Pictures and diagrams of what correct structure and movement should look like.

Linda has been super to work with(we are in the US which makes shipping a bit more difficult) I was amazed at her prompt response and ease to work with. Can't wait to open my copy...very carefully!

I'm very excited for it, she was extremely nice when I messaged her and gave a great/thorough critique of my boy as well.

I'll be purchasing this (as soon as I have the money) to add it to my GSD book collection. Looks like it's worth the money!

Which 'standard' is the book referring to? AKC?

The pictures show lots of good dogs but a few of them have backs that are far too sloped.

It is only proper for an educational book to have illustrations of dogs that have faults, whether mild or extreme.

Here's a quote from the site:
Quote:
It is absolutely the most detailed and accurate source of information available anywhere. I have put particular focus on the two issues that have most plagued the breed in America and Germany: excess rear angulation and the roach back. No one who studies the material in this book will be in any doubt about what is and isn’t normal structure and gait in a working dog.
And I do not know for certain as I do not have the book yet, but my guess would be the parent club standard. And I could be wrong but from what I've seen the standard itself has not changed much from registry to registry, its the interpretation of that standard that has.

cheers.

Certainly seems worth a read. Any idea on cost?
