Re: Show potinual

No, I don't think that your dog would do very well in the show ring. But the best way to find out is to show her.

Re: Show potinual

I have to agree with the No. She has no angulation. Looks like a very nice pet though.

Re: Show potential?

You may want to look at the dogs that are winning in the show rings so you can get a better visual to compare your dog to them. If you can find a trial in your area, be fun to go watch and talk to the owners/handlers as well.

2005 Grand Victor Ch. Wayside's Honky Tonk Man ROM


2005 Grand Victrix Ch. Falcon's Welove Liberty


GSDCA Reviewed (click here) has tons of info with photos to compare over the years.

Keep in mind, there's more than looks to our GSD's and many of us avoid the conformation ring entirely to use our dogs BRAINS and athletic abilities! So obedience, rally, agility, herding, tracking....so many other things we can do with our dogs.

Re: Show potential?

I would agree with the no's. She is a lovely dog, and any lack of show potential has no bearing on her value to you as a beloved pet or member of your family. If you do want to participate in activities with her and show in obedience or agility, get busy!

Maggie thanks i may try tracking cause my dog has a lot of brains and good on the athletic abilities she can turn on a dime she has a good trot she also has a realy fast run i think tracking would be good because she allways has her nose on the gound anyways she is over 24 inchs and she is under 25 inchs that would also hurt her wining in show she also 85 pounds and has a medium to high pray drive well thank you all

Re: Show potential?

shepherd11112, most important thing is to ask around and find a great training place for agility in your area. That way the equipment is there and you'll be learning the right way. The site I showed with all the playground equipment and all is a wonderful way to socialize and supplement............but you do need the 'real' stuff!

And as long as your dog is over 6 months and you have a good trainer who knows to wait until the dogs growth plates are closed before jumping full height, you can start up. There's alot to agility that you can start early with.

If you live in the northern NJ area (you may want to add your GENERAL location to your profile so it shows up by your avatar) I can send you to a bunch of different training options ( http://www.thek9campus.com/ ).

What's also neat is starting up with some general obedience first. You will need a 'sit', a 'down', a 'wait/stay' and a good offleash 'come'. And all that in a room full of dogs/people and distractions!

Here's a good site with general info:

and you may be able to find a place to train by using this site:
