Funny observation I've noticed

So I've been seeing a trend based on GSDs and their owners. Is it me or are GSD owners more attractive than other dog owners?

I mean I can't speak for other dog breeds since most of the dogs that roam where I live are a bunch of mixes, but with the few GSDs I've seen, every single female GSD owner except for one here has a pretty face. A few of them could seriously be models too haha. Most are blonde haired for some reason.

It's not just were I live, some of the dog Instagrams out there have very pretty owners. I imagine that the women on this website are very pretty lol.

I can't really speak for men here, I mean I do know the kind of face that women consider attractive, but I haven't seen an ugly dude with one either.

Just a funny observation, felt like posting this since I've posted too much negativity on here lol.

I highly appreciate the fact that you posted this after liking my photoshoot thread.

I think part of it may be the fact that GSDs are an active dog breed, so they need active owners? Other than that, maybe pretty dogs attract pretty people?

Who knows. But we lady GSD owners are pretty awesome!

This just seems creepy to me. Like not an actually smart or effective way to pay a compliment.

Many owners are nice looking people, but I prefer the GSD owners with solid nerves and a good temperament. I don't like when they snap at me or shy away from me.

There are a few distinct lines of owners, each with diversity in their pedigrees.

Anyone want to take it from here?

I wasn't really trying to be creepy at all, just a simple observation and correlation I've noticed.

I like a civil owner, and protective is okay too, but I don't want one that stares intently and watches my every move like it wants to wear my skin.

I think I have a good temperament, can be opinionated and judgemental sometimes but fairly good temperament. Pretty protective over those I care about haha. As far as nerves go, despite staying calm under pressure I do get nervous and anxious quickly. Idk if I have the right temeprament here in this situation lol.

You may (or may not) have noticed that I will post pictures of my dogs, but never of me? Even on FB and Instagram.
