We have MANY dogs, several breeds and 1 crossbred. Our dogs are our PETS and are NOT "kennel" raised. They enjoy life on the farm and run, play and swim nearly every day, or in winter, they enjoy playing in the snow & on the ice. Their favorite thing of all is when we ALL go on our daily walk in the pastures to the ponds and the creek. We feed alot of RAW meat & bones (mostly beef and chicken) and we also "free feed" dry kibble. Our dogs also enjoy our "table scraps", including both raw and cooked vegetables. (We NEVER feed "Cooked" bones!)

AKC(American Kennel Club) Titles & Their Meanings

Ch-Champion of Record-earned by gaining 15 points in conformation wins. Points awarded is determined by the number of other entries the winning dog defeats. A dog must win at least two majors (by winning at two different shows under two different judges where there are enough entries defeated to equal 3-5 points by the AKC point system.)

OTCh-Obedience Trial Champion

To earn an obedience title, the dog must have a passing score of 50% of possible points or better, and an overall passing score at three different competitions under three different judges.

CD-Companion Dog (First Level Obedience Competition, basic obedience exercises)
CDX-Companion Dog Excellent (Intermediate Level Obedience Competition, more advanced obedience work)

ROM-Register of Merit-A dog or bitch must earn a number of points specified by the GSDCA rules, and also meet the numbers of champion and major pointed progeny required by GSDCA. The requirements for bitches are less than the requirements for the dogs because males have the opportunity to produce a far larger number of offspring.

TT-Temperament Tested
TC-Temperament Certified
AOE-Award of Excellence-A dog must meet qualifications in conformation, obedience, and also be OFA’d to earn this award.

OFA-Orthopedic Foundation for Animals
OFA Hip Certifications-dogs within a specified range of normal hip xrays are certified OFA-Excellent, Good, or Fair
OFA-Elbow Certification-Certified by OFA for normal elbows on xray, only one grade recognized as normal. Check with OFA for proper procedures and positioning for hip and elbow xrays. A dog may be preliminary screened at a younger age, but will not receive a certification unless the dog is at least 24 months old.

OFA is also now doing certifications for other canine health concerns such as normal thyroid levels, check with OFA for accurate data and rules concerning these.

CERF-Canine Eye Registry Foundation-dog is certified to have normal eyes. Recertification must be done annually.

VwD-Von Willebrands Disease free-meaning the dog has been tested and found free of VwD, a bleeding disorder, VwD free ratings also are often given with a percentage listed. For the best information on Von Willebrand’s Disease, contact Dr Jean Dodds, who is the leading research specialist in blood disorders.

Hemophilia free, meaning that a dog has been tested and is free of Hemophilia A if it is a male, or is NOT a carrier if it is a female, is sometimes seen (not nearly as often as it should be) in advertising or on pedigrees, meaning the dog does not have Hemophilia A. This problem is exclusively in the lines descending from daughters of Canto vd Wienerau (although spontaneous mutation is always a possibility-as it was with Canto himself). Great Britain has been much more aggressive in testing and eliminating this problem in the breed than any other country.
