What is the fastest a GSD can go?
I have seen several speeds out of Bear, my 8 mo male. He is somewhere over 70lbs now, next checkup in two weeks.
Walk, Trot, Glide, Canter, Gallop, Chase, and tonight after something he saw in the distance, BTTWA. Balls-to-the-Wall Afterburner. I have never had a dog that moved that fast!
SO what's a GSD clock over the short to medium distance? Bear covered about 300 yards faster than I could visually track him in the dark. I saw him go past me, and then at the other end on a power turn under a streetlamp. as he decelerated, not a whole lot of time afterwards.
He had to have seen something in the distance because he would have had any cat or rabbit in the straightaway.
Ignorance is Fixable
Contrary to popular thought, life does not hinge around big decisions at crisis points, but small everyday decisions that lead almost inexorably to crisis. Virtue lies in not being lazy when choosing, even in a small way.
