My girls been desexed anyway so no shows in her future but it's nice to know that I could have.
The breeders don't own the sires to my puppies so I guess I'll tell you them too. The sires seem to be getting used quite a bit... I've seen lots of litters using them, especially Fakir vom Heinrichplatz... so there's going to be a lot of dogs looking like my girl around the country over the coming years. My males sire is Hero von Renderau. If you pop their names in google and check a couple of images you'll see where mine got their hair length and colour.
I just noticed that the previous owners of Fakir have removed his youtube videos I wish I'd saved a copy. Oh well, I'm sure they're still floating around somewhere on the net.

Ohhh thanks everyone I think all Shepherds are just gorgeous
I have no interest in showing or breeding (there's way way to many dogs ending up at shelters here already), they're just my pet dogs but I really want to learn more about training etc.
Ziltoid if you don't mind me asking where did you get your dogs from? They are lovely.

People pretty much use the terms "long coat" and "long stock coat" interchangably.
Technically, a long stock coat is a double coat with longer guard hairs, and a "longcoat" implies long guard hair with no undercoat--but I've never actually seen a GSD without an undercoat (sounds kinda nice ). So, practically speaking, long coats, long stock coats, "coats" or "coaties" are longhaired GSDs WITH undercoat.

|Questforfire||Beautiful dogs They would be classed as longcoats in the UK.|

Aww, your dogs are beautiful
Personally I love the red colour. I've always had the more golden colour in the past but this time round chose to go with red for both of mine.
It is great to learn about the breed. I got my dogs as pets and have never had any intentions of breeding or doing shows but still have a love for the breed and am interested in the different 'types' of shepherds around.

|Cassidy's Mom||True long coats (no undercoat) are not that common. Most of us with coaties actually have long stock coats but we still just refer to them as long coats.|
