German Shepherds are good-natured, all-purpose workers. Their intelligence, alertness, courage, and loyalty have earned them roles as guard dogs, guide dogs, search and rescue dogs, and attentive family dogs.

These are the five main types of German Shepherds:

  • American Show Line German Shepherds

  • West Show Line German Shepherds

  • West Working Line German Shepherds

  • East Working Line DDR German Shepherds

  • Czech Working Line German Shepherds

Difference Between Show Line GSDs vs Working Line GSDs

  • Show Line German Shepherds as from their name "Show Line" are used for dog shows. In order to look excellent, these GSDs have to be perfect like their teeth have to be lineup perfectly, their ears have to be lineup, their hair should be proper, their length should be perfect, their height should be perfect, their weight should be perfect, angles of their bones should be perfect because the show always look for the perfect physical German Shepherds. Show Line GSDs have an angulated back that slopes from high to low as you go from shoulders to rear end. 

  • Working Line German Shepherds have straight back and athletic type of figure, purely built to work all the time tirelessly. They have bigger heads & bigger bones. The Working Line German Shepherds don't need to be perfect. Their tail just not need to be in the right angulation. The Working Line GSDs as clearly evident from their name "Working Line", always ready for work, work and work. They tend to always be active.

Erra is one of the top females in the world.  She is a once-in-a-life time kind of dog.  She has earned almost every working title possible, and all before the age of 3!  Add in the fact that she raised a litter of puppies in between there and she's truly a one in a million kind of dog.  Very, very few dogs in the world have accomplished what she has in such a short amount of time.  It goes to show the level of her athleticism, intelligence, desire to please, and natural ability.  Erra has earned both her IPO3 and Zvv3, (the highest titles possible) consisting of tracking, off leash obedience, and protection.  Her scores are consistently very high.  She has also earned her FH1 & 2 titles, (advanced and superior tracking titles) again, the highest titles possible in tracking.  On top of that, she has earned her FPr1, 2 & 3, once again the highest, most advanced tracking titles possible under the Czech Republic system!  She loves to track, and has extreme hunt drive - she will not quit.

 

On top of it all, Erra is an extreme black sable and is absolutely gorgeous!  She has perfect conformation, heavy bone, and a beautiful head.  She is the ideal weight for a working female, at 75 lbs. 

Erra is also DM clear and can never produce a puppy with degenerative myelopathy!

 

Erra's pedigree is outstanding, and without a doubt, contributes to her many successes.  She comes from long lines of proven Czech bloodlines full of champions.  Her sire is himself a very successful national and international competitor.  In fact, every one of her grand sires and great-grand sires are national or international champions!  Very few dogs in the world can boast that.  The female lines in her pedigree are also very impressive, every single one has earned their own working titles.

 

Erra is one of the highest titled females in GSD history! Only 3-4 dogs a year achieve the highly coveted Zvv# title and virtually none of them are females. Erra is rock star.

Origin, Characteristics, and Care

of the

Czech/Slovak & DDR German Shepherd

The German shepherd one of the most popular breeds around the world.

 

The Czech German shepherds are relatively new to the general public however; there has been much research about them since their founding. Czech German shepherds, or the Czechoslovakian shepherds, originated from the Czech border and were mainly bred just like DDR German shepherds (East German Shepherds). They were bred as working dogs in the Communist Czech since 1955 but only became popular when East and West Germany became one again in 1989. Additionally, that year, they were bred more as family dogs rather than working dogs.

 

Despite having the same origins, the two breeds aren’t the same. Regardless, these two variations of a German shepherd are often compared to each other. The DDR vs. Czech German shepherd issue became well known due to their many similarities. For one, both breeds are of the same bloodline, technically speaking.

 

There are, however, notable differences between the two and this is what serves as the line that separates DDR vs. Czech German shepherds.

 

Here are three of the most significant differences between the two:

  • DDR German shepherds can mature faster than Czech GSDs.

  • Czech GSDs have more drive and can be a bit too loyal to the point that they become obsessive.

  • The bone structure of DDR German shepherds is thicker than that of a Czech GSD.

 

As you have seen, they have differences in their temperament (drive), physical appearance (bone structure), and even growth and development (maturity). Keep in mind, however, that the aforementioned differences are a generalization. This means some characteristics may be seen in some dogs, while others don’t display the characteristics at all. Either way, a Czech German shepherd will at least have similar characteristics with the standard German shepherd.

 

The Czech dog breeds are characterized by typical German shepherd traits. They have strong jaws, thick skull, and pointed ears.

 

Their weight is also similar, with males ranging from 65 to 85 lbs. and females from 60 to 75 lbs. There’s also not much difference with their height. A male Czech GSD can be as short as 25 in or can be as tall as 27 in. Females, however, are shorter with heights from 23 to 25 in. A purebred German shepherd puppy will be longer than tall. To be more precise, the ideal ratio of the length to the height of a purebred German shepherd is 10 to 8.5.

 

Czech GSDs are police dogs and therefore have a powerful-looking structure. Unlike standard GSDs, they have thick paws and a deep chest. They often have a sable coat with mostly the Agouti pattern which gives them a black appearance like that of a wolf.

 

The ideology of what a German shepherd should be: intelligent and energetic also applies to Czech German shepherds. However, you may find that they aren’t what they used to be. In the past, Czech GSDs were bred with a “hardcore” personality, while originally bred for endurance and awareness with a hard edge to their personality, modern Czech German Shepherds are often bred for softer characteristics. Today, they make great family pets that enjoy playing with toys and relaxing in a comfortable home.

 

Czech German shepherds are prone to the same health issues that a standard GSD has. They don’t have any special illness exclusive to the variation, so you have nothing to worry about.

 

As Czech GSD has the traits of a normal German shepherd, they will naturally be easy to handle. They are intelligent and fast to pick up on things. However, Czech German shepherds are slower to mature compared to other breeds. Therefore, you will require more patience with these dogs.

 

Czechoslovakian shepherds were made as working dogs. They have high stamina and are bred for high levels of endurance. They can go up to 60 minutes of working without rest. This means they need an owner that will allow them to do so. If you’re a couch potato, this breed is not recommended for you. Not only will you be pushing yourself too much, but you’re also depriving your dog of their exercise needs.

 

Czech German shepherds will require the same amount of food just like the standard breed: 3 meals a day for puppies and 2 meals a day for adults which are 3-5 cups of food split evenly for the meals through the day.

 

Czech shepherds are seasonal shedders. To reduce shedding, brush your dog daily, bathe 3-4 times a year, change his food to one that targets a healthy coat and skin, make sure he is always hydrated, and control parasites. You can't avoid your GSD “blowing his coat” twice a year, but all these methods will help to reduce shedding.
