Is this a good pedigree? First two pics are dad’s parents and their trees. Last two pics is mom’s size and trees. I have attached a pedigree of moms side where it is plank in the pics. “Grande Finale” will be the mom of the pup.

Is your dog from Royalair? Because they are pretty upfront that their dogs are not working dogs.
Has the lines. I’m not trying to schuztland training or anything haha I’m just trying to get assistance dogs out of a potential pairing. I want to help the disabled in that way.

Well her is my 2 cents, take it for what its worth. I like Royalair dogs, not necessarily as GSD's but they have maintained a pretty solid track record with health over the years and know their lines. I have seen some issues pop up in the last few years with unsatisfied buyers and a trend to early testing of hips and elbows developing.
However if I wanted a Royalair dog I would still go to the source, because they know the dogs best.

If you are asking these questions with the intent of breeding then you really have no business breeding. Go train dogs and find out what a service dog needs to be instead of asking online about mish mashed lines. Selling the disabled poorly bred dogs isn't going to help them.

Many a good service dogs are not purebreds at all, some left over from breeding’s and a lot come from the pound- it’s all about the dog's own mentality/nature. Volinteer with service dogs/trainers and Good luck.

I have never seen a dog from this kennel, but their website is full of misinformation and salesmanship. The early GSDs were actually smaller, not oversized. They were more similar to a Malinois in structure. There was a point early in the breed when certain lines started to become oversized and von Stephanitz intervened to correct that. They emphasize physical appearance and are selling a brand, not a working dog. Regarding titles in the pedigree you posted, I only see two Good Canine Citizenship Awards, which are not really titles and are very basic assessments of a dog's temperament.

Alright in no way did I want to start a bash session about a breeder. I was trying to get insight on temperament. This breeder raises dogs that are out of standard because they are considered over-sized. I don’t not care about that. I care about the health and longevity of the dog and the breeder you are bashing has proven that that is what is important to her and is also what is important to me. Have a good day!
