Q. I'm wondering, as a fellow GSD owner, what you think of my long haired GSD that I have been showing.
Hi there. A friend of mine at work gave me the link to your web site. I have a long coated shepherd myself. He's 16 months old right now. I also have a black and tan standard coat, and a white shepherd. Chaos, our long coated shepherd is one of the best GSD's that I have ever owned. He is also my first ever show dog. I started showing him the end of April and he finished for his championship 2 days under a year old. We are now going for his grand, which seems to be a lot harder than it was going for his championship. When I started showing him, I had never stacked him in my life, nor one of my other GSD's. At our first show was our first time attempting it. The judges told me that I needed to work on it, so I have, and he's getting quite well at it. I have included a picture of his latest stack and was hoping that your could critique him for me. I am always interested in what other GSD owners have to say about him, whether they like him or not. I found your site very interesting, and enjoyed it. I hope you don't mind me contacting you. Thanks for any advice you can give me on him etc. Anna and Chaos.

A. Looks like a nice dog. We breed and deal with working line dogs specifically, so I don’t have any advice for you on showing but I am of the opinion that if you are spending time with your dog and you both are enjoying yourselves then it’s time well spent!

Thanks for writing,
Cindy Rhodes

Every new puppy owner has the same image of what they want their new dog to be like as an adult. First and foremost, everyone wants a great relationship with their dog but beyond that, those who plan on keeping their dog in their home want a calm, well-mannered, obedient house dog that minds and respects their family and friends. Those who plan on keeping their dog outside want a calm well mannered dog that is respectful to the family and is quiet in the yard or kennel. They only want their dog to bark at strangers that come near the home. New dog owners think the road to success only involves obedience training and house training new puppies. Well that is the old wives tale that is been spread for 100 years and nothing could be further from the truth.
