Great hit! You should get serious in PSA with a dog like that. You would do well especially with your IPO background. A lot of the upper levels are about control. Very nice GSD. There aren't a ton of good ones in the sport...we need more. Again, mostly Malinois dominated.
Thanks SilentDobe, I am always serious in my pursuits, the question is "does Gnash know I'm serious". Just kidding but he likes to take control and make up his own mind, I do not have enough "presense" to get in his head consistently.

Thanks everyone. Jane, I believe no ribs were fractured in this take down, however, the decoy mentioned that he was sore even after 2 days!
Cliffson, I have a question for you as I am not knowledgeable in lines and pedigrees. Gnash is a very dominant and hard dog with high active/forward defense drive, does switch to prey when we want but genetic response is always high active defense. At home he is very social with high protective instinct, does distinguish very clearly between actual threat or non threat. Handlers that have his siblings also report of similar traits. Can you review his pedigree (in sig) and see if the above traits are what you would predict?
My younger dog "Creasy" is the polar opposite. Very high prey drive, we have to work to bring defense out, absolute and strong grips, high social drive, some nervousness around environmental variables. Same question for Creasy, do you see similar traits when you study his pedigree? Sorry for the extensive questions but wanted your opinion.
Nice hit. Jäger is exactly as you described gnash. He loves the suit work also. I'm so pleased with his personality on and off the field that I want my next dog from the same blood. Gnash and Jäger both strongly express Stuka's traits, who strongly expresses Brawnson's traits. We are actually trying to start PSA if we can find enough time and a close enough trial
