Many of the experienced GSD folks or breeders no longer post here. Or if they do it isn't often. The GSD use to be a working breed, those that actively work or train aren't the ones that are drowning out others are they?
I see a lot less of the breeders that breed show lines. Yes the GSD is a working BREED but does it have to be IPO? Some people think that is the only thing out there that proves a GSD is a GSD. The division on this forum is amongst the lines, but in the end they are all the same breed.
