I would imagine 1% or less. Think about it...GSD's are one of the most popular breeds in country. I live in a city with a population of about 250,000.....500,000 for the entire county............and there are THREE of us in the county that do SchH (in another county altogether!)....and I've probably seen 50 to 100 GSD's in my area between rescue work, people I meet with GSD's, and going to the OB clubs...........so there must be way more than that in households.

It used to be that AKC published stats on numbers of litters registered, number of dogs registered....when GSDs were in 4th place, there were 49,000 litters...........about 120,000 individual registrations.....I remember this because of doing the math for the GSD linked revenue for AKC....

49000 litters. Average 5 pups a litter. 250,000 GSDs bred in one year....less than half were advanced to individual registration. Pet people don't send them in often.....Figure what - to be generous maybe 250-300 breeders of Euro show/working dogs in the US.....even at 5 litters per year average - 1500 out of 49,000 litters - the rest - yes BYB/Commercial puppy mills and another small percentage of ASL.....

There are maybe 300 IPO clubs in three organizations - DVG, USCA and GSDCA-WDA....from trial results, there are alot of US Kennel names listed....probably a third of the total - so still alot of imported dogs in the sport....but the US kennel names are showing up more and more.... One thing is that many more experienced and competitive people import young started dogs and do not want to raise puppies....few American breeders routinely grow out pups to sell for the sport...

My dogs are not too big, too agressive, and too unruly to take out. I have 5 acres and I keep them home for their own protection. I can't walk in this area too many lose dogs and coyotes. When we do take them out is somewhere away from people and dogs, not places where we will run into others not because I'm afraid of how my dogs will react but because of how others react when they see my dogs.
