Read the rest but buy this one!

This is an excellent book recommended to me by my dogs breeder. I have read just about all of the GSD books written in the English language (available in my country) and this one is the most complete. She is good at discussing the differences between the German lines and American lines in such a way to be very non biased! Amazing... did not think it could be done. It walks you through the basics right through the more complex aspects of the German Shepherd world. Good stuff! Not just a must read but a must own!!

MAJOR...The best shepherd ever

The German Shepherd Today copyrighr 1974.I raised and trained a wonderful, intelligent, obedient,GS by the name of Major and this book guided me through two rigid years of training for a dog that turned out to be everything that you would want in a pet. From a puppy to an adult the book takes you step by step in raising a very large dog and guiding him to be well manered and obediant. This well written book is right on target in giving the proper guidence.

Good Job Ms Strickland

I am an avid fan of the German Shepherd dog and have a small library of books on the breed. This book holds a place of honor at the top of the stack as one of the most complete breed books I have found. It appears to be an honest appraisal and history of the breed, but with the obvious prejudice of an owner. Her love of her dogs shines through in amost every page. That can easily be fogive. The comparison of the German and American lines is particularly helpful. Ms Strickland's knowledge of the breed and many years of experience are well known and add to the credibility of her work. Good job, we look forward to the next update.

THE one-and-only GSD book

If you ever wanted to buy one book for learning about GSD's, THIS is it. This book teaches you everything you want to know. Those who want to go further into breeding GSD's would also find this book very informative. My GSD's were growing like Sausage dogs and I went against my stupid vet's nutritional advice and followed the nutritional advice in this book. My GSD's are now about the best built dogs in the neighbourhood...what true GSD's should look like. The Authors should write more books like this. A MUST BUY book!

This book is Best Of Breed book on the German Shepherd Dog.

This book doesn't just cover everything about the GermanShepherd Dog that you need to know, it covers it thoroughly andintelligently. In it's THIRD edition it includes all the most current champions here and in Germany. It is as important to the new GSD owner wondering how to raise his new puppy as to the seasoned breeder for research. It even covers training and Winifred Strickland's dog training techniques are classic and will never be 'dated.' Her dogs were top obedience trial champions in the fifties and they are top obedience trail champions today. You cannot do better than to take her advice.It is a mystery why the publisher hasn't put in color photos, when other rather useless 'fluff' books get color photos to sell them to the public. This fine book should be color.But it is way ahead of all the rest in it's content and it is lavishly illustrated with black and white photographs. It is the best out there.
