|That's gorgeous, that's what every GSD should be able to do! Bet he has correct angulation LOL.|

How do you know the dog is a showline?

|Just a question, is a Showline (in the U.S.) determined by it's color? It seems as though anything other than a Sable or all Black is a classified as a show line.|
What about Malinois? How are they determined to be a Show line or working line, pedigree?
In my mind, color means nothing, being able to work as a GSD or Mal was intended for, and represent the breed standard in the ring is all that matters.

|Just a question, is a Showline (in the U.S.) determined by it's color?|
No, It is determined by the lines behind the dog that created it. Gasp, show line dogs can work in the real world and not all of them are in the show ring for their lives. I do not call my sable show line a working line dog lol

The "shape" of the dogs shouts out "I'm a show line"...

|Actually, I would not be surprised at all if this dog had some "working" blood in there. The "shape" is actually quite similar to working lines, or working/show line crosses.|

|I am just wondering, is it really impossible for a showline dog to work or even to jump as high/long as shown in this picture? There will always be a clarification/verification if it is working or show line.|

No, it's not impossible at all. It mostly depends on the conformation and drive of the individual dog, which seems to vary a great deal with showline, less so IMO with working line (esp. re conformation). I don't think it's possible to guess accurately just by 'looking' whether this is show, show X etc. It certainly impresses me and I would love to know the lines - whatever they are.

|There are any number of CDX, UD,dock diving, and MACH titled showline GSD's. Qualifying for a CDX requires that a dog can clear the broad jump. The length of that broad jump would be about 72" for a dog the size of a GSD. I've seen and owned more than one SL GSD who could have cleared the jump shown in the photo, one was a UD and a Sch3 female. It would have depended on how far back from the jump the dog was allowed to commence to run which we can't tell from the submitted photo. I suspect that many Sch3's could also accomplish that jump. Working or showline;why would that matter?|

Sorry, I posted the above in the wrong thread. Can't delete it, so will post it again in the thread about shoulders.

Perhaps I wasn't clear what I meant when I said 'lines', I meant the bloodlines not whether SL or WL. Though I am interested in SLXWL combinations.

Didn't think otherwise, Abby. I need to learn how to include the message I'm referring to. Wasn't yours!!
