Smile Critique my Chief - I'm just curious

He's my Seizure alert dog, my love and my pride and joy but I thought it would be a kick to see what the professionals thought

He turned 5 months old yesterday, lost his first tooth last night and weighed in at 58 pounds this morning! He's got the most confident temperment of any dog I've even owned ....
Sorry about the pix.... I'm not the best photographer but I'm trying

One of the most gorgeous faces I have seen on a GSD. Very masculine. One thing-- he does look a tad thicker. Nothing to worry about right now, but as he gets older, extra weight can be hard on his hips. I don't know his breeding, but if both of his parents weren't OFA certified, just be careful about letting him get heavy.

Anyways, I love his coloring! Are you training him yourself or going through a company? I have never really learned about how dogs are trained for things like that so if you would like to share I would love to hear!

Thank you so much
Believe it or not most of that thick is loose skin....he flaps when he runs LOL but I do know his grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, brothes, sisters and I know a couple of people who have dogs from the same line and all healthy. Chief will be in to be tested as soon as he is old enough (2years right?), but so far all is looking good and strong
I'm being really careful about his diet as I am so OCD about things like that He is fed TOTW and RAW with a carrot,salmon oil, beet etc.. combo I mix myself.
He's to be taken the place of my current seizure dog, a Boston Terrier and I'm owner training him. He's doing great with obedience and he seems to be picking up the alerting on his own - he's doing awesome!

That is amazing! I hate that people always expect service dogs to be huge. There are many smaller dogs that are just as handy if not more!

I wasn't sure if he was larger or it was just the angle because he looked normal in all the other pics, thanks for clearing it up! (And yeah, its two years!)

Thank you so much...The breeder takes a lot of pride in the coloring. I have pix of his parents actually in our album.
