The German Shepherd Dog in the UK

The  general quality of many German Shepherd Dogs (and of many other pedigree dogs) in the UK is poor. When people buy a 'pedigree' German Shepherd which is registered with the Kennel Club they think that gives them some sort of guarantee of quality. It does not.  This applies even to German Shepherds which have won shows under Kennel Club rules.

Elfie at Camber sands in May 2017

Elfie at Camber sands in West Sussex in May 2017. You can walk dogs there throughout the year.  Although some section of the beach is restricted between May and October it is a large enough beach for there to be room for everyone. It can be windy as you can see from sections of Elfie's fur.
