The best of breed for german shepherds for 2011 is GCH Can GVX Sel Winsome's Love Remembears . What a beautiful moving bitch its too bad it was such a small ring, seen her two years in a row at the canadian nationals in kitchener . Congrats to her owners

I'm not the one to critique, but coming from a show line lover, I wasn't too impressed. I tend to favor the german show lines more, but there are some american/canadian line dogs that I like too.

Something about that gate didn't seem right. Kind of like that video going around about pedigree dogs. This dog just seemed a little too much (half dog / half frog type thing going on) - didn't seem to really flow like a GSD should.

I watched the GSD and was wondering if that gait is something that's trained or is it natural?

Lovie looked lovely. Clean coming and going. Suspended and flowing in movement even in the small space.

She is a Canadian GVX and was Select 2 US National.

I know the dogs are extreme by many people's standards. But, they are much better than the bad fad of some years ago. Hocks were moving straight. I saw one who was standing a bit cow-hocked. Males masculine looking too.

It is a natural gait. They do have be trained how to do in the ring, but the movement of the dog is what displys the conformation and is not trained.

Does anyone have a link for her? I googled and all that came up was that topic. No pics whatsoever of her nor any videos.

Same here... I couldn't find much in terms of pictures. Found info on other shows she was entered in, but that was about it.

Those are supposed to be "best of the breed" ?

I didn't want to be the first to insult the poor dog but I agree. I don't see what makes that dog the "best".
It's a nice looking dog but I don't see what sets it apart from other GSDs.
