    This is my understanding of it. The showers have been bred to strech out with more "slant", but workers are more upright cause it helps with their movement.

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    GSDs - I am busy working Rufus up to trials so I don't know what I will do with this girl if anything. She will get a basic runthrough in obedience when he goes up to the next classes (later time) but otherwise - I dunno. She may end up with mum in the end.

    I have seen a working line shep at work - and their movement is DIFFERENT. It is stronger in the sense of power but weaker in the sense of scope. They dont cover as much ground as a show shep.

    NEITHER is particularly well bred in Australia

    This I will agree with... but we could do worse. I have seen some show sheps from england, their hocks are so short they can hardly move It is sad when fashon ruins a good breed

    AF, you get what is commonly reknown as the "Old Style GSD" and the modern GSD as we see it today.
    The old style is usually bigger boned, far more substantial body-wise, and their top-lines (backs) are not slanted or tapering downwards anywhere near as much as the others. They usually do not drop so much in the hocks also because of their top-line. Many ppl today still believe that the old style GSD has a slightly more stable and laid-back temperament,with a more gentle nature particularly those of the long-haired variety.

    The modern day GSD (for want of a better word) is reknown in slang terms as "the roach back."
    Quite point blank the battle between roach backs and old style has been going like forever, with a slow trend of many ppl returning to the old style GSD.

    It will be interesting to see what she does when you give her a run through. Keep me posted will ya ??
