It is my opinion ( notice I said opinion not fact or actuality) that GSD are being weaked because we no longer have the need for a super strong working dog. True working homes are few and far between, breeders are breeding for more of a pet/home guardian market or they bred for themselves. Alot of these purchasers have little or no dog experience and are ill equiped to handle a strong working animal. No choice really as in this day of I sue you you sue me, strong dogs are a liability not an asset. In other countries this may not be the case but in North America we have to be aware of this when producing litters. Has zippo to do with female handlers. We all know how I feel about Handler aggressive animals. They should not be bred period. Handler aggression does not mean a hard dog, it means the dog is a dink. German shepherds were bred to work WITH a handler. To me this is a huge temperment fault. In other breeds it doesnt bother me as much as in the GSD.
Excellent post, couldn't agree more.
Here are 2 female handlers that have done well in SchH..
Michaela Knoche and Javir Talka Marda..
Sharon Mehagiva and Sam Beit Haboxer (who I believe were the 2009 WUSV champs)..
