Important  new news from the WUSV about breeding:

Change of breed standard in relation to the type of hair “Long Straight Topcoat with Under-coat”

Due to the resolution in the 2008 and 2009 Federal Assembly, the SV filed a motion with the FCI to adopt the type of hair “Long Straight Topcoat with Undercoat” as a separate variety in the breed stan-dard of the German Shepherd Dog.

This FCI has now approved this motion effective 1 January 2011.

This means that from 1 January 2011, German Shepherds with the type of hair “Long Straight Topcoat with Undercoat”

– can participate in breed surveys,

– can participate in breed shows. The organisers can set up separate classes for dogs with this type of hair. It is not possible to install mixed classes with straight-haired and Long Straight Topcoat.

– are approved for breeding. Here it is to be noted that mating is only approved between dogs with the same type of hair (e.g. Straight Topcoat Hair with Straight Topcoat Hair, Long Straight Topcoat with Long Straight Topcoat). Mating between Straight Topcoat Hair and Long Straight Topcoat dogs is not permissible.

In the following you will find the amended version of the breed standard for your further information:

1. Coat of hair, sub-item “quality of hair”

New version:
Hair: The German Shepherd Dog will be bred in the hair varieties Straight Topcoat Hair and Long Straight Topcoat, both with undercoat.

Straight Topcoat Hair:
The guard hair shall be as dense as possible, particularly harsh and close fitting: short on the head, including the inside of the ears, short on the front side of the legs, paws and toes, some-what longer and more strongly covered in hair on the neck. On the back side of the legs the hair extends to the carpal joint or the hock; it forms moderate ‘trousers’ on the back side of the haunches.

Long Straight Topcoat:
The guard hair shall be long, soft and not close fitting, with tufts on the ears and legs, bushy trousers and bushy tail with downward formation of tuft: short on the head, including the inside of the ears, on the front side of the legs, on the paws and toes, somewhat longer and more strongly covered in hair on the neck, almost forming a mane. On the back side of the legs the hair extends to the carpal joint or the hock and forms clear trousers on the back side of the haunches.

2. Excluding defects

New version:
……..
k) Long Straight Topcoat without Undercoat

For this purpose, please also note the regulations with regard to breed show, breeding and surveys on our homepage, which already includes the new provisions.
