Although the value of the studbook or pedigree for cynology cannot be overestimated, it is often overestimated in relation to the individual dog, as this in no way guarantees the advantages required by the breed standard. The value always lies in the individual himself, "since the family tree " (= the papers) - as the cynologist Schwarznecker so aptly put it "is nothing more than the factory stamp that provides information about when and where an animal was produced and by what type of quality its performance is likely to be. But the factory stamp must not be more important than the make: it can make the good better, but not the bad good. "
For this reason, I am now listing in my small but fine list of breeders those breeders who, in my opinion, not only value the external beauty of their offspring or nice "paper mating", but who also value the fact that their animals in essence correspond to the old type of German Spitz.
My criteria for selecting the breeders presented here are:
✔️ Breeding puppies that are as genetically healthy as possible - ideally based on the latest findings in cynology.
✔️ The breeder's focus should be as much as possible on preserving the original German Spitz (according to its variety)
❌ I am not interested in pure paper values, such as the calculated inbreeding coefficient (COI) - in opposite to the genetic COI. You could just as easily read a dog's COI from coffee grounds...
