Having come from a home that always had a dog I've always respected the German shepherd.
I always wanted my own as the one we had Rin had to be shared with my brothers and sisters!
After leaving home I got my own well bred German shepherd called Fran.
after trying to win obedience with her (she hated it) as soon as we won I retired her!
When I bred my first litter of gsd's I kept a dog back (Chad) for obedience,
determined to not have such a hard battle as I had with Fran so I made every thing FUN .
Chad my black and gold short coat dog was a beauty not only in looks but nature.
I had him hip scored wondering if his hips would be better than his mums (Fran ) her score was 10
Chad's came back at 8 so I was very happy.
I went on with Chad to win many obedience competitions agility and also Breed .
So in 1990 I got my GURNEYS affix.
I have over the years produced some beautiful dogs and have enjoyed every second of it.
and I've made some wonderful friends.
My husband and I are as mad as each other for our dogs and our passion lives on to this day.
