If that's so then I really don't want to take the risk. Just wish I knew some working line German Shepherd dog enthusiasts or experts so I can have some sort of help in selecting a pup. All I really have are the breeders' word and I don't think that that's particularly reliable. Wish I could post the pup's parents and see what others think of the lines. It would be awesome if finding a good dog was easier!

I am really after a companion dog, but I also would like a dog with typical German Shepherd temperament. I do not plan on doing competition sports, but would rather do practical jobs with him like a bit of herding or tracking, or guarding property/farm animals. I do roustabouting and working in the sheep-yards a fair bit. I really, really, do not want a timid dog or a dog that lacks clarity. But yeah, mainly a companion that does random jobs every now and then.

Most working line breeders are using Bruno and I was wondering if it's a good idea to get a pup from him? Does his performance effect the pups he sires?

Are there anymore breeders with good working dogs?

Thats really more genetics at play then training. Most pups wont put on that type of preformance.

The Stig My female is 6 and we started training for our BH late March. We had our second day of protection training over the weekend, and she is happy to represent Team OldDogsCanLearnNewTricks.

(edit: mine is a (WG)Showline as well)

Colie CVT That's awesome. The only part of sport that I've managed to convince Leia is fun is the protection lol. Really wish I'd had her from a puppy, but she is all around a really good dog. I figured it would throw a different variable into the mix talking about nerves, since she is out of a show kennel rather than working lines. I do well with comparing and contrasting things to learn more. I tend to watch every dog the helper I work with works with. Every one is a little different and his approach is a little different for each of them.

It's really awesome watching dogs in action.
