Re: Brittany Pedigree

Since that's not any kind of certified pedigree, you don't know what titles might be in there. You can run some of the names through NSTRA and see if they placed there. Otherwise, you'll need an official AKC pedigree to tell much on titles. That pedigree is one I built off the AKC pedigree. So it i...

All of this said, they may be great hunting dogs but you will have to check it out yourself. Is there anythin...

Brittany Pedigree

I was asked to possibly help train and find a home for a Brittany locally here. He is a nice dog. Just wondering if I can get any feedback on pedigree as I don't know Brittany Pedigree as GSP's are my main breed. Here is a link to pedigree:
