- Show class is the highest quality of the animal and the highest breeding level. Dogs of this level are many years of work in the selection of breeders who know the breed.
Show-class puppies are animals with outstanding pedigree data and claim the first prizes at dogshows.
Show-class puppies from breed-class are difficult to distinguish even for an experienced specialist, especially at an early age.
Usually the bet is made on the outstanding breed data of the parents. The best female is crossed with the best male. This method in breeding is called artificial prepotency (when the best is crossed with the best). This is not a guarantee that all show-class puppies will be produced in the litter. In such a litter, there may well be a breed-class and even a pet-class.
Another option is when a prepotent male of show class is used in breeding. This male significantly improves the quality of the puppies. After all, the task of the male is to improve the quality of the female. Therefore, from such a male and from a female, for example, a breed-class, puppies of both show-class and breed-class may well appear.
However, the most outstanding results can be observed from the mating of two inbred animals. If the calculation is done correctly, then from such combinations children can be born much better than parents. This improves the quality of the breed.
So, it becomes clear that when purchasing a show-class puppy, no one can guarantee that his breed data will not remain at the breed-class level.
Conclusion - for breeding work, you need to purchase a puppy older than 5-6 months. And the older the better.
And, although the price of such puppies increases, do not forget that you are purchasing a show-class dog for purposeful breeding work.
Therefore, take your time, it is better to pay a little more, but be sure of the quality of the purchased animal.
