Titling allows you to have proof that your dog is WORTH breeding.

Titling can be a conformation title - like Champion. That means that several knowledgeable people felt your dogs was a good representative of the breed.

Titling can be sports titles - like obedience, herding or others. These titles proves your dog has the intelligence and drive to do the work a well-bred German Shepherd should be able to do.

My 4 month old female was humping my fixed male just this morning. Isn't it just a dominance thing?

I think it's just a dog thing, lol. My least dominant dog (neutered male mix) is the one that humps. He's pretty laid back and soft, not dominant.

You could go back to your breeder and ask them. If they really like your female, they'd be very happy to have you title her.

Smile Black scab on head?

Im really worried I found a black scab on my dogs head, it looks like a mole but it just came within the last few days, it doesnt seem to bother her, like shes not scratching. I looked at it close and it looks like a black mole but feels scabby? Could it be serious?? has anyone else had this problem?

At any given time my GSD probably has half a dozen black scabs on him. Usually from playing rough with other dogs and getting a scrape or puncture, a few times from itching too hard, a few from where I pull a tick off. It would be rare for me NOT to find a small scab somewhere on his body.

Ask your breeder why she thinks breeding your dog is a good idea. If you like her answer and want to go through with it go for it. If not spay the bitch. Don't take whats said on an internet forum as gospel. Many breeders know their lines enough to determine if they want pups out of a dog before its titled or not.
