German Shepherd Dog

by Ricardo E. Carbajal & Johannes Grewe
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".

Stella earned her 3 legs to achieve her CD in just 3 trials. With very nice scores of 184, 187, and 188 1/2 taking third out of 10 dogs for her last leg. We are very proud of her doing that well as young as she is. She was competing against two of our own dogs Esko and Fiby in two of the trials, and scored right up their with them.  
Stella is working very hard. One week after finishing her ACK CD she has earned her P1 (protection 1) title. She did a great job and received second place.
Stella has now earned her GN. In just 3 trials she earned her 3 legs. She finished her title with first place and a very nice score of 191.

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. So 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. Weight 30 kg to 40 kg.
Females: Height at the wither 55 cm to 60 cm.Weight 22 kg - 32 kg
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.
