    Update

    I sent an email to the breeder requesting information on the pedigree papers. Normally responds within a couple of hours. Sent the email last night and still no response

    Tah, I do love an update.

    Have you talked to Dogs Vic or The Rottweiler club of Victoria yet. Between them and Nehkbet, they should be able to let you know where things are at. If he is registered with Dogs Vic you need to let them know there is a problem because otherwise other people are going to get dudded.

    Some judges consider it a fault and others do not. Some a major and some a minor. A daughter of my bitch has a wave down her back and has been awarded V1 (excellent 1st) under a specialist european judge so I guess it depends on the dog and the judge.

    Thanks Nehkbet.

    I guess if the breeder is not a member of the rotti club - they don't have any say on what he does. And I'm sure their natural instinct would be to avoid rotti breeders who were not members of the relevant state club.

    and then there is the ANKC mess (pedigree or not to pedigree) which is a whole different can of worms. Hopefully when the dust is settled (maybe when the puppy is reaching its old age) that will be sorted somehow too.

    being members of breed clubs is quite a subjective thing in some cases ... for the rottie club I know they are doing a lot of awesome things for the dogs. Some other breeds like the GSD though, I would happily buy from a breeder not a member of the club.

    The wavy coat may sort itself out as pup matures.

    Judging is always subjective to individuality. If a dog was perfect in every other way would I let a wavy coat hold it back - no. But to another person it may be too much of a fault to overlook.

    The other weekend I went to a show. I watched two slightly different Whippets go around the ring. One was perfect on the stack, correct outline (which is important in a Whippet as outline is quite distinctive), the other less perfect on the stack floated around the ring. Which one to pick would depend on which fault I just couldn't overlook.

    Here Here, and having joined and left GSD Victoria, id never purchase through them, unless it was a dog i had met and admired.
    Temperaments of their winning dogs leaves a LOT to be desired. Some very nervous dogs and the squatting frog stance winning lots of titles, not something i would want as a family members that's for sure.

    Wavy coat along the back IS in the breed standard. Its acceptable.
