / "massive ground coverage"

Speaking of shoulders...I don't see any reference to shoulder angle or shoulder assembly in the breed standard listed on the TDR site. Is there another breed standard that addresses this?

Would these two dogs be littermates out of Blustag River Rising and Blustag Menominee Owl?

Re: Registered Dog's Names

Excellent question....I totally don't know either! I know Lynn posted on her website that: Kennel Names help form part of each dog’s name ie. the kennel name 'Tamtastic' would then follow with the dogs own name – Tamtastic Turnip. In this way people will know exactly which kennel bred each Tamaskan...

Registered Dog's Names

Just curious... Does the TDR require breeders to decide on the registered names for all their puppies? Is that a rule? Or just something of a tradition that has been kept? I understand why the litter gets a theme, no different than the breeds or breeders that give each litter a letter, work through ...

Same dog or different dogs?

Are Alba Lycan and Alba Lycaon different dogs or are they the same dog? In the data base they are listed with the same parents but because the names are so similar I just wanted to be sure they were in fact different dogs :)

Re: Artificial Insemination (AI)

It would be great so see the "future prospects" listed... upcoming stud dogs who are either not old enough yet or not health tested yet.

Re: Artificial Insemination (AI)

Something to consider when researching or planning an AI... Depending on where you live you may or may not require an import permit for your semen shipment. As an example in Canada you do require a permit ($35). You would need to plan ahead because permits may have an expiry date, and take time to p...

Something else extremely important to a small gene pool...well any gene pool really... is making sure everyone isn't using the same stud.

Re: VITALLY IMPORTANT FOR FUTURE BREEDERS

You wouldn't actually have any breeders that would consider doing a breeding with an unhealth tested dog right? :shock: I would be very disappointed in a breeder that would choose to do a breeding because it was local...and that was the only reason for the choice of the dog. That would be breeding f...
