    Hello everyone,

    Just wanted to drop a note to say hello and say you have a really nice forum going here.

    Some of you seem to be familiar with my dogs already.
    I have gone back and read some of your past conversations.

    Belated thank you to those who appreciate our dogs and have recommended our kennel to others.

    I look forward to joining your discussions when I am able.

    Gosh, What don't i use in determining which dogs to breed....

    First off i don't breed "SHOW DOGS"
    Im not one of those people that breed for the show ring. I just happen to love showing and competition (leftovers from showing horses as a kid). We show what we breed. Im not looking for the next Top Ten dog.
    What we do breed for is Temperament, Drive, brains, and structure that fits not only the UKC standard but the ADBA one as well.
    A truely balanced dog in both beauty and brains is the goal here.

    I really don't like to sell to show homes often. Most of the dogs from our kennel that have been titled we have done ourselves. Show homes normaly stink. People that are out to win in the ring and boost their ego first off don't want a Red nose dog. They would be starting out fighting uphill in UKC with a Red nose.
    As Falon already knows...

    I don't want any dog that is from our yard to end up relagated to the kennel or chain after a CH title. I want homes that want an companion to share their full life with. Homes that want an all purpose dog that has the brains to do whatever activity they might be interested in now or later are the type i look for to sell a dog to.

    To determine which dogs are bred together we look at first where is our breeding program headed and who will be needed in the next 5 generations to accomplish our goals.
    Second, we health test to determine who is of sound quality to get us to the end goal.
    Third, I investigate Co-eff's and ancestors to determine what dogs will produce the phenotype and genotype im looking to build on for the next generations.
    fourth, Well call me silly, but i have to personaly LIKE the dogs im looking into breeding. They have to have an "IT" factor.
    fifth, I breed for myself and what i want in a dog. If i happen to have extra puppies then i offer them for sale. I don't breed to make money nor to populate the world with my dogs.
    God knows im so far in the red with these dogs i will never break the surface anyway. Thats ok. Showing is expensive, but i love it.

    I also understand that showing isn't for everyone and don't require my puppy buyers to have the same goals as myself. Just want honest people, that what a good dog for honest reasons. Nothing makes me madder than someone lying to me about themselves then using my dogs for illegal purposes. Im a UKC Judge and can not condone such activities.

    Im starting to ramble, but a bit more information about us....
    Last year we had 4 dogs in the UKC All Stars for Weight pulling.
    We have had dogs in the All Stars every year since it started. Doesn't make us the best kennel for pulling dogs out there .... Just means we do stuff with our dogs.

    I think that preservation of the history of the breed is very important.
    Im on the breed standard committee for NAPBTA.
    I don't think that fighting is all this breed is good for though, and would like to set a good example to the General Public with regards to this breed having other purposes than the illegal ones.
    We must keep the history of the breed in mind though when breeding and not stray from what the breed was used for. Not JUST the sporting aspect of the dogs, but the fact that they have throughout history been used as an All purpose dog and should maintain the balanced stucture both of mind and body to still perform whatever tasks the owners like.

    I hope that helps you understand a bit more about us and the dogs at Ro-Ki Reds.

    Let me introduce you to Brody.
    Brody is one of the boys on our yard. He has a fantastic temperament and a very drivey dog that has not only performed well for us in the show ring and WP track, but is also a fantastic pet that keeps us busy and entertained everyday.

    He is quite a handfull if we don't keep him busy but a really fun dog to own.
