where do I find old herding lines in WGSL? (plus I hate the roach back).
I fear that even a lower drive dog in some of these sport breedings may be too much for me. And whilst there are lots of breeders for schutzhund I am not seeing any breeding for "family companion" (in fact I fear this is a dirty word and by saying this I may be scorned & get the weakest pup in the litter).
The WGSL's aren't all roach backed. Kirschental lines would be one to check out.
The DDR lines's aren't what I'd consider 'sport' dogs.
And as posted above, you can get a great companion dog from any line, choosing the right breeder is key in that, however.
