    Does it say when their meetings are on? Just show up and introduce yourself.

    Do make sure that they are meeting on the night you plan to show. My dog club stops over December and January - because the weather is too hot most of the time and everyone goes away on holidays anyway.

    Interesting thread just came up on specialistcanine.com - where would you buy your next german shepherd puppy. May be worth a look.

    Specialist shepherd shows are not exempt from the extreme types, that are often referred to as "Specialty Shepherds". What I see at shows gives me the horrors - and they are regularly awarded.

    This video shows some extreme movement slowed down. This movement is far too familiar for those of us that frequent dog shows. I wonder how some of them stay upright.

    Like with any breed there are good and bad breeders out there. Make sure you see the parents and other stock and are satisfied with the way they look and move.

    This one appears lovely, and looks very different. But when you slow it down the rear feet are reaching past the front, one to the inside and one to the outside. I have no idea why but would think it could be due to some imbalance or misalignment somewhere.

    The son's Shepard is not close to this and looking at that I am so glad.
    but if the people who bred him keep going I could easily see this happening.
    As they have got the start to this horrible look.

    To the video of them it was an eye opener and being in slow motion you could see their gait.
    So bad I think, and then in I think mode again I can see leg troubles down the track with them being bred like that.
    The slow motion makes it look bad, and this is a yes to that.
    Though in slow motion you are actually seeing them for what they are.
    And I hope this dos get stamped out way quicker than it has to get them like this.
    These dog breeders have no place in the breeding world in my book.

    Like I am not a fan of Don Burke but I like what he was trying to do with the Bulldog.
    I know I migh come under fire for this one, but it is my opinion.

    DVD trailer - Tongue to Tail - The Integrated Movement of the Dog - YouTube

    Above is an ad for a dvd on dog movement but it's fun to watch.

    I don't know if the second gsd video with the back feet (or front feet) tracking slightly differently on each side is a problem or not - I don't speak enough german. But it could be a sort of turning or leading away from the camera... ie if they filmed the dog from the other side - would the feet tracking change?

    PS I'm not sure if I'd look at a fat lab to see what "normal dog movement" looks like though that particular one looks ok. Not like some at the park this morning.
