So when i got my dog the breeder told me he was a working showline at the time I didn’t really know anything about gsd but after a few reads on here I understand its either showline or working line so i am a little confused. I have his pedigree but all his ancestors are from other countries so i dont think it would show on his akc pedigree if they have any champions or titles is there any database where i can find this out?

What would You like to know about your pedigree?
I dont really know how to read it and what it means but its my understanding if any titles where won in other countries it wont show on here? I just wanna know if theres any titles won in certain activities to see if i can train my dog in that to see if hes a natural at it. Want to know if he has any bred traits

The word von and vom mean from in German indicates which kennel the dog is from. An AKC pedigree on a foreign dog is sometimes difficult to follow. The dogs with an SZ number are dogs registered through the SV in Germany.

With the dogs in part of his pedigree they are from Mexico.. there are some good working showlines in the dog’s pedigree, meaning they are dogs which know how to do Schutzhund work. In Germany in order to be able to breed a dog the dog must have obtained a working title and a show rating.

The male Atos aus Agrigento was a VA dog, SchH 3 breed survey for life, HD/ED normal his ZW is 86 and he was 66.2cm tall this height is now over the standard as it was changed to 65cm as maximum height for males.. he is registered through the SV. He was the VA 1 dog at the Bundesieger in 2014 and VA 4 in the Netherlands Sieger Show.. he also had a lot of very good V ratings.. if you’d like more info on the pedigree let me know this is just one of the dogs. Karat’s Ulk was from Denmark

He has a lot of foreign dogs in the back of his pedigree as well as German dogs.. I don’t know a lot about the Mexico dogs. The V ratings are conformation shows and they can be at the regional or state levels these are known as LG or OG shows. The VA1 is the highest honor at the BSZS the largest German Shepherd show in the world. In order to get the VA the dog must have completed Obedience, Tracking and Protection and at the Sieger Show they are tested on the obedience and protection work

From what I see he has more German dogs and I don‘t see American lines per say

Also the links that are for the pedigree database are more accurate for information about where the dogs in his pedigree are from and what titles they’ve earned
