The German Shepherd Dog

THE GSD

Readers over the years have sent me many pictures of their dogs gaiting, working, or simply displaying some interesting genetic trait. I’m happy to receive them, and the messages from all over the world in many different languages, but if you need a response, English is best.

I receive many requests for information, and responding to them can get quite time consuming. My new book:

THE ILLUSTRATED STANDARD FOR
THE GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG

is finally off the press! Any questions you have about the breed, its anatomy, structure and gait are probably answered in this massively illustrated book. You can find more information on this book, and how to purchase it, on the page THE STANDARD, linked above.
