I thought i would introduce myself so that i may not be a stranger or a lurker :p

I am just new to the breeding of GSD's and working lines especially.. I have owned gsd's since i was 5 years old who was my best companion. Throught my growing years i have always had a dog or cat but the GSD was probably the main breed that would always end up in our home.. My memories of the gsd's were the strong, hardy working dogs that were aloof towards strangers and the most loyalist to their families and this has always remained with me. The old style solid dogs is what i've always loved.

I know i am a small ant here compared to the many of you who i'm sure have been breeding for more then my lifetime, i suppose BUT my dedication is of the same merit. I have wanted to breed and make a difference since i was 13 years old where i have studied pedigrees and type, standard etc..
nearly 4 years ago i began breeding cats and it was then i discovered that my passion for the gsd is stronger then ever.. being a pet owner and 4 years ago have just a small taste of Schutzhund sport.. this is where i have conquered to begin my breeding and working side of the breed.

Sadly life isn't as smooth as we would like and due to other commitments i've put some things on hold.. but i am currently an owner of a registered working line sable bitch who in my eyes has still got some growing to do. I am yet to join with a schutzhund club and well do what many of you can probably do blind folded.

I wish to meet you all and get to know more. I have a tendancy to ask stupid questions so please ignore my ignorance. I hope that this forum is a bit more welcoming the some of the other forums i have come a member of.

Thank you for allowing me to join and i do hope to meet you all.
Cheers
Maxx

welcome. I've asked enough stupid questions to make up for anything decent I've ever had to say myself ;)

maxx--you already have LOTS of company in the "stupid questions" department just from me alone!! ask away--the only truly stupid questions (i think) are the ones you DON"T ask. or at least that's my philosophy :)

So are you saying that it is cold there??? I have heard that Aus. has bans on sports like Sch is this so, or is it regional??
There are no bans on Schutzhund/IPO in Aus.

In some states it is illegal to have your dog trained for Personal Protection unless you hold a Security Licence though.

Jeff J., by that logic, does someone who is trained in martial arts need to register somehow? Ya know, just in case I visit Australia and putting on gloves and shoes is concerned concealing a deadly weapon... :cool:

G'day mate. Good to see some Aussies coming on board. Have you joined a Schutzhund club now that it is more acceptable to train working dogs. The Australian Schutzhund Association has a nice website www.schutzhundaustralia.com
Welcome on this forum.
