The German Shepherd Dog – German Lines Or American Lines – Which Are Better?

The German Shepherd dog breed which was brought into existence over 100 years ago, has changed immensely since then. These breed has gone in separate directions in Germany and America. Now, German Shepherds bred in Germany have a completely different look and a different temperament from those bred in America.

There is an organization called the FCI or the “Federation Cynologique Internationale”, based in Belgium. This world canine organization was constituted on May 22nd 1911 and its main mission is to advocate and preserve purebred dogs around the world. The main activity of the FCI is to link all the dog clubs around the world in order to have consistent breed standards. Even more; it insures that all the pedigrees and the judges are recognized by all FCI members bilaterally.

The organization has 84 members, one of each country. They all issue their own pedigrees and train their judges. These are national registries, but there are some that are international. All over the world, national clubs are members or partners of the “Federation Cynologique Internationale”. The only important exceptions are the United States, England and Canada.

The FCI has 10 groups which encompass the different breeds: 1st Group; Sheepdogs and Cattle Dogs (with the exception of Swiss Cattle Dogs) 2nd Group; Pinschers and Schnauzers – Molossoids – Swiss Mountain Dogs, Swiss Cattle Dogs 3rd Group; Terriers (large and medium) 4th Group; Dachshunds 5th Group; Spitz and Primitive Types 6th Group; Scent hounds and Related Breeds 7th Group; Pointing Dogs 8th Group; Retrievers – Flushing Dogs – Water Dogs 9th Group; Companion and Toy Dogs 10th Group; Sight hounds

The German Shepherd dog breed is part of the herding group.

There is also an independent organization; a breed-specific registry club which is not a national registry. It is known as the SV or Verein fur Deutsche Schaferhunde (the German Shepherd Dog Club in Germany). This is the breed’s parent club. It is the most extensive and active breed specific club in the whole world. The SV has two main activities. It is a breed specific registry and it sponsors sporting and training events, thus influencing the breeding of working dogs.
