The SV has been fully aware and a participant in this development for the last 20 years when they catered to show , the enormous economic boon, separated the BSP to another venue and schedule , and excluded the police dog trials.
"The SV will have to accept that German Shepherd breeding will no longer be according to a working standards, but just show breeding like any other candy ass breed,"
hey - I said candy-butt in another thread - essentially agree with this . It is the loss of distinct breed characteristics we see in many breeds . Seems like a movement towards one common basic dog-unit with interchangeable exterior appearance . All dogs act the same , only look different.
There is a video that I have posted a few times https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O39-KcW60fs
which says exactly this , that the SV is complicit , smugly supporting marginal at best dogs being sold for large , very large sums to foreign buyers anxious to belong to the GSD community .
The narrator is critical of the dogs shown performing Sch H
routine , with a decoy that was not at all a force to overcome -- a playmate more or less , and even then the dogs lacked security.
The video also addresses the difficulty with police agencies getting sound GSD for work - with interviews from trainers and handlers .
The video addresses problems which are crippling which are not DM and not hip dysplasia -- spinal problems possibly linked to intense inbreeding.
Good GSD will come out of non-SV countries if this continues .
