“The best book since Gorrieri”, Prof. H. Messler, President of the SV, Germany.
Best Breed Book of 2016, Dog Writers Association of America

With over 200 pages and lavishly illustrated with over 500 illustrations, this is the definitive book on the breed.  Now available as a downloadable PDF eBook. The printed version quickly sold out and I have no immediate plans to do a second printing.

Below is my FlickRocket book shop. It will open in a new browser tab:

When you click the Select button at the bottom, you will be guided through the process of ordering your copy of The Illustrated Standard for the German Shepherd Dog. Payment is via Paypal. The price is shown in Canadian dollars, but will be processed by Paypal at $25 USD.

Flickrocket is the leading DRM (digital rights management) company with offices in the United States, the UK and Germany. When you purchase your eBook, you will be prompted to download the Flux Player software that encrypts the eBook. Flux Player looks and functions a lot like Adobe Reader, which everyone uses to read pdfs.

The eBook is licenced for the lifetime of the individual computer, tablet or ipad to which you download the eBook file, and may be downloaded to three devices. It cannot be copied or distributed.

This is a short video explaining the process of downloading a digital product from FlickRocket, as well as Flux Player. The video was created by Scott Burdick, a wonderful painter who has been selling his art videos on FlickRocket for years.

Please note that your order does not come to me, and technical support is provided by FlickRocket.

Flickrocket technical support is second to none. THANK YOU RON!
