This beautifully shot and edited third production in the series explains how to show your German Shepherd successfully. This title begins by detailing the judging routine inside the ring from the judges perspective. Only from understanding what the judge is trying to see in the ring can the handler efficiently show the dog. Because the culture of the german ring is unique, interview footage with professional german handlers Klaus Pasch and Walter Kötters is interspersed.
The Basic Training section guides the viewer through the mindset of the competitive show dog owner discussing housing, interaction, early socialization and the various stages of preparation of the show dog from neutralizing the dog to the physical examination and gunfire to successfully teaching the dog to stack and stand.
