FB, Am I understanding this right. Lets say that since my female's sire is FC Bullock's Creek Hoss his dominate traits along with some of hers will be as prominate as whatever stud dog I choose for her. This is an interesting study. I've never seen a three eared dog have you?http://www.akc.org/breeders/resp_breeding/Articles/maternalgrandsire.cfm
Interesting article. Any of you have an opinion on it?
A handler can ruin a dog, but if the genetics are not there you can't replace a dogs DNA, and a experienced handler or hunter knows there is no need wasting time in an attempt to prove it is the handler and not the genetics.You can't force a dog to hunt nor can you add olfactory glands to its nose to make it more able to smell its game.Which you acknowledge in your last sentence,which in reality even you know you can't make an FC out of a cull!!The truth is what anyone wants it to be,but the facts still remain the facts.The study does not include 1 important factor. A good handler.
A handler can ruin a good dog or make a fc out of someones cull.
If the hunt and foot and nose is there.
