Germany's Sheep Herding Trials
-2008201-0 -- 1 Hour, 23 Minutes, 10 Seconds
The German Shepherd Dog Club of West Germany (SV) sponsors a small but active group of people (about 5,000) who train their dogs to herd sheep.
They have a final competition (Bundesleistungshuten) at the end of every year. This video was filmed in Asslar, West Germany. It is a documentary that explains what exercises are in the competition and how they are scored.
The video is a fascinating tape, it's well edited with beautiful photography. This is the video that shows where the name German Shepherd comes from.
The image quality of this streaming video is nowhere near the quality it was when it was originally filmed. It is also nowhere near the quality of our current Leerburg training DVDs.
Many of the older dog shows and competitions were not encoded into a computer format until the video tapes were 20 to 25 years old. Over the years, the image quality of video tape deteriorates. These older dog shows are being offered for their historical significance. That's why we are streaming videos for its current price which originally sold for up to $100.00.
These videos are no longer offered on DVDs.
