Before any of our dogs are used in our breeding program, they must pass a series of performance evaluations. We evaluate our dogs by assessing their...
Form follows function, and not the converse. Those who place structure (form) before ability (function) eventually end up losing the working attributes and health; therefore, we place the above working attributes first. While hip x-rays do not determine ability or even structural soundness, they can be used to identify physical limitations or predict concerns about the longevity of a dog's likelihood of developing physically limiting conditions such as hip dysplasia or arthritis. For this reason, we X-ray the hips on our breeding stock as a secondary measures of culling our breeding stock...for we expect our breeding stock remain capable throughout their entire lives.
Dogs that have proved breed worthy are available for stud for a fee, which must be paid before the stud service is provided. Please note, females must be brucellosis negative.
Our male dogs that are too young or that still have things to prove before being used in our breeding program are marked as "Prospect."

ASC's Justice is a very high drive dog, great with the family, and is probably our current top producing male stud. Justice sired ASC's Scratch, ASC's Indy, ASC's Onyx, ASC's Maggie, and several others that are proving to be excellent working class dogs.

Few dogs the size of ASC's Kovu work as well as he does. Kovu is a very powerful working dog with good drives and determination. At his size, he certainly is not our fastest or most agile dog, but he refuses to quit, and for that reason Kovu has our respect. Additionally, Kovu tends to produce dogs large than most of our other studs, but most importantly, his offspring are also generally considerably tighter and more agile than he himself is.
ASC's Reptar defines what the American Sentinel program is about. He has so many good qualities that it is difficult to know where to begin. He is very stable and affectionate, his confidence is very high, he has drives that seems endless, and his athleticism is outstanding. He is such a powerful animal with excellent endurance. He also has very good heat tolerance, or at least his drives are so strong that I haven't seen him yield even in hot weather. Additionally, his hip rating is excellent. Reptar has also demonstrated excellent potential as both a hog catch dog and as a protection dog. He is one of the finest dogs I have ever owned.
ASC's Scratch is out of ASC's Justice x ASC's Halo, and he defines what our program is about. His prey drive is phenomenal. His nerves are rock solid. His structure is great. His athleticism is exactly what one would hope for. This dog has already displayed the willingness to work at levels so strong that few dogs can compare. I will be repeating the breeding that produced him, and when I do I will keep the top male and the top two females. This is the type of dog that one could base an entire line on...the type of dog that someone could spend thousands of dollars trying to find and still not be able to. He will never be for sale.
ASC's Wrecker is a very well bred dog being out of ASC's Boss and ASC's Nunovit. Wrecker was born May 7th of 2013 and is tightly bred. Upon reviewing his pedigree, you will see he was bred to be what is known as a "seed dog," which means he was bred to produce. Fortunately for me, he does. He is the sire to our dogs ASC's Reptar, ASC's Widow, and ASC's Storm...each of which I am very happy with. Wrecker is also the biggest dog on my personal yard.
