Re: Longhair/Plus coat? Breeding?
He's a longcoat. Why do you want to breed him, anyway? Did he do very well in schutzhund? Has he got a good show rating? Hips and elbows are cleared? Your training director and breeder and several other people very knowledgeable about the breed give you in-depth reasons why he's so much better than other dogs that he should be considered to breed? Just because you have full registration doesn't mean you should breed him.
Heck, seeing that he's a showline, just because his parents and so forth have titles doesn't mean he should be bred. A lot of German showline dogs have their titles handed to them "under the table" or pitifully earned, barely scraping by. If he's one of the few that's getting worked and trialed and truly tested and he proves himself worthy, then it would not be a bad idea to breed him.
Please, if you want to breed, prove he has true GSD temperament by working him and trialing him and testing him. We have way too many dogs being bred that have no business stepping into the gene pool and sadly some of those dogs are titled but still have no business breeding.
