Our American Sentinels - Honest Working Bandogs


1ST - A NOTE ABOUT PERFORMANCE TESTING
Before any of our dogs are used in our breeding program, they have to pass a series of performance evaluations. We measure a dog's beauty by assessing its ability 1) to work with our family, and 2) to fulfill a healthy functional life. Natural selection works, and the show ring will never consistently produce functional healthy working animals. No matter how arrogant a breeder is, the only way to truly know if an individual is structurally sound and capable of working is to simply work the dog and observe recovery time. Form follows function, and the converse of this is not true. Those who consistently breed for "good" structure first (form) always end up eventually losing ability (function). Function has to come first, not second. As a result, in terms of health and ability, breeding for the show rings is a bad idea. To maintain ability and health, you have to test ability and health first...which is exactly what nature does. This is why we at American Sentinel K9, LLC use performance testing to identify which individuals are breed worthy in our pursuit of breeding healthy, able bodied dogs.

2ND - A NOTE ABOUT HIP X-RAYS
The above will identify which individuals are able bodied today, but it won't predict the future. It is true that hip x-rays will never determine ability or even structural soundness, but they can be used to identify physical limitations. As long as performance testing remains the top objective, it is fine to use additional secondary measures of culling the breeding stock. In addition to our performance testing, we also screen the hips in all of our breeding stock to help identify individuals that may have structural problems later in life. As a breeder, I want to be sure that none of our breeding stock has poorly developed hip sockets, thickening of the femoral neck, and/or slack between the femoral heads and socket...for I want to see our breeding stock remain capable throughout their entire lives.

----------Our Males----------

Stud service by our males is $1500
1. Females must test negative for Brucellosis, and
2. Stud fee must be paid prior to the service.

We have included a table for each dog to include a short description, the dog's pedigree, the dog's hip X-Ray, one large photo & 2 small photos (you can click on the photos to see additional pictures), and a video & link to more videos of each dog. Even though our breeding program began in 2000, it wasn't until April 28th of 2005 that ASC's Preacher-Man was born. Right at the start it was clear he was a great prospect, and as he developed it became more and more evident just how phenomenal this dog was (11 years old HERE). Eventually, he and close relatives became the corner-stone of our breeding program, so he is listed first on this page. Our current dogs are listed below him in alphabetical order with our males and our females separated. Thanks for viewing.

ASC's Preacher-Man


On February 6th of 2017, ASC's Preacher-Man passed away. He was just 2 months shy of being 12 years old. Throughout his life, Preacher remained a stable, loyal, healthy, and confident dog that displayed naturally protective instincts. His training only capitalized on such. Despite his protective nature, he remained playful and mellow with the family. Preacher was a highly driven, powerful guardian and was both structurally and mentally sound. He had a never give up attitude. We love this dog, and he clearly loved us as well.

ASC's Justice


ASC's Justice is a very serious protection dog with outstanding determination, endurance, agility, and speed. If you are a decoy, mind your P's and Q's, for while he is sharp, he also has nerves of steel. Justice is a very reliable PP dog, and he is a great companion to our entire family. Justice was produced by ASC's Preacher-Man x ASC's Blue Jean, which makes him a full sibling to ASC's Luci, ASC's Preacher-Girl, ASC's Tiggie, and ASC's Valkyrie.

ASC's Reptar


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 Vlad the Impaler


Vlad is out of ASC's Preacher-Man and Wildling of ASC. He is a young dog that displays good prey drive and he is showing some defense as well by alerting nicely when company arrives. His structure is very nice and his hips were rated as good. Several of his litter mates have already been used as hog dogs, and used rather successfully at that. We look forward to his continued development here at American Sentinel K9, LLC.

Note: Vlad was 12 months old in the photo on the right and 7 months old in the photos below. Hips were screened at 13 months.

ASC's Wrecker


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.

-------ASC'S FEMALES-------

The role females play in a breeding program is at least 50%, as they not only provide half the genetics, they also provide all the mitochondrial DNA, provide milk nourishment, and raise the pups for the first five weeks. For this reason quality females (both mind and body) are essential to any good program. We advise buyers to not purchase a dog just because they like the sire. Consider the major role the female plays before purchasing a dog.

ASC's Delilah


Delilah is double bred on ASC's Preacher-Man...being out of Preacher-Man and his daughter ASC's Lucile. Delilah is a very powerful girl with excellent prey drive and solid defense as well. She should be a solid producer throwing consistent phenotypes. Delilah has a very high desire to please, is exceptional with the kids, and has a rear quarter built for power. Her movement is flawless, and her photos do not do her justice in terms of illustrating her natural muscle tone.

ASC's Faith


Faith is one of my personal favorite females and is heavily bred on ASC's Preacher-Man and of pure Captain Skip x Eclipse foundation. She not only looks just like Preacher, but she acts just like him in many ways as well, although she has much less training. I expect her to play a valuable role in the future of the American Sentinel's continued success.

ASC's Halo


ASC's Halo is one of my favorite up and coming females. She is out of Little Rascal x ASC's Valkyrie, has excellent drives, excellent nerves, and excellent structure.

ASC's Nunovit


To capture the traits that make ASC's Preacher-Man such a great dog and to provide our program with a consistent producer of such traits, we bred Preacher-Man back to his exceptional sister ASC's Gator. "Nunovit" was the pick female from that breeding. When Nunovit was young, she clearly illustrated to me many of the traits I desire in BOTH protection dogs and catch dogs. With proper training, I said to myself, "a criminal would want none of it," and this is how she obtained her name. Click on the pictures below to see two other images.

ASC's Preacher-Girl


ASC's Preacher-Girl is out of ASC's Preacher-Man and ASC's Blue Jean, and is a younger sibling to ASC's Tiggie and ASC's Justice. She was born June 7, 2014. Preacher-Girl is a high drive girl with good nerves, is very stable, and produces dogs with a strong protection instinct. She works like her siblings.

ASC's Storm


ASC's Storm (pictured at 17 months) is out of ASC's Wrecker x ASC's Little Hurtin. She has great structural conformation, excellent drives, solid nerves, and is super athletic. I am looking forward to great things from this girl.

Updates are due on this beautiful girl, as my current photos do not do her justice. I will be taking some new photos and video soon.

ASC's Tiggie


Tiggie is out of ASC's Preacher-Man and ASC's Blue Jean, and is a full sibling to Justice, Valkyrie, Luci, and Preacher-Girl, and like all her siblings, Tiggie is very high drive with loads of fight and prey drive, along with a good defensive response to unwarranted social aggression. Her nerves are also very sound. At 16 weeks old, she was working under gunfire without any reservations. We have thought about doing some more sport oriented type protection work with her as she certainly has the traits needed for such work. Tiggie is also a solid producer. She produced both Reptar and Widow when bred to Wrecker.
Tiggie will play a major role in our program's future.

ASC's Valkyrie


ASC's Valkyrie is owned and handled by our close friend Keaten Temple, but will still play a major role in our program. She is the biggest girl out of the Preacher-Man x Blue Jean combination, yet her drives and athleticism are both phenomenal. She can clear a six foot fence without difficulty. Her conformation is very good. Not only has Valkyrie proven that she can excel at protection training and bitework, but she has also caught wild hogs and boar...and loves it. She is a high energy dog, yet still very stable with the family.

ASC's Widow


ASC's Widow is out of ASC's Wrecker x ASC's Tiggie and is a litter mate to ASC's Reptar. This is a big, strong, high drive female. Her structure is good, and bite work comes to her naturally.

YOUNG PROSPECTS

Betty Crocker


They say, "If you cannot take the heat, get out of the kitchen." Betty Crocker is out of Big Kuntry's Stone Cold (3xW) and ASC's Tiggie. Tiggie has produced very well for us in the past, and with Stone Cold as Betty Crocker's father I suspect she will turn the heat on in the kitchen.

OUR American Sentinel K9 PROGRAM...

Before you purchase a dog from a breeder, please take the time to be sure you are funding an ethical breeder that maintains clean and healthy conditions for their dogs, and are not supporting someone that keeps dogs in small plastic or wire crates 24-7. Healthy working dogs need exercise and proper care. With the interest in "Bandogs" on the rise, many programs come and go, but do not invest the proper time or care to keep, develop, train, and test their dogs appropriately. My program was established in 2000, but my training began even before then. As long as the good Lord enables me, it is my intent to continue my program for several more decades and to offer them the best care I can.

A quality breeding program must maintain access to a significant gene pool of quality specimens from which appropriate breeding selections can be made, not just one or two good males being bred to average quality females. Undedicated kennels often only keep a few males but many lower quality females for quick breeding, and they do this because they know most clients only look at the male. This mistake restricts breeding decisions and genetic selection. Over time, such kennels typically fade away in just a few years as they find themselves being unsuccessful. Very few kennels last more than 5 years...disappearing as quickly as they pop up. Our program began in 2000, and has remained focused, dedicated, and well established...simply getting stronger ever year.

A kennel truly dedicated to bettering a breed must maintain access to both a number of quality of males and females. Very few facilities have the time, staff, and/or resources to do this with even one breed of dog, much less several breeds of dogs. Beware of programs that have more than two breeds of dogs, for when one's goal is to improve a breed, every potential kennel space becomes occupied with a dog that helps the breeder obtain that goal. When dealing with working dogs, the labors become even more compounded. Every dog we keep plays a role in furthering the development of the American Sentinel Canine breeding program. Testing and properly selecting the best candidates prior to breeding is a necessity. Only after testing a dog's ability to perform a desired task should breeding programs determine which specimens are bred. Our program sticks to our clearly defined goal to produce the ultimate family companion guardian. Few programs have an adequate number of dogs to have a qualified gene pool, understand genetic principles, and have clearly defined goals. Even fewer programs test their dog’s ability to perform at a given goal. By developing our understanding of genetic principles, animal physiology, and animal behavior; by being able to maintain a large number of quality specimens of each sex; and by testing and selecting these dogs on their ability to perform exclusively at clearly defined and specific goals, American Sentinel K9, LLC is able to make breeding decisions that are truly in the best interest of the breed's development; therefore, we are able to solidify our success at producing stable, loyal, powerful, athletic, family companion K-9 guardians that are suitable for active family settings. Our dedication to fulfill all these requirements is why the American Sentinel Canineis the finest Bandog type program in the world. If you doubt this claim, research the various programs out there and find another such program that does this. Don't look for hype, look for facts. Don't look at claims, look at the work. Look at the education, training, facility, duration, foundation, depth, and success of the various "programs" that are out there and typically what you will find will consist of claims, but little facts and even lesser proof.

Over the years, American Sentinel K9, LLC has grown extensively and maintained a high quality breeding program in an independent fashion; however, to further our success and the future of the American Sentinel we have expanded and have developed a few "extension programs" with select individuals. This expansion allows us to select, maintain access to, train, and develop even a larger number of quality dogs, further solidifying the success of the American Sentinel program. If you are interested in becoming an extension of our own program, feel free to contact me at AmericanSentinelK9@gmail.com.
