The Illustrated Standard for the German Shepherd Dog
is the most comprehensive book on the breed ever published. It features 200 pages
and nearly 500 of Shaw’s original drawings
and diagrams illustrating the structure, anatomy and gaits of the German Shepherd Dog. Also lavishly illustrated with photographs of good dogs of past and present, no one who studies the material in this book will be in any doubt about what is and isn’t normal structure and gait in a working dog.
The result of the author’s years of experience in both show and schutzhund, and as a professional animal illustrator, it presents an objective, performance centered interpretation of breed structure, uninfluenced by the fashion of any particular show ring.
In its printed form, The Illustrated Standard for the German Shepherd Dog sold out within six months. It was awarded Best Breed Book of 2016 by the Dog Writers Association of America, and was also praised by Prof. H. Messler, President of the SV, as the best book since Gorrieri.
This pdf is the same file used to print the book, with a few minor edits and some added colour. It has an interactive Table of Contents that will forward the reader directly to the desired page and paragraph. This ebook version is priced at $25 USD, less than half the price of the printed book.
Note: Flickrocket shows the price at the current Canadian dollar exchange rate, which will vary, but your purchase will be processed by Paypal at $25 USD.
