I'll take pretty much anything, my only requirement is that breeders be willing to supply me with broods. Breeds I would love to learn more about..


But I'll take any suggestions happy :)

Oh, and I'm already in Rottis and AmStaffs in my other kennel.

Oh! I could so get you some nice dogs with Boxers! I've got them in my "Exalted" kennel.

Surprisingly, they really aren't as competitive as you would think. It's fairly easy to finish a good dog. I do t keep anything under 94.2 myself but I see 93+ finishing also.

Handlers can be hard to get your hands on if you don't enter shows early. Lots of nice dogs available and sales and studs are cheap. The breeders are super friendly. I have a couple I could send to you. happy :)

I also have Dobes in my "Fourlorn" kennel and I could spare a couple on there too. I don't keep anything lower then 94.65(7). 95s are becoming more common but I still see 94.2+ finishing roughly. Session pretty quick too and breeders are nice. Fees can get a little wild though. happy :)

I'll also agree that boxers are awesome! and echo what Creed said. Boxers also have entries in every show each night and usually majors so they aren't too hard to finish.

I have some nice partially sessioned puppies if you want something to show happy :) an try the breed out!

Great Danes - Hard to finish unless it's at least 97 or over.
Dobes - EasIER to finish but quality still needs to be there. A raft of 95+ Dobes have been born in the past week, so I'm assuming lowest show quality for easiest finishing is prob 94.85 now, 94.9 preferred.
GSDs - A good quality pup is easy to finish right now. Show entries in this breed are a little low lately it seems.

English Setters would love more players. Anything mid 90's and up is pretty easily finishable. We have specialties quite often and the players are friendly.

Or you could help a struggling breed...I am about the only fully active kennel in Manchester Terriers but can sell you a great dog and bitch puppy who are conditioned daily, and also lots of broods and cheap studs.

Newfies! I have 29 puppies at the moment, surely there's a nice brood in there somewhere! I *always* have dogs that have a poor SS or poor traits but have like one or two AMAZING traits. Like, this male has great traits all around, very versatile. But his SS is low, so he can't be shown (well, he won't win anything). And he would have had, by far, the highest breed SOP. I'm keeping him for sure but there are other similar dogs who would produce amazing puppies.

Showing is active, not impossible to get a start in but it is a breed that improves FAST so you need to stay on top of it.

I have Dachshunds, as well as Appenzeller Sennehunds in another kennel.

Breed: Dachshunds
Top SOP: Wire - 91.05. Long - 88.60. Short - 88.80
Showing SOP: 90.50+
Popularity: Pretty popular (a few breeders, one r two dedicated on showing, but most just entering their few high SOP's)
Special Projects: We have many colours which allows for many colour breeding projects. We also have three different types of coats. Two of which are currently not competitive which has led to many kennels choosing to pursue a breeding goal that way.

Breed: Appenzeller Sennehunds
Top SOP: 79.60
Showing SOP: There is a current high 76 in the ring right now, but I tend to stay in the 78's by preference. We pretty much make competition so, anything could really go with good handlers.
Popularity: Rare (one other breeder)
Special Projects: There is only one colour, but the other breeder prefers to keep their stock to themselves, so I have had to use source dogs. It would make a good project for someone to start their own lines, or I can give you dogs.

I can supply you with Appenzellers or SH Dachshunds, or point you in the right direction. If you have any questions feel free to PM me, or one of the other breeders! We don't bite!
Selma happy :)

Did you know?
A specialty show is a dog show which reviews a single breed, unlike other dog shows, particularly conformation shows, which are generally referred to as "all-breed" because they are open to all breeds recognized by the sponsoring kennel club.
