Re: What is the purpose of the Tamaskan Dog?

Prey drive is high with Northern breeds. I don't think it is very realistic to eliminate this trait if we want to keep the Tamaskan based primarily on Northern breeds (Husky etc.). Same goes for separation anxiety, and some other traits our Tamaskan show currently.. they come from the Husky backgro...

Re: Red Wolf's Last Stand

Removing one species to preserve another is questionable, but unfortunately it continues to be done. Sometimes it results in more hunting permits being sold for that season to 'take' the offending animal. In California we have a (native) subspecies of rocky mountain sheep that have been dwindling in...

Re: DNA profiles for puppies?

Personally, I think that's too much to ask of the breeder. Supplying the dam/sire's DNA profile should be enough IMO. If the new owner wants to have the test done, then the price should be added to the cost of the puppy. being that the DNA profiling of 1 dog is like 45$ (if I remember correctly, an...
