President’s Message
by Daniel J. Yee
Congratulations To Our 2014 WUSV
Universal Sieger Competitors:
The WUSV Universal Sieger Championship
took place on June 20 to 22, 2014, at
Slovakia. The United States Team was well
represented by Doug Jeffery/Elle Rallhaus,
Rick Shair/Gipsy vom Rosenschlag, Erin
O’Shea/Zambo vom Riedschlurgi; and
Cheryl Nance/Chloe v. Bullinger with
Kevin Nance as the Team Captain.*
Erin and Zambo (two-time WUSV
Universal Sieger Champions) placed
third among the teams entered in the
male class. Cheryl and Chloe placed
third among the teams that competed in
the female class.Rick and Gipsy came in
eighth place in the female class. We extend
huge congratulations to each of you. You
all did a wonderful job of representing the
United States at this very important WUSV
event! Sincere appreciation and thanks go
to Kevin for taking good care of the team.
The competition at the WUSV Universal
Sieger Championship was intense. 45 teams
from 12 different countries competed.
The teams from Germany, Slovakia and
Belgium earned high honors for placing
first, second and third, respectively.
(*Note that Montell Brown/Hendrix
von den Oher Tannen were also part of
the United States team, but could not
participate because Montell was not fully
recovered from a bout with pneumonia.
Montell is now fully recovered and we
expect to see more of him and Hendrix in
upcoming events.)
Best Of Luck To All The German Sieger
Show Exhibitors:
The annual German Sieger Show takes place
this year at the historic city of Nuremberg,
from September 5 to 7. We expect that the
4
WDA will be well represented at this event,
as in past years.
In addition to showing, many WDA
members attend this event to support as
well as to keep abreast of the relevant news
and developments that are important to the
improvement of the German Shepherd Dog.
We extend our best wishes to everyone for
a safe and pleasant German Sieger Show
and the best of luck to all exhibitors!
18th Annual North American Sieger Show:
The WDA will host its18th Annual North
American Sieger Show at Dallas, Texas,
from October 10 to 12, 2014.
For the past 32 years, since 1982, the WDA
has been promoting the improvement of
the German Shepherd Dog by sponsoring
WUSV/SV-style events in the United States.
In 1997, the WDA began the annual
tradition of hosting the premier national
SV-style conformation show for German
Shepherd Dogs in North America. That
event is known as the North American
Sieger Show (“NASS”). In 2013, the WDA
made history by combining the NASS with
the very first WUSV North American
Sieger Show. Today, 18 years after the
inaugural NASS, that tradition continues
in Dallas with the WDA making history
again by having the same two judges who
judged the male and female working classes
at the German Sieger Show as officials at
the NASS! This is an absolute first for the
United States!
Lothar Quoll (the current National Breed
Warden of Germany) and Leonhard
Schweikert (the former National Breed
Warden of Germany) are coming to the
United States, directly on the heals of
the German Sieger Show in Nuremberg,
GSDCA-WDA: The Complete German Shepherd Dog
to judge the 2014 NASS/WUSV North
American Sieger Show. Mr. Quoll will
judge all the male classes. Mr. Schweikert
will judge all the female classes, as well as
conduct a breed survey on October 9, 2014,
the Thursday preceding the show.
Carl Smith and Rory Kennedy are the
helpers of the performance evaluation for
the dogs entered into the working classes.
The 2014 NASS/WUSV North American
Sieger Show will be well-attended by
both United States and international
participants. This will be the perfect
opportunity to catch up with worldwide
friends who are in the German Shepherd
Dog sport.
Annual Membership Meeting:
The annual WDA membership meeting
will be held at 7:30PM (Central Daylight
Time) on Friday evening, October 10, 2014,
at the Westin Dallas/Fort Worth Airport
Hotel, 4545 West John Carpenter Freeway,
Irving, Texas 75063. The Westin Dallas/
Fort Worth Airport Hotel is the host hotel
for the NASS/WUSV North American
Sieger Show.
As in the past two years, the WDA Board
is working on arrangements for satellite
meeting locations. Information for these
satellite locations will be announced by
email and posted on the WDA website, as
soon as the arrangements are complete.
Good Luck To The United States At The
WUSVWorld Championship In Haguenau
France
The 2014 WUSV World Championship will
be held in Haguenau, France, from October
5 to 12, 2014.
WDA members, Sigrid Riess-Mundry and
Jacob B. Pope, Jr. (with their dogs, Ayro vom
Vogelbergblick and Hammer Haterproof
von Stan, respectively) will represent the
United States.** WDA member, Michael
Conley, is the Captain of the United
States Team.
We wish the very best of luck to all the
United States team members!
(**Note: Jacob and Hammer are alternates
on the United States Team. The team
selection was determined at the 2014
WUSV Joint Qualification Trial and
is based upon the scores awarded to
each participant. As a result of the Joint
Qualification Trial, Janis Skeath and
her dog, CJ Maserati vom Schweizerhof,
were selected as first team alternates.
CJ, however, took ill and was not fully
recovered on the date of the WUSV Entry
deadline. Accordingly, Janis and CJ are not
included on the United States team roster.)
GSDCA/WDA Update:
The Colorado and Arkansas lawsuits
between the WDA and the GSDCA
continue.
A July 21, 2014 hearing was scheduled
by the Colorado Court for the purpose
of hearing the WDA’s application for a
preliminary injunction against the GSDCA.
By stipulation of the parties and approval
of the Colorado Court, that hearing was
postponed. No new hearing date is set.
Any new hearing date will be subject to the
approval of the Colorado Court.
In the interim, the Colorado Court has
ordered the parties to mediation. The
Arkansas lawsuit is stayed per court order.
Updates on the lawsuits, including updates
on both the preliminary injunction hearing
and the mediation will be provided as
information becomes available.

Reprinted with permission.
The O’Shea
Way
by Sarah Goforth
photograph by Kathleen Dooher
E rin O’Shea does not waste time. She finished a Ph.D. in two and
a half years, rose from novice to world champion dog trainer in
under three, and, at age 47, is moving into an executive leadership
role at HHMI.
The eldest of five children, O’Shea is just six years older than her
youngest sibling Meggan. Both women describe their middle class
upbringing in western New York as happy and ordinary. Their
father ran a residential contracting business, and their mother left
a career in physical therapy to run the household. All the O’Shea
kids performed well in school and excelled as athletes.
But there was something different about Erin. “She was intensely
focused, much more so than the rest of us,” says Meggan O’Shea.
“With Erin it’s always been, she’s going to do what she wants to
do, she’ll do it very, very well, and she’ll do it fast.”
Andrew Murray, a longtime colleague of O’Shea’s, puts it another
way: “Soon after people meet Erin, if you were to ask them how fast
this woman could gnaw through a quarter-inch bar of steel, they’d
be like, ‘oh, probably 90 seconds.’” After hearing O’Shea present her
research as a graduate student, Murray was so impressed he helped
recruit her to the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF),
and later to Harvard University, where she’s been since 2005.
O’Shea, an HHMI investigator since 2000, maintains a prolific
research lab focused on understanding how cells sense and respond
to their environment. Her contributions range from discovering
how single cells adapt at the molecular level to changing levels
of light and stress to analyzing randomness in gene expression
patterns. Her work has advanced the broad understanding of
basic biological mechanisms and helped scientists studying cell
growth patterns in cancer and other diseases.
In July, O’Shea will become vice president and chief scientific
officer at HHMI, moving with her husband Douglas Jeffery to
Chevy Chase, Maryland, where HHMI is headquartered. She
views the job as both an opportunity to do something new and as
a natural extension of her past work—as a scientist, administrator,
mentor, and educator.
Influencing Undergrads
By the time O’Shea joined Harvard, she felt an obligation to give
back to the scientific community by training and educating the
next generation of researchers. As director of Harvard’s Faculty
of Arts and Sciences (FAS) Center for Systems Biology, O’Shea
has recruited and mentored many junior faculty. With a tight-knit
HHMI’s new chief scientific officer Erin O’Shea
applies an uncommon intensity to her research and
training—of students and German Shepherds.
group of colleagues, she created an innovative undergraduate
science course.
“A lot of people with her level of accomplishment are not great
listeners, but she’s interested in people and makes time for them,”
says Dan Kahne, a Harvard chemistry professor who created
the course Life Sciences 1A with O’Shea and four other faculty
members. “With students, that’s very important. It doesn’t have
to be all about her.”
The enormously popular course is a matter of pride for Kahne,
O’Shea, and the others on the faculty team. They present science
as a detective story at the intersection of chemistry and biology—
the two disciplines that drive progress in the life sciences today.
Students explore a handful of experimental case studies rather
than a body of facts and prefabricated lab exercises. The course
draws more than 500 students a year, and O’Shea reports that
the number of life science majors at Harvard has grown by 40
percent since its inception.
“We choose topics that capture students’ interest and motivate
them to learn the underlying detail,” she says. “We tell them like
mystery novels with a thread that hooks them all together.” O’Shea
keeps regular office hours for her undergraduate students, meeting
with them one on one and often helping them find research
positions in labs.
“I came to Harvard in part because I wanted to teach
undergraduates, because the people who taught me at that stage
of my education had a big influence on my career,” she says.
Sparks of Interest
As a high school student in Leroy, New York, O’Shea enjoyed
learning about science but envisioned herself as a veterinarian
or doctor. It wasn’t until her sophomore year at Smith College
in Northampton, Massachusetts, that she learned what it meant
to do science. She began conducting research on catalysts in an
inorganic chemistry lab and was allured by firsthand discovery.
“I was excited to be doing something where, unlike the science
course labs I’d had before, we didn’t know the answer. We were
actually finding the answer,” she says.
Her famous focus kicked in. “There was a pretty marked change
in her,” says her sister Meggan. “She had found something that
she loved and put all her energy into it. By the second part of her
sophomore year, she was around a lot less. We all noticed it, that
she was really dedicated to what she was doing.”
By the time Meggan entered Smith in 1989, her sister had published
a groundbreaking paper as a graduate student in Peter Kim’s lab at
the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It had people
May – June 2014

talking. “My bio professor said to me, ‘Are you one of the O’Shea’s?’
and I knew she was taking off,” recalls Meggan.
Driven by Questions
Erin O’Shea distinctly remembers the moment that fueled her
running start. In the latter part of her senior year at Smith she
began working at MIT’s Whitehead Institute for Biomedical
Research. One afternoon the following summer, she was reading
the journal Science at a picnic table outside the Whitehead, where
she had taken on a short-term research project on nucleic acids
in Kim’s lab. A paper by Steve McKnight, a biochemist now at
the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, described
a protein motif called the leucine zipper—a key part of many
transcription factors that guide cells to turn genes on and off.
“I had this idea that McKnight’s model was basically correct
but wrong in detail,” she remembers. O’Shea had taken a course
at Smith that focused on a class of structural proteins called
coiled coils, and she thought she recognized their hallmarks in
McKnight’s protein motif.
So she went to Kim, who had worked on protein folding, and
he let her try to make the peptide and see if it was a coiled coil.
“And it was. It was a big result in the field of protein folding, and
it was an idea I had come up with. It was very exciting.” O’Shea’s
work changed the way the scientific community understood
the leucine zipper and, by extension, how transcription factors
interact with genes.
To her parents’ dismay, O’Shea decided not to enter the M.D.,
Ph.D. program at Yale. She had no alternative long-term plan.
Instead, she stayed at MIT to follow the leucine zipper trail in
Kim’s lab. “It wasn’t some big vision I had about how it would
help my career. It was more, I want to do these experiments, and
I have to stay here if I want to do them.” The following January,
she was admitted to MIT’s Ph.D. program, funded by an HHMI
predoctoral fellowship.
She solved the crystal structure of a leucine zipper in fine detail
two years later, a paper that caught the attention of Francis Crick,
famed for his discovery with James Watson of the DNA double
helix. Crick had proposed the structure of a coiled coil in the
1950s. He wrote the young O’Shea a letter, congratulating her on
the high-resolution structure. Her confidence boosted, O’Shea
presented her work in a seminar at UCSF the following year.
Andrew Murray was a junior faculty member at UCSF at the
time. “I went home and told my wife I’d seen the best seminar I’d
ever heard, and it was given by a graduate student who looks like
she’s fresh out of college,” he recalls. “It was a combination of the
quality of the work, the way she framed it conceptually, and the
confidence and panache with which it was presented.”
UCSF offered O’Shea a faculty position—a rare opportunity for
a scientist just out of graduate school—and gave her two years to
do whatever she wanted. She split the time working with HHMI
President Robert Tjian, who at the time was a Hughes investigator at
the University California, Berkeley, and with Ira Herskowitz at UCSF.
In Tjian’s laboratory, O’Shea became interested in how gene
expression is regulated by chromatin—the tight packages of DNA
and proteins inside the nuclei of cells. It was a divergence from
her protein structure work. “Tjian was incredibly supportive,
even though I was heading in this new direction,” she says. “He
wanted my curiosity to guide what I did, rather than telling me
what approach to take.”

GSDCA-WDA: The Complete German Shepherd Dog
At that time, much of the transcription field was focused on
studying transcription in test tubes, says O’Shea. She wanted
to examine the system in a physiological context, inside the
chromatin.
That decision led her to the Herskowitz lab, where researchers
were studying transcription factors in yeast. Herskowitz had
determined the genetic pathways that allow yeast to reproduce,
and he supported O’Shea’s decision to refocus on biology. “I was
used to doing physical chemistry, so it was another big change in
my career track,” she says.
Expert Timekeeping
That change stuck. At Harvard, O’Shea’s lab of 15 students and
postdocs, which occupies a modest space on the second floor of
the FAS Center for Systems Biology, is surprisingly diverse for
its size. Lab members represent half a dozen countries and just
as many disciplines, and they study biology at the cellular level
in mice, yeast, and bacteria. No question is off-limits as long as
it is both interesting and important, says O’Shea, but the lab’s
primary areas are still gene expression and regulation—how cells
turn genes on and off or dial them up and down. In recent years
O’Shea has also taken an interest in the molecular clocks that
govern circadian rhythms—the 24-hour patterns of activity that
help organisms predict the availability of and respond to warmth,
light, and nutrients.
“There’s something special about the clock in the cyanobacterium,”
says O’Shea, referring to the blue-green algae that are responsible
for 70 percent of all photosynthesis on Earth. The molecular
clocks inside cyanobacteria anticipate daylight and then drive the
production of proteins needed for photosynthesis. “There was this
remarkable paper where a Japanese team [led by Takao Kondo]
showed they could take the three proteins that make up the clock,
mix them together in a test tube, and reconstitute oscillations
with 24-hour periodicity,” O’Shea says. In other words, the clock
proteins appeared to be sufficient to keep time, independent of
any other processes of the cell. This was contrary to conventional
wisdom, which held that circadian clocks are governed by cycles of
transcription and translation in a cell—in which a gene produces
a protein that performs a task and then eventually halts its own
production. When O’Shea read the paper, she couldn’t resist
asking: how do these proteins function absent those cellular cues?
“People thought the clocks in all organisms had a common
architecture that relied on this transcription–translation feedback,”
she explains. Instead, the clock appeared to rely on biochemical
interactions of the three proteins. To stay synchronized for weeks
at a time, it needed only to be supplied with the energy-storing
molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
Kondo’s team had wowed the biochemistry community with this
news, but the mechanism by which these three proteins kept
ticking remained a mystery. Intrigued, O’Shea tested the proteins
in different conditions and eventually described the process by
which it happened—phosphate groups from the ATP being the
key ingredient—in a detailed mathematical model.
The Meaning of Mentorship
The cyanobacterial circadian clock is a small but illustrative piece
of O’Shea’s research portfolio. She encourages the researchers
in her group to follow their interests and develop questions
independently, even if they diverge somewhat from her own.
Two of her postdocs, for example, are testing drug-screening
platforms, projects that are more clinical than O’Shea might
choose out of a more fundamental curiosity about the way things
work. Team members view her as a decisive but relatively handsoff leader who invests her energy and attention where it will have
the most impact.
“Erin manages her time very well,” says Xu Zhou, who just
completed a Ph.D. in O’Shea’s lab and will soon begin a postdoc in
the lab of HHMI investigator Ruslan Medzhitov, an immunologist
at Yale University. “She will tell you when she’s available to review
your paper or grant, and if you send it on time, she is there waiting.
You know when she sleeps, because the emails stop around 11:00
at night and start again at 5:30 in the morning.”
As Zhou became more confident in his research, O’Shea stepped
back, giving him freedom to follow his instincts and troubleshoot
his own problems. But when it came time for him to apply for
postdoctoral positions, she became an everyday presence again,
making herself available to speak with the researchers Zhou
interviewed with. In the end, he received offers from each one.
“She says few words, so when she does, it’s kind of like it’s
pronounced from the heavens,” adds Tim Peterson, a gregarious
postdoc who is working to develop drug screens for a class of
bone diseases. “When I wrote my first grant, I sent it to Erin
when the deadline was a couple of weeks away. She had some
suggestions, so I revised it. Then every day or two for the next
few weeks, she’d send me a few more questions or changes,” he
says. She kept coming back until it was better than solid. “It was
this really interesting refinement process, not entirely painless,
but the end product was excellent.”
Enter Zambo
All evidence suggests that is the O’Shea way. In 2007, O’Shea and
her husband were at the Denver airport when a working German
Shepherd caught her eye. O’Shea’s family had kept German
Shepherds as pets, and she loved the energetic breed—though
she knew they required more time and attention than the mellow
bulldog she had at home.
important or because it interests her, and before you know it, in
the blink of an eye, she’s the best in the world.”
The Leadership Stamp
“Erin is one of those people who have leadership stamped on
their foreheads,” says her friend and colleague Andrew Murray.
“Sometimes when she’s running at full intensity, it is easy to
mistake her for one of those people who is occasionally wrong but
never in doubt. But she has the intelligence, courage, and grace
to go back and reflect, and if necessary, rethink her position. She
has great judgment as an administrator.”
In her new role as vice president and chief scientific officer at HHMI,
O’Shea will lead the Institute’s flagship Investigator program and
its many extensions. She will maintain her Harvard lab, Skyping in
for lab meetings and returning in person every month.
As at Harvard, O’Shea sees her most important job at HHMI as
finding, recruiting, and supporting the best people. “If you want
people to succeed, you’ve got to pick the people well and do
everything you can to support them,” she says.
For O’Shea, offering support often means yielding control, says her
colleague Dan Kahne, citing an analogy from a shared trip to the
O’Shea family’s lakeside cabin in New Hampshire. Kahne recalls:
“My wife and I weren’t sure about bringing our kids, but Erin said,
‘Are you kidding? Pack up the water skis and bring everyone.’ She
was the only one who would let my son take the canoe out by
himself. I told her that was a good way to lose a canoe. She said,
‘But look how much fun he’s having. It’s the only way he’ll learn.’”
Giving scientists freedom—to explore untested ideas; to pursue
unexpected leads; to enter, and even forge, new disciplines—is
a cornerstone of the HHMI model. As Kahne sees it, there is no
one better suited to deliver on that promise than O’Shea.

“Right then I told my husband we should get one, and he’s like,
sure, okay. That’s what he’s always like,” O’Shea remembers with a
laugh. They found a breeder and bought a four-month-old puppy
named Zambo, a “gorgeous, red and black little thing.” Soon, dog
and owner were immersed in the training sport called Schutzhund,
in which judges rate dogs on anatomy, obedience, and agility.
“Schutzhund is like a religion in Germany, but I had barely heard
of it. I just figured I had to get some obedience training anyway,
so why not try it,” she says. Zambo was a natural at the sport.
Soon he was winning local competitions and placing in the top
10 nationally, with O’Shea as his handler.
“One day I was Googling the word ‘Schutzhund,’ and the next thing
I knew I was spending three months in Germany with Zambo,
preparing for the world championship,” she says. It paid off. Zambo
earned the world championship title in 2011. At age 3, he was the
youngest winner ever, an early achiever like his owner. Rumors
of a fluke victory circulated, but Zambo won again the following
year. After that high point, O’Shea decided it was time for him to
retire: “Like Michael Jordan, you gotta go out on top,” she laughs.
“That’s just what Erin does,” says HHMI professor Richard Losick,
another Harvard colleague. “She picks something up, because it’s
Erin O’Shea and her world champion Zambo run the paces of
Schutzhund, a test of agility and obedience among German Shepherds.

GSDCA-WDA: The Complete German Shepherd Dog
2014 GERMAN SIEGER SHOW
Nuremberg, Germany
by Larry Vinzant
O n September 5 through September 7, 2014,
the World Series and Super Bowl of
German Shepherd Dogs descend upon the
beautiful city of Nuremberg, Germany. This
event is returning for the fourth time to
this fine venue. The German name for this
event is “Bundessiegerzuchtschau” which
we will refer to hereinafter as the German
Sieger Show or BSZS.
It is not uncommon to have 3,000 dogs
entered from almost 50 countries. The
55,000 SV members support the numerous
SV events from hundreds of shows and
hundreds of trials and HGH events. The
catalog itself is over 230 pages chock full
of famous historical kennel names along
with up and coming breeders. And the
commercial or vendor area is a shopping
mecca for everything you would need to
train, show, feed, groom, and transport
your beloved German Shepherd Dog.
Other vendors offer everything from
trainer wearables, all the way across the
gamut to GSD door knockers in brass.
Some vendors have large and elegant tents
offering a sitting area with fresh coffee
and beverages to discuss your needs or
simply to get you acquainted with their
offerings. One of the most unique vendor
areas is where you can find every type of
bovine bones, chew sticks; bully sticks and
supplements (just follow the scent).
Wear your walking shoes as the venue in
Nuremburg has these key areas for each
activity or discipline:
• Grundig Stadium (divided into 2 fields
until Sunday, when it becomes 1 giant
field)
• Youth Males (Zeppelin Field)
• Youth Females
•
•
•
•

Young Males
Young Females
HGH Class
LSTH Males
LSTH Females
Male ring for “Stand for Exam”
Female ring for Stand for Exam”
SV Tent
Camping Area (In high demand)
Luckily there are plenty of refreshment
stands between venues and truthfully the
complex is perfectly set up with plenty of
seating area in the stadium and the Zeppelin
Field. During the performance tests, held
in the stadium, if you select a good seat,
you can watch both the working males and
females as they present themselves with a
2.5 meter curtain separating the stadium
into two areas.
The German food vendor’s area offers
every type of typical German food you can
imagine. From fresh crepes, sandwiches,
ice creams, wurst (sausages) (of all colors).
Okay, here is a list:
• Streuselkuchen (Crumb cake)
• Schweinebraten (Pork roast)
• Maultaschen (Type of pasta)
• Sauerkraut (A sour tangy tasting dish
that is made out of shredded cabbage)
• Frankfurters (Hot dogs)
• Spätzle (Type of pasta)
• Brathänchen (Fried chicken)
• Buletten (Meatballs)
• Bratwurst (Fried sausage)
• Flammekuchen (Also known as 'flame
cake'. This is a thin layer of pastry that
is topped with cream, onions, and
bacon. Cheese and/or mushrooms are
sometimes added as well.)
“During
the performance tests, held in the stadium, if you select a good seat, you can
watch both the working males and females as they present themselves with a 2.5 meter
curtain separating the stadium into two areas.”
May – June 2014
13
• Frittierte Zwiebelringe (Fried onion
rings)
• Doboschtorte (A seven-layer cake with
mocha cream)
• Rote Grütze (Red fruit pudding)
• Salzburger Nockerl (A dumpling
soufflé)
• Nachspeise (Dessert)
• Lendensteak (Sirloin steak)
• Jägerschnitzel (A cutlet that is prepared
with mushrooms and peppers)
• Zwiebelsuppe (Onion soup)
• Schlachtplatte (Cold cuts and sausage
platter)
• Sauerbraten (Marinated beef )
• Currywurst (Fried or grilled sausage
served with curry powder and ketchup)
• Speckpfannkuchen (Pancakes served
with bacon)
• Stollen (A cake with citrus peelings)
• Mettwurst (Soft smoked sausage)
The BSZS consists of these 3 classes:
1. Youth Class (12-18 month)
2. Young Dog Class (18-24 month )
3. Working Dog Class ( 2 years and up
with titles)
Keep in mind each class has males and
females, and “stock coat” and “long stock
coat with undercoat.”
Thursday is a rush to get in line with all the
competitors to present your paperwork
and documentation and then to receive
your numbered vest. The numbered vests
are reusable and must be returned to get
your trophy or get a fee from the SV for a
replacement. After you get your numbered
vest/s, it’s time to tune up your dog for
tomorrow. A good dinner with friends
makes the evening fly by.
Friday is here and if you have an adult dog
it’s time for your performance evaluation. If
you can imagine 6 male and 6 female helpers
rotating in and out and hundreds of dogs are
presented to the Performance Judge in the
stadium. The crowd is very vocal on every
dog, either with applause or disappointment
in the performance test. At first glance you
might think this is easy, but, the attack out
the blind (this routine does not exist in the
IPO routine) can be nerve racking to the
handler and the dog in a 30,000 capacity
stadium with screaming fans, helpers that
are fast as lightning and no guarantee of
which helpers are assigned to your dog. If
you get by the attack out of the blind, you
are halfway there with only the long bite to
be accomplished. Fingers crossed your dog
is fast, has a calm grip and outs.
14
In the last few years the Performance Judge
also critiques the dog on a 5 point system
on both phases over the public address
system. Below are the possible scores and
outcomes:
5 Points
Dog reacts quickly, directly, energetically
and conclusively, dog exhibits a calm, full
grip in all phases of the defense exercises.
Dog releases after the allowed command
and shows powerful guarding with strength.
4 Points
Reacts at once and conclusively, shows
a good grip but not completely full and
is somewhat anxious in all phases of
the defense exercises. Releases after the
allowed commands and shows good guard
phases with good hardness.
3 Points
Reacts with hesitation, should show more
speed and impact, and slows down a little.
Show a short grip which should be fuller
and calmer, does slip but immediately regrips. Releases after the allowed command
and shows good guarding phase.
2 Points
Reacts with hesitation, undetermined,
grips with hesitation, slack grip, is weak
and ineffective. Releases after the allowed
command, and should show more power
in the guarding phase.
1 Point
Doesn’t react, doesn’t follow, doest grip
or guard.
So if someone tells you a dog had 4-4 or
a 4-5, that is a great score, but a 5-5 is
awesome. At this juncture the Performance
Judge also issues the TSB judgment.
Disqualifying actions can include failing
to heel after 3 attempts, handler help, no
out after 3 attempts, gripping other parts
of the body, handler helping on long grip.
So if that is not enough, in another ring
outside the stadium, younger classes
are being judged and the adult dogs go
immediately from the performance tests
in the stadium to an even different ring for
their “stand for exam.” At the peak of activity
8 or 9 rings are being used on the campus.
Saturday is another action packed day with
younger dogs being judged in the Zeppelin
arena, shopping in the dozens of vendor
booths, meeting old friends, observing
the finest German Shepherd Dogs and
seeking to meet a breeder with a specific
bloodline you have been studying. Today
is also the day the progeny groups exhibit,
GSDCA-WDA: The Complete German Shepherd Dog
through their offspring, the traits from
their father. The hundreds of campers
also have a culture unto themselves as
they cook, groom, walk and enjoy either a
private meal or a communal tent wherein
groups of campers go in together to have
a temporary “mess hall.”
Sunday is the day. Hopefully the sun is
out and the weather is good as you fend
off the chill with a hot cider or strong hot
coffee. Today the finalists in all categories
will either be presented or shown. Just
a reminder, each age group has males,
females, stock coat and stock coat with
undercoat. The absolute pinnacle is the
showing of the top females and males in the
working class. The field has been expanded
to almost encompass a full professional
soccer field. These dogs are pushed to the
limit in lap after lap as the Judge assesses
gait, structure, stamina, strength and
endurance. The dogs yearning for a VA or
high V status are required to be gun sure
and perform 1 fast lap with no leash. In this
exercise, the judge examines the unfettered
movement of the animals and their ability
to stay in position with their handlers.
By early evening the VA and high V dogs
have been selected. A beautiful stage
is quickly brought onto the field with
decorative flowers and the long awaited
trophies are presented. Both cheers and
tears are apparent as the winners exit
triumphant and others did not fare as their
owners had hoped. But fear not, we will
work hard all year, and be some of the first
to register for the 2015 BSZS.
A visit to the BSZS or BSP is a great
opportunity to see the highest caliber
German Shepherd Dogs in the world. Many
countries are enjoying success with their
own GSD breedings including Italy, Spain,
The Netherlands and the USA. Put this
event on your bucket list.

2014 North American WUSV Sieger Show
by Larry Vinzant
Dallas, Texas
The North American WUSV Sieger
Show will be held in Dallas, TX, this year
on October 9-12, 2014. The Sieger show
is the culmination of a year of hard work
for breeders, trainers, handlers, and their
families in the effort to create that perfect
German Shepherd Dog.
This year the NASS-WUSV will include
a Breed survey wherein the SV Breed
survey master observes the temperament,
gunfire sureness, and performance work.
Additionally the Breed survey master will
measure the height of the dog, observe the
dog in the “stand for exam” and evaluation
of movement. After completing the survey
the Breed survey master will announce the
results. The GSDCA-WDA website offers a
listing of the pre-requisites to enter a Breed
survey. The owners of the dog receive a
temporary Breed survey certificate that
has been signed by the Breed survey
master, awaiting the official Breed survey
document.
The Breed survey is the highest Breed
qualification and emphasizes the dogs that
are recommended for Breeding. The Breed
survey is good for two years and then a
lifetime survey can be accomplished inside
the two-year window. Breed surveys are
done on “stock coat” and “long stock coat
with undercoat.” The maximum number
of dogs to be Breed surveyed is 50 per day,
any number beyond that would require
an additional half-day. The GSDCA-WDA
is a German Shepherd Dog organization
that adheres to the Verein für Deutsche
Shäferhunde (SV) as closely as possible in
the United States of America. The WDA
is proud and honored to be so closely
aligned with the SV in Germany. The longstanding delivery of SV trials, shows and
SV-mandated prerequisites has enabled
the WDA to be appreciated and respected
by the SV.
Friday begins with performance test
practice for the working males and
females. Additionally, the younger dogs
begin their ring work and judging by the
two SV Judges, Lothar Quoll - Males
(SV Breed Warden for the entire Breed)
22
and Mr. Leonhard Schweikert - Females
(Former SV Breed Warden). Herr Quoll is
the NASS Male Judge and German Sieger
Show (BSZS) Working Male Judge for
2014. He is the current SV National Breed
Warden and one of the greatest historians
of the Breed in the World. NASS Female
Judge and German Sieger Show Working
Female, Judge Mr. Leonhard Schweikert, is
a former SV National Breed Warden. He
is Breeder of the Kennel "Aus Agrigento."
He is considered one of the world's most
knowledgeable judges.
The venue for this event is a large 6-8 soccer
field complex reserved exclusively for our
NASS. A short 13-15 minute trip between
the hotel Westin-DFW makes this an ideal
location. Numerous, well-known vendors
will be there to market everything IPO and
Ring-training related. Two unique food
providers will have nourishments for all.
Saturday progresses with the actual
performance work with titled males first,
followed by titled females. Immediately
following the performance test, the “Stand
for Exam” will begin for the above dogs.
Young dog classes (12-18 months ) are
being evaluated with stock hair first and
long stock with undercoat next.
Saturday evening and night at the WestinDFW is where new friends are made and
new old acquaintances are rekindled. The
stories will flow about past NASS events,
regional shows, the BSZS, latest breedings
and acquisitions. Into the night we will
celebrate the Breed and friendships made
recently and those lifetime friends made
due to the true German Shepherd Dog. The
Westin-DFW is a premier hotel with ample
free parking, beautiful public areas, and
plush rooms. The staff and management
of the Westin-DWF look forward to your
arrival with your dogs. A bathing area for
the dogs will be made available.
Sunday culminates the event with staging
of the Progeny Groups, Young Dog classes
(18-24 months), Working classes in the
ring, and Veteran and Kennel Group
competition. Award ceremonies are
GSDCA-WDA: The Complete German Shepherd Dog
eventful as we honor Young Dogs, our
Siegrin and Sieger, our VA and V working
class, Progeny and Kennel Groups and
Special-Performance awards.
If you’ve never been to a NASS event, you
need to come to Dallas with your dog(s) and
experience the camaraderie and knowledge
of hundreds of years represented by the
numerous participants, breeders, helpers,
handlers and trainers. Spend some time to
meet the judges and learn from their insight
in the Breed in Germany. Spend time
meeting breeders, handlers and helpers
to help us all improve, in America, the
Breed we love so much, the true GERMAN
SHEPHERD DOG.

Man Trailing Essentials
Part 3, Conclusion
by Jo Collins
Jo Collins is a member of the Central Illinois Police and Working Dog Association
and of the American Mantrailing, Police and Work Dog Association.
I n “Man Trailing Essentials,” parts 1 and 2,
the articles focused on the American
Mantrailing, Police and Work Dog
Association (AMPWDA) membership,
both law enforcement officers and civilians,
what equipment we need, what we do, and
where we train for search and rescue, as
well as what law enforcement officers do
to keep their communities safe.
In this article I want to focus on the dogs
of AMPWDA. Man trailing is not limited
to specific breeds. There are a lot of Blood
Hounds and German Shepherds on the
trails, but there are other breeds as well,
for example, the Cane Corso, Beagles,
Dutch Shepherds and many mixed breeds
also participate. Eagerness to work, good
scenting ability, solid physical conditioning,
and even temperament are prerequisites.
All dogs involved in this activity must be
friendly, well-mannered, non-aggressive
toward people or other animals, and
trained not to jump on anyone. Obeying
commands from their handlers is essential,
so they must have sufficient training to be
able to trail a victim who may be weak or
ill without creating a situation that might
endanger the victim.
As an organization, AMPWDA does
not buy or sell dogs or place dogs with
individuals or agencies. Our dogs belong
to our members, who have been successful
using Portuguese Water Dogs, Labradors,
Australian Cattle Dogs, Australian
Shepherds, Border Collies, Pitt Bulls,
Golden Retrievers, Blood Hounds,
Malinois, German Shepherd Dogs, and
many other purebreds along with mixed
breeds. We have used rescue dogs found
in shelters and in breed-specific rescue
facilities. Some police departments also
benefit from having rescue dogs that have
been trained by their police K-9 trainer, in
the process not only saving the life of the
dog but also easing the strain on the fragile
K-9 unit budget. All of these dogs come
for training once a month in Cloverdale
or Rockville, Indiana, and some have been
cross-trained for other jobs in addition to
man trailing, for example, in protection or
article search. The police dogs, of course,
are trained for what law enforcement needs
them to find. The purpose of AMPWDA
is thus twofold: the police look for fleeing
felons, escapees from prison, and fugitives
from the law, but AMPWDA also searches
for people who have become lost or are the
victims of a hurricane, tornado, or other
type of disaster.
As man trailers we could not do our job
without the help of our dogs’ keen senses
and determination to “find their man.” The
handler and dog aim to be a team working
in perfect unison on the trails. But the
handler must always keep in mind that
he is working with an animal and there
are factors that may throw a dog off scent.
Sometimes natural elements make the task
difficult: wind or water from an earlier rain
might be enough to throw the dog off scent
for a short time. This is not a bad reflection
on the dog, nor does it make the handler
and dog a less good team.
In training we want our dogs to be
successful. If the trail is lost for some
reason, we go back to the starting point
and retrace our steps. The more positive
their training experience, the more they
want to go out on the trail and please us.
Remembering to keep a positive attitude in
training benefits everyone: the victim, the
community to which we are volunteering
our time and skills, our fellow man trailers
and our dogs. The dogs of AMPWDA do
a lot for us, and at the end of the training
day they are happy to receive a kind word,
a scratch on the ear, a bowl of kibble, and
some down time to relax and be dogs. x
