Are there any breeds that have an active group of source breeders? Thinking of trying it, most of the breeds I used to play (besides ECS) are at 100%, which is no fun.

Thinking maybe Brittanys, GSP, GWP.. others?

When you say "Source Breeder", do you mean true source to source- or do you mean source to current sop breedings?

I mean true source breeding. I have a kennel of dogs in the 98’s-99’s.

The breeds i started in are all at 100’s, which seems pointless to me. So looking for a breed that has active source breeders to show against.

I just got my first litters of Gen 1 Brittanys (on Alt kennel) but still open to other breeds.

I'm in Bloodhounds and I currently have 2 lines, a Source line, and a high SOP line. I started with just source dogs, but there were a few existing studs that had 90+ SOP that I bred with to get my current line. So, not really "true" Source x Source, but I currently have dogs in the 30's pushing into the 40's. Not a ton of showing activity, but I run my high SOP dogs occasionally. The high SOP line is in the high 90's and it comes from hidden/ghost studs and a previous bloodhound breeder that sold me a pair of 700+ day old bitches. I tried Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs and Kooikerhondjes in one of my other kennels, but I am just not patient enough for true source breeding.

I’m working on Bloodhounds but I’m not doing strictly source since I was sort of struggling with it. But I’m using Grenich as my leaning post wink ;)

Bloodhounds have a great little community, for sure!

Sadiera, true Source breeding takes YEARS.

I have been source breeding in this kennel since forever.
My dogs are not near show quality,

I love it.
It is not for the faint of heart and not for the uncommitted.

I am currently doing a Source breeding project.
Breeding Source to current SOP.
The project has a goal.

Newfoundland Dogs have been locked with 10.2 in Head for a number of years.
My goal is a head stat of 9.9, 10 or 10.1 in a finishable SOP dog.

I am on generation 7 from Source now and it is still going to take months.

I will persevere.

Cheers

Yeah, my youngest show quality ECS are Gen 157. That’s about 13 years with a wider pool of dogs.
