I thought the book was very informative and everyone that is thinking of buying a GSD or owns one should read it. It is filled with lots of useful information for lots of different situations.

This is a really good book because if one has any doubts about the GSD breed, you will save yourself a lot of hardship and unhappiness by reading this and buying a fish. It is informative, detailed, inspiring and very useful. Although I have had many German Shepherds, this book was on the breeder's list so I bought it and will use many of the resources listed in this book. I am so glad that I read it. My next German Shepherd will be the beneficiary of my recently acquired knowledge.
