Goals, Plan & Progress

Our Goals:
Preservation of the rare Anatolian Shepherd breed
Improvement in the quality of offspring produced

How We Meet Our Goals:

1.     We screen and choose Anatolians that are top-notch examples of :

             Excellent guardians of livestock

             Superb conformation

             Wonderful temperaments

             Hardiness and health

             Thick bone structure

             The variety of body types, colors, and coat lengths

2.     We import those Anatolians from different geographical areas of their native land in Turkey

3.     We breed with stringent criteria and careful record-keeping on litters

             Maintaining weight charts on all litters

             Temperament testing of litters

             Pat Hastings evaluations of 8 week old puppies

             Vet exams and reports on all litters

             Require OFA preliminary hip reports at 6 months old

4.     Our testing allows comparison within and across litters and comparison with other Anatolians, to inform our progress

5.     We require adherence to the Code of Ethics for the breed club by all puppy buyers who become breeders

Progress Report:
Shepherds Rest started in 2001 and is continuing strong.
In 2012 we had produced 11 litters and 63 puppies (an average of 5 puppies per litter).
We began at 50% breeding/show quality with our first litter in 2006.
In 2012 we began achieving 100% breeding quality, with all import parentage!
Our overall average breeding quality percent of pups in a litter was up to 75% in 2012 and continues to rise!

*Note: All breeding quality percentages were determined by Pat Hastings in her formal litter evaluations.
Pat does not certify anyone else to do Pat Hastings litter evaluations.
Statistically her finding is that litters are normally 50% breeding/show quality and 50% pet quality.
