Sweep certainly has been a busy boy.
Am I right thinking he is otherwise known as Pooch? Or am I confusing 2 dogs. Sweep is Amos's father.

:wink: yes I know but its another way of a dog getting a SH CH qualification in the UK though it would be wonderful to see a Lab or poodle get that level of success in agility but I suspect the Border Collies and Kelpies will reign in that area!

There was a standard poodle obedience champ. Since the height of the jumps was reduced at agilty I doubt very much a standard poodle will have a chance amongst the smaller dogs but min poodles reign on the lower course!

Sweep and Pooch are the same dog, his third name should be 'Lucky Boy'!!!!!

Are there any guidelines to how many bitches a dog should have and how frequently? Just been reading the "puppy finder thread".

Ive seen a lot of questions about stud dogs recently, fitness, tests age etc.
The general rule is that a stud dog must be in good health, of good and proven temperament, ie not a puppy whose temperament could change and the dog must have his breed specific health tests satisfactorily completed. This generally means that he is unlikely to be much under 15 months as hip scores are not done under 12 months and take about 6 weeks to return. I personally would not use a dog at stud until fully adult at over 2 years old but many are happy to use younger dogs. I prefer older dogs with a proven track record of producing high quality happy confident pups. With older dogs it is also possible to know whether they have had any significant number of puppies which are not in the best health or even if they have thrown inherited disease and should be avoided. A young stud is much more risky but that does not make him a bad choice, but just a different choice. There is always a risk of narrowing the gene pool too much if everybody uses the same super stud dog, its particularly hard to find a suitable mate in the next generation. Dogs should also have recovery time between bitches to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted disease, I'm very careful with my precious girls and no overused stud would be allowed anywhere near them!

Perhaps we should open a thread entitled pics of Pooches offspring, so we can compare them all. It'd be interesting to see similarities. :D

We have a Kimberlenes puppy called Pasha who was born on 26th January 2007. Her mother was Missy and her father - I think - Digby? Have to check, he is not one of Steve's anyway. She is cream with a fleecy coat and we all love her. Would love to find siblings, I think one of them was the boy that was mentioned a couple of weeks ago whose owners have to rehome him. I have been on this site several times a day since about December but hardly ever post anything; I read all the posts though. My experience with Kimberlenes was that Steve really does care about his dogs and he was extremely cautious about selling his puppies. He asked loads of questions, as did I, and was very helpful when I rang him afterwards about a couple of things. Pasha has a great temperament which was crucial to us as we have five young children and I cannot fault her. At this moment she is lying on the children's mini trampoline which she thinks is hers (she bounces from one end of the room to the other on it) with her favourite toy. Kimberlenes are certainly expensive and I am sure there was no need to spend so much money, but I do feel that I got a lovely puppy from there and given how many years we hope to have these dogs it seems like money well spent.
