|Hi, sorry if previous message read like a book! I'll try again.|
Here is a link to my dogs bloodlines http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/german_shepherd_dog/dog.html?id=752458 Can anyone tell what is predominant - work or show

|There's nothing to really tell you. The first 2 and part of the third generation aren't titled, no pictures, no comments, no hip scores, nothing. If you take Eloy on the dam side you get Zamp/Quanto, so that's show. If you take Optikas on the sire side you get Belshik/Troll, which is working. As for all the other factor dogs in it, I couldn't tell you. Looks like you have a mix of both lines. Hope this helps!|

|Like Macrowe said, not enough information up close to tell you much.|
On the mother's side, three generations back there was a working line male in SG Optikas Dark and he was bred to Westmids Viktoria who, given her pedigree looks to be showline.
On the father's side is showline.
So looking back at the dogs further back in the pedigree your dog is mostly mostly showline.

the mothers side are mostly Police dogs, I think Westmids Viktoria comes from West Midlands Police and Wypol is West Yorkshire so they should be o.k. If you go further back to 6 generations, you can see plenty of SCH3 and V1 as well as champions on both sides, so I was hoping someone would look further back as I know that the last few generations were just for breeding

|Majority of your dogs pedigree contains showline, even Westmid Viktoria is showline, the working strength come from Optikas Dark, Where are you in the UK|

|The dad's side is showline. The top of the mom's side has working line(starting 4th generation) and the bottom seems to be showline. (I did 6 gens back from each parent and there were some blanks as well, which is why I say "seems" since the blanks could be anything.)|

|Hi, yes, I know about the blanks and have now filled a lot of them in. Mostly of the Scottish dogs. I am working on the rest. The one I have most problem with is the guidewell as it is stated own breeding. I am drawing a blank with these and am relying on someone with knowledge of the guidewell dogs and a good memory to help there!|
