- Every breeding German Shepherd Dog in Germany has to have certified healthy hips.
- Every breeding German Shepherd Dog in Germany has to have a Schutzhund or Herding title that assures sound working temperament. Prior to getting a Schutzhund title, every dog must pass a Temperament Test (BH) - a test to verify stable temperament among strangers and traffic, and an obedience test. Every breeding German Shepherd Dog in Germany has to pass an Endurance Test (AD), which includes a 12 mile marathon.
- Every breeding dog has to have a Körung evaluation - where the dog's temperament and structure are thoroughly examined. Körung also includes a courage test. Every dog that is awarded a “V” (Excellent) rating at a show must meet all of the requirements described above and demonstrate excellent structure and movement at a show, along with passing gun-sureness test.
To get a VA rating (Excellent Select) the dog must meet all of the above requirements plus must have at least a SchH 2 title and have outstanding structure. The VA rating is only awarded at the Sieger Show (a yearly national or world championship) where hundreds of German Shepherds compete.
All of these strict requirements have been applied for many generations of dogs by German Shepherd breeders in Germany. This is why we at Elite-K9s only use the best European Imported bloodlines for our breeding program.
