Except by constant references to the stud books in which many of the foundation dogs were later registered it is not even easy to tell who was actually the breeder of notable individuals. There were then no fixed rules regarding names. Dogs frequently bore the kennel name of owner rather than breeder and often changed names with ownership. Some of them consequently appear under three or four different and confusing aliases.
This, of course, makes it very confusing when looking back at the early stud and breed books. We're never quite sure if it's the same dog, or a different dog, as the names can vary. So, we have added a field where you can put in a second name that the dog may have been registered as or referred to.
