I haven't paid enough attention to your posts to begin to answer your question, but even if I had, it's rarely so simple. We do have many people with an obvious broad range of knowledge about dogs in general, GSDs in particular, breeding practices, training techniques, nutrition and health, competition in a sport, but we also have many people who know a lot about one or more of these subjects, but are not expert at all of them. It's usually pretty easy to tell when someone knows what they're talking about and when they don't.So when it comes to dogs and GSDs, what level does it appear I am on? Level like Beginner, Amatuer, Novice, Expert, etc.
What I try to do is read and learn in the threads where I don't have a lot of personal experience, and to answer questions in the threads where I do. That doesn't necessarily mean I'm an expert at whatever topic I'm responding to, but I can at least share what has and has not worked for me.
