February 2012


Long Stock Coat Verification Success !

On Sunday Feb 18th 2012, prior to a regular breed survey, the GSDCV held our first Long Stock Coat Verification Day. On this inaugural day, there were 6 LSC assessed by the Victorian breed surveyors/judges - 2 adults, 2 5-10month males and 2 young puppies.
The LSC assessment is required for all dogs born before Jan 1st 2012, in order to transfer the dog to the LSC register. Puppies born from now on will be registered by the breeders directly on the LSC register. If you're unsure, talk to your branch Breed Liaison officer or the GSDCV Breed Affairs Adminstrator. Below are some pics from Sundays event ! (pictures courtesy J Urie)
