World Dog Show GSD BOB

I believe BOB means this is the winning GSD at the World Dog Show last weekend.

YES V. LEITHAWALD

So, what do you all think? He's bigger than I would have expected. I guess I see too many American dogs.

Oh, gotcha. I couldn't find a Koer report or a picture of him standing with a person.

I think the North America is the only place where Am lines do well in shows. In Europe and other parts of the world, the "show" GSDs are WGSL.

So sad to see those Akita heads and frog rears. Where has the functionality gone?

I despise the term frog rear for so many reasons. The biggest reason is that a frog's legs come up alongside it's body. It's not even physically possible.

I'm not big on the coarse heads, don't have much problem with most of the rears.

I hadn't heard the description "Akita head" before, but now that you point it out, that dog's head does look like a purebred Akita's more than my actual Akita mix's does. Go figure.

I don't have anything else to say about it though. I never know what I'm supposed to be looking at in show dogs.

Everyone's perspective is different....

I love big heads....and this is called a "stallion type"...personally I still prefer the working line type, tending a bit towards the DDR style, bigger head, more substance....don't like long necks, angulation or roach backs....or slight bone or narrow bodies...

Functionality - form follows function.....the types are descriptive enough to figure that out.

Function also follows form. They can't take a full stride in the rear. The rear is so low that the weight is thrown back on it. Try walking around on bent knees for a while. Try riding a bicycle with the seat all the way down.
