About this breeding...

PWRTRIPP Grit x Imp. Blacksheep Jackie (aka Babble)

DOB: July 31, 2019

This litter was the first for Babble. I bred her to Grit because I really appreciate his kind, responsive nature as well as his super athletic talents. Babble is a bitch that is not lacking in any drives. She's sharp, fast and focused when training and working. At home she's a relatively easy dog to live with and isn't pushy or overly active in the house but she does have guarding/stranger danger tendencies. That said, once through inspection she is often one of the first ones to sit up on someone's lap. She was easily one of the faster dog on our Flyball team running low 3.9's in tail position. 

The pups from Grit x Babble are all doing some form of sports including Agility, Disc, Flyball, Dock and herding training and coming along well in their chosen venues. Most are happy, social and outgoing pups with the exception of Dash, one of the female pups, owned by Peyton Green who began showing sensitivity issues (handler and environmental) around 8-10 months of age. Peyton has worked her ass of with Dash to help her through this and they have already managed to trial in Agility, Dock, Disc and Herding before her second birthday! I am very proud of what they are accomplishing together despite the bumps in the road.

UPDATE 7/27/2021: After having a chance to watch Babble's pups grow and mature, I've decided to remove the line from my breeding program. This is a massive disappointment to me because she has some really outstanding offspring that truly encompass everything I was striving for in breeding Babble in the first place... and although I absolutely do NOT regret breeding her, I do believe in looking at the big picture moving forward. Based on the two pups she's produced herself with a few temperament faults as well as those I've learned about out of her sister it is likely the best decision.
