    the most impressive pups I've seen recently were out of a HT breeding, crossing some very old school lines together.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    I know of one upcoming Pete breeding. I believe he was bred once this past summer also.

    Really????? I mean he's incredible & I wish his issue wasn't the case. He just received very high praise this past weekend from Mr. Danny.

    Maybe it's in my nature to tease Very hard to convince certain owners to do the FT thing, did railroad one into a single Qual run, he jammed, which the owner compared to kissing your sister, I don't see FTs in the dog's future. Which is too bad.

    I was amazed that no one has listed Grady yet on this list.

    Gawth, agreed.

    Shaq, Grady, Fen.

    Many of the dogs mentioned are certainly great competitors thus far and they could become good producers, but some of them have yet to sire a litter or have litters even past derby age yet. So not sure they would make a top few dogs list unless they were being bred to a attention catching bitch.

    Which dogs that you said wouldn't make a list are you talking about? It would certainly be nice to know.

    If we are talking best producers, then none would make the list that haven't even been bred or shown pretty good early positives with pups at least in derbies. If we are talking dogs that are studs that we may be interested in getting a pup by, then most of what has been listed is very reasonable. I took it the original post was more directed to current living best producers, not hopefuls.

    Good Point Travis: but if you look at the top producing sire for the just completed National, it was Chopper (Clubmead's Road Warrior)...well he and the last of his semen are gone, so what the next alternative...either a sibling or one of his viable, titled offspring(Slider)...in fact of all the top producing sires at the last National, only one is still alive (Grady)
