Since I am trying to do a pure source line of Lowchen here in my kennel, I thought I would begin posting my progress.

I am now on generation 17, and here is my best one
www.showdog.com/dog.aspx?id=16713301

Now I know she isn't all that great when looking at her SOP of Genetic Quality at 17.65, but on the old SOP her Genetic Quality is 71.9

I’ve been doing this since 2006.
You are doing it differently than I do it.

In my opinion, true source breeding is breeding 2 of the same generations together.
For instance, Gen 10 to a Gen 10 then Gen 11 to a Gen 11 and so on.

It takes a few years, doing it this way, to start getting blues.

It is a labour of love, that is for sure. happy :)

Keep up the good work. I hope you have other kennels to keep you interested.

BTW, your naming is mind blowing...LOL

Thank you, Carol
I do have other breeds to keep me busy. happy :)
lol- yes my naming is a bit strange but it is the kennel name then the regist. number then generation, then SOP.
That way I don't have to worry about names until later.
Hope to see you in the ring at a later date with the source-bred dogs,
Happy showing!
happy :)

Hi, Carol from Caulfeilds here.

I don’t see my dogs being ring ready for a couple of years.

Show SOP for Welsh Springers is about 95.4.
I have just now broken 90 in Caulfeilds.

It will be a great day when it happens though.

Carol

In the American Kennel Club, a dog needs 15 points to become a Champion, with each win gaining anywhere from zero to five points depending on the number of dogs competing and the area where the show is held.
