Maybe there's more to come in other magazines?
I would recommend not to drink coffee until you have read all of the magazines!

Evil grin!

In my opinion the Spiegel has lost it's reputation a long time ago...I stopped reading it in the 90's because of increasing sensationalizm rather than well researched facts...

What particularly and factually, you do not like about the article? Besides that Curry is promoting himself and the article is badly written.
Factually the GSD is loosing to Malionois  even so good GSD is multiple times better dog for any police work then malinois.
The operant word here is good. Most PDs do not want to pay for "good" GSD.
The problem for this is on more then one level. I call Malinois McDonalds dog. Quick to work but limited in abilities. That is another one reason  why PDs are using Malis.
 There are still many good GSDs available. And many PDs just do not know where to look or do not want to pay. ( Even so prices of Good GSDs are coming down due to the competition.)   Most dealers buy crap GSDs in Europe and sell it to PDs here and that is the part of the problem. Such dogs  do  disappoint.
Any police officer who enjoys better type of dog  can still get and always will be able to get good GSD.

Wayne is talking to German magazine . He does not need promotion in Germany. The only promotion he is getting is from people like you on forum like this one.
Also what is wrong with him promoting himself? I do not necessarily agree with  many things he does, but how he promotes himself is not one of them.

I'll be honest and say the article didn't offend me either.  There is a lot of truth to what he says.

From what I've seen, PD's using Malis have problems getting them to stand down after the arrest. As to why it is hard to find suitable GSD's, ask the breeders who'd rather breed sport dogs than a more difficult and uncertain to train and attain civil dog. I like civil dogs because they being threat driven they stand down upon neutralization of the perceived threat. I also like Mr. Curry and his dogs and have no issue with most of what he said.

Great post Hans! I have worked / trained PSDs now 30 years and all my partners were GSDs. The malinois is an overated hype! The amount of handlers taken to the ER, ones that will not out, or stand off when a subject surrenders is phenominal. Breaking and engaging the quarry sometimes the handler during the search are just a few of the problems I have dealt with training this breed over the years on a continuous basis. I'm stopping here before I start a riot! LMAO

If you have seen the Seal Team dogs, it is kind of hard to argue with the abilities of a good Malinois.
