Re: KNPV Lines

I have a feeling that some of this has to do with the breeding programs developed in the USA off established KNPV lines. The only problem I see with that, is knowing who the reputable individuals are. I know there are pockets of breeders with very good dogs, I've stumbled across them here on the WDF but since I won't get on board with FaceBook or where ever else working dog folks are socially networking and am no longer in contact with some of those individuals, I'm SOL.

Maybe better said, I am dubious that finding a good dog isn't going to require another 1-2 year investment of my time in developing a rapport with someone I'd like to get a dog from.

On the topic of KNPV lines, Khoi I'd like to see some more video of that dog you posted above.

Yes i am totally fine with importing a dog! I am just not quite sure how i would be able to tell if the dog will be right for me with out having met him.


That's the problem nowadays. There are now brokers on both sides of the deal and they both want their share of course and that becomes more important than getting you the dog that is right for what you want to do with it. It's business now but it wasn't always the case. JMHO.

I agree, and I haven't been all that well connected and only involved with Dutch lined dogs since 2009. A bit of a sad commentary on the situation considering. If I am wrong about this, someone please correct me. Travel is not a concern. I've visited many breeders and consider it part of the deal in forming a relationship and making an informed decision.

Re: KNPV Lines

I love my K10 puppy who comes from knpv lines. She is great with my two young kids, confident, and a hard worker.

Re: KNPV Lines

Just asking out of curiosity, do you (the collective "you," that is) see anything filling that void?

It seems if there is enough need (and thus enough money too), that something would fill the void left by a shortage of reliable KNPV line dogs. That could be via a new sport that would help test for certain types of dogs, or evolution of an old one, or people turning to Ring/SchH/PSA/whatever for their working dogs, or just a reliance on individual breeders who breed the kind of dog people want for police/K9, SAR, sport, PPD, whatever.

That is all just my musing, however. I know some breeders that I trust and have heard enough from to get a dog from if I were in the market. And yet, I am not really in the mix of things and my priorities/needs at the moment are different than most. It just seems if there is enough legitimate need, interest, and yes, money, that something like KNPV (or that would fill that niche) would arise. I think PSA and attempts at a sort of KNPV-USA have attempted that, yet never seemed to really take off.

-Cheers

I do and it's a bit of an age old problem of sort. It's money = contractors and breeders with areas of specialization.
