|The dynamics of the breed are again changing in the US. For the past few years the German Import was suppressed as the euro exchange rate and overall US economy had an effect on Importing. I'm not sure the US economy has rebounded but there have been some dips in the exchange rates that created opportunities for the US to compete with other countries for some of the top specimens.|
This year we see a return to the level of competition and quality that existed a decade ago with some twists. I recall the 2002 USA sieger show where the females on the podium were all top 15 V rated at the German Sieger Show. This year should be no different. There are many more Imports this year compared to last. I think I've picked out a German VA female, top 10 V, and two in the top 30 V that were top 15 SG at the German Sieger Show. There are also some accomplished North American bred females that will be peppered throughout the class. It's going to be a competitive class and the competitors are going to have to bring their A game to the show.

|Dog1, are you talking about a female you saw recently.|
by Dog1 on 26 April 2012 - 16:05
I think it will be a very exciting show this year. I hope to see you again at a sieger show.
A little behind the scene history. Elle and Enzo are both Rallhaus dogs. The breeding was a rare combination of genetics. It's a linebreeding on one of the few dogs that have demonstrated the ability to produce working ability in the conformation lines. The litter was planned and executed with performance in mind.
From the inception two excellent trainers were interested in the combination and as expected the litter produced the working ability many feel are lacking in the conformation lines. (Actually the working ability is somewhat abundant. It's just that people don't bother to seek it, they would rather accept that it's not there and go with that, it's much easier to complain than act. Same goes for the V rated working dogs.)
The pups are linebred 4-2 on Yello vom St. Michaels-Berg through the Father WUSV World Universal Sieger Champion VA Zambo Reidschlurgi and the mother VA Honey vom Finkenschlag, sister to VA Nando Gollerweiher. Honey won the top performance award at the 2011 NASS.
Performance combination from two VA Parents that come from top 10 world producing genetics is the stuff true 'World Class' litters are produced from.
Below is a picture of Elle who I predict will be a dog to be reckoned with in the future. Keep your eyes on this girl and watch her rise to the top. I believe she will be one of if not the best ever from Zambo

Not sure which female. I've seen quite a few recently. Recent events have given the US an influx of new blood and the working female class is a great place to look for the future.
I see a few other stories in the show.

|Dog1,,I corrected my post above I meant to say Randy's crew,,not Rik..I wouldn't mind seeing Rik's crew lol, but I am not sure if I ever met Rik,, ;) How is that little sable male doing??,,,,|
Thanks for the above post !!. I remember hearing about this litter..,,I am excited to see how Elle and Enzo will do,,I actually loved their sire Zambo last year at the NASS he was my favorites and the dam Honey caught my eye as she was quite pretty..:) I think Honey was pregnant with Elli and Enzo at the time.???..Elli is a super looking gal!!,,
Is Honey owned by Sitasmom??,,It is hard keeping all this straight..Any repeat litters..;)

Little sable male Timo you liked so much is entered in the show. I saw him a week ago and he's severely out of coat but is still stunning. He outgrew some puppy flaws and if he grows some hair. I think he's a contender again this year. His sable sister is entered too.
Honey was pregnant at the NASS. She is due back in season anytime. Plan is to stay on the performance side and stick with the line through Enzo.
Big crew again this year. Feel free to join us. 18 or so entered. 4 in the working classes. Some are returning to competition from the NASS, others returning from having been away a couple years. Some are not able to make it. For 30% of our group, it will be their first show.

There are 8 progeny groups! That's a serious turn out. Look at what that means. There are 8 males that are developing groups across the country. That's 8 groups of people coming together, working together, putting it together and taking it to a National Show. The movement to change the type of sieger show from a 'dog on the day' show to a 'breed show' as it is in Germany continues.
For anyone that wants to be involved in German Shepherds. Involvement in a group developing a male is where the best opportunity exists. The best offspring, the best resources, the best opportunity to save the most money on what is becoming a very expensive hobby. Need some explainations or examples? Just post it here and I'll elaborate.
Total of 4 dogs in the running for Universal Sieger. Space on the team for 3. Who will make it this year?
Mother vs. Daughter competition in the working class. Mother is well placed in Germany. Mother's sister is VA rated. Daughter is from VA1 Ober Bad Boll and top 3 in the youth class at the Austrian Sieger Show.
Duel in the puppy classes for future Universal competitors! That's right. The next generation of Universal competitors has been selected by teams that were very successful at the world level last year. They are going for it again this year in Slovenia with their current working dogs and have selected some prospects for the Universal competion in the future.
Both teams are accomplished. Both teams have already placed high, (top 5) at the World Level. Both teams are beginning with the next generation and they have entries in the puppy classes. All prospects are from conformation lines. All future candidates are from the dogs identified on this website as having the ability to pass on working ability. Some puppies are linebreed on one of the dogs identified. Another is a combination of two of the best. The future starts here.
