DOG BREED SURVEY : GSD CLUB ESSEX

THE GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG BREED SURVEY

Need to know more about and think long and hard before taking on the responsibility of owning a dog.!!

The Survey was set up by the GSD Breed Council. It is a detailed examination of any GSD over 18 months by one of a number of very experienced Championship Show Judges. Dog and bitches presented for Survey must have a hip-score of no more than a total of 20 with no more than 12 on one hip. They must also have an elbow score of no more than 1 for a Class 1 or 2 for a class 2. They must have been parentage tested and, in the case of males, haemophilia tested. Apart from the detailed examination of their construction and movement, dogs being surveyed are also given a gun-test.

GSD Club of Essex was a founder member of the GSD Breed Council which was formed in 1986 and the Club hosted the very first Adult Breed Survey 7th April 1991. The Surveyor was Malcolm Griffiths who surveyed 30 dogs, of which some had travelled for many miles to be included in this ground-breaking event.
