I know VP is Very Promising and is only awarded to dogs under 18 months.
What is VP6 and VP4? Which ones better??? Also where can I look up winners by the year? I tried GSDCA and couldn’t find the dog I was looking for? If it’s under 18 months can I find those records ?

This may help you. Tommy in Denmark has an online GSD database, You can look at it
rhis URL has already selected SHOW EVENTS.
Now you have to narrow the search for USA SIEGER SHOWS
You do this by entering *USA Sieger* in the show description box at the top. You must include the asterisks.
You can then choose shows from 1990-2016
You can also find Show results on https://www.working-dog.com/

VP4 would be the higher ranking. There have traditionally been 2 Siegers in the U.S., the GSDCA and UScA.
an SV judge can award any designation he sees in the young dog, VP being the highest and VP4 is higher than VP6, but in most instances, I doubt there is any noticeable differences. also, the judge may not award any VP if he doesn't feel any deserve it.
and, also, there are some very, very nice structure GSD who only get a G (good} or VG (very good), mainly because they are not the correct color or pedigree or ownerr. it's all subjective.
maybe you can do a google search on the dog and if the show was recorded online it may show up.
