Hey guys, i'm pretty new here and i own a female german shepherd that i've bought when i was about 14 years old. Back in my country my dad owned 2 GSD, but we really didnt know about pedigree and bloodlines and all that cool stuff. Anyways i'm really getting into these but these pedigree reading it's driving me crazy. Can some one give me a brake down of a simple pedigree table? Oh and do the police dogs have pedigrees? I g/f's mom has a friend that work at the police and he could get me another dog. Thanks for your time.

There is no breed of Police Dog. All dogs have a pedigree, it`s their family tree. By looking at the kennel names associated with the parents, grand, great and great great grandparents one can tell what type of lines and breeding was done. Most pedigrees will list titles of the dogs both show and working. That`s kind of a simple explanation but if you post a pedigree there are those here with tons of experience that can break it down for you.

you can use my boys pedigree- http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/gsd/pedigree/550799.html

The table is easy to read when you know what you are looking at.

If you look at the first two dogs on the left they are the parents of my GSD. Next if you look at the top dog "Amigo" (my GSD's father) it shows two dogs leading into his picture, "Pakros" and "Janara" they are Amigo's parents. You can also see the next generation back. "Bax" and "Karma" are Pakros's parents and also one set of my GSD's great grandparents.

Hope this helps!

Some police K9s are registered (and therefore their pedigree is known), some are not registered and their pedigree may or may not be known.

No problem, we all started somewhere


Linebreeding is a fancy way of saying inbreeding.
5-5 means that VA1 Lasso von Neuen Burg is in the 5th generation back on the mothers side and also the 5th generation back on the fathers side.
It isn't a problem from a genetic standpoint unless they are closer than 3 dogs back (even then people will have their own opinions about that)

SchH3 is a title in schutzhund that Amigo has earned in a trial (it's the highest level in schutzhund)

2004 was the year he was born

DN9749103 is Amigo's registration number- unique to him

HD-SV: HD a-normal (a1) means that he had x-rays done and evaluated in Germany by the SV and given an 'a' stamp (his hips and elbows are good- no problems) this is important because dysplasia is genetic.

The V in front of Amigo's name means that he has been shown. V is a conformation show rating, V= excellent

This website can explain more about the genetics if you are interested.

The 'rabbit hole' goes pretty deep in the GSD world!!

Here is another good resource:

Good Luck!
