German Shepherd Dog

Hopefully we will all live to see the day when the German Shepherd dog world will be under the same concept, that of a well-structured, perfectly balanced dog capable of performing at the highest known levels. Perhaps we will see the day when fashion gives way to balance and the Golden Middle rises supreme, not as a choice among many, but rather as the only sensible option. In the meantime, on the eve of the centennial celebration of the "king of breeds" on this earth, let us remember the final plea of its founder, Max von Stephanitz's last words to his good friend Muller on his deathbed,
"Take this trouble for me:
make sure my German Shepherd Dog remains a WORKING dog, for I have struggled all my life long for that aim".

The we went back and did his Protection 1 (P1H) title. He took first place with and obedience score of 92.3 and a protection score of 93.1 with honors.
He earned the (H) HONORS on his title because it was on a field he dose not train on and on an honor decoy the he has never worked. He is a pleasure to train with.

He earned his first two legs of his CD title, placing 3RD and then 2ND with a very nice 185.

These legs were even at an indoor trail. He is very confident and easy to trial with.
6-14-15    Back & I traveled to Pennsylvania for the SDA Championship. He added his Protection Dog 1 Sleeve with honors and his Police Dog 1 title.
Both titles with very high OB scores of 92 and 93 points.

Remmie is showing us everyday just what we would hope to get in any of our puppies.
Broad head and muzzle with terrific expression. Muscular and strong body type built for performance.
Highly trainable, steady temperament with remarkable capacity for learning. Her desire to bond and perform for the handler is extraordinary.
Highly motivated to work. She is enthusiastic and enjoys working, will do anything for a ball.
In protection she hits hard showing great power, along with full hard grips under pressure.

6-14-15    Remmie showed us once again what she is made of.
She was entered in the SDA Championship in Pennsylvania to do the Protection Dog 1.
One week before the trial Goodie's dog Reika came up lame, and Goodie was not going to make the trip we had all planed for almost a year.
I asked her if she would trial Remmie for me so we could all have a dog to work. To my surprise Goodie said yes!
So with only the 5 day road trip to bond Goodie and Remmie stepped on the trial filed. On Saturday they tried the Police Dog 1 but fell short of the need score to pass.
But then on Sunday they stepped it up for the Championship and earned their Protection Dog 1 with HONORS (P1H).
To receive an honor title the dog must earn 90 or above (Remmie's score was 92) in the protection phase on an honor decoy they have not worked before.
They placed third for the P1's. We are so very proud of Goodie taking on a dog she had never worked, and Remmie putting forth all she has to make this all come out good.
12-5-15    Remmie back at work with her litter just 8 weeks old. Goodie wanted to finish what she started in June the PD1.
Congradulation to you and Remmie for a job well done. It is very hard to trial a dog you are not living with.

I would like to share a few words that express my thoughts on breeding working German Shepherds.
   There was a Germany before WW2 and all the German Shepherds came from that stock. What made the DDR program keep the dogs healthier and in some ways stronger in character is not the fact that they were bred in the northeastern part of the former unified Germany. It was because of the regulations the East government set for their police and working breeds after removing these breeds from the kennel club control and regulating their breeding programs governmentally.  The dogs all came from the same place. But went into different directions because of different breed regulations and controls. Since the fall of the DDR and Germany's reunification, the West (SV) regulations have been the only regulations in place. And we all saw the direction the West dogs had gone with their attitude about breeding. There were some isolated breeders in Germany (West) who bred according to their own standard they set for themselves. Greif comes from one of those, as did dogs like Bussecker Schloss etc.    My point to all this is that it matters most how dogs are bred, NOT WHERE.
Some dogs in West Germany, or Czech, or Holland, or Belgium, or Austria, or Switzerland were awesome. The fact that nobody seemed to care how these dogs were used in breeding is what caused the problems. It is getting very hard to find any good DDR stock.
There is no more DDR regulation stock.
So you have to settle for pedigrees with DDR dogs in them.
My point is that people slapping dogs who go back to DDR lines together does not make it a DDR dog, even if they claim 100%.
DDR dogs are German dogs anyway. The reason they were not messed up was because of the regulations the DDR had. Nobody follows those regulations, so there are no more DDR dogs.
Once again my point to this is:
     dogs who produced the same traits are important

Discussed and agreed upon by Armin Winkler and Jim Reed

Just who is looking after you and your family?
A German Shepherd dog is naturally equipped with what it takes to do the job better then any sensory systerm man has made. It can hear and sence danger where a video surveillance system dose not, and can chase after any intruder and stop them. It can tell the difference between an intruder and a family time or at night.





Considerations for the Canine Athlete: 
Long-Term Health Risks and Benefits Associated with Spay / Neuter in Dogs : 

We have questions all of the time about the the height and weight of our dogs. We have added that information by each dog. So we thought maybe we should add the standards for height and weight of the German Shepherd dog:
From Schutzhund USA web page: Size/Weight
Males: Height at the wither 60 cm to 65 cm.
Height 60 cm is equal to 23 inches. Height 65 cm is equial to 26 inches.
Weight 30 kg to 40 kg.
Weight 30 kg is equal to 66 pounds. Weight 40 kg is equal to 88 pounds.
Females: Height at the wither 55 cm to 60 cm.
Height 55 cm is equal to 21 inches. Height 60 cm is equial to 23 inches.
Weight 22 kg - 32 kg
Weight 22 kg is equal to 48 pounds. Weight 32 kg is equal to 70 pounds.
From AKC web page :
The desired height for males at the top of the highest point of the shoulder blade is 24 to 26 inches; and for bitches, 22 to 24 inches.
