As a GSD enthusiast, I spent over 15 years in the breed before breeding my first litter. The following is a list of my qualifications in the breed, dogs and the sport of schutzhund:
I have only ever owned one breed of dog, The German Shepherd Dog. My knowledge of the breed has grown exponentially since purchasing my first GSD (Tighe - pronounced "Tie") in 1999 and my expectation of the breed has also grown to the point where I am dismayed by what most breeders are passing off as a well bred GSD. I have strong views about following the SV breeding system and passionate views about backyard and/or bad breeding practices and those trying to destroy the breed I love.
I breed for myself, and I want a puppy that is bred to the highest possible standards
