Re: Conformation


    I think Jerry from Northwoods hit the nail right on the head. He does not breed to the standard, he breeds so that the size and angulation is proportionate to the individual dog itself, not whether it meets the breed standard. This would give the breeder more flexibility in there breeding program as far as size and style of the type of dog they are looking for. Jerry I know runs in some field trials, and his dogs run smaller, but he holds to his keys of conformation to the individual dog, and going by Robert Wehle’s footprint can’t be all bad, I heard that he had a pretty good line of dogs himself:)
