Police K-9 magazine is published bimonthly. It is a true tactical magazine, primarily dealing with police issues related to tactical dogs. Relevant to my previous essay, I inferred the crossing of Dutch Shepherds & Malinois dogs to German Shepherd dogs creates a superior athlete.The readers that doubted this assertion need to read Police K-9 Magazine etc.
I have grown weary looking at young German Shepherd Dogs impaired with serious physical problems. Some incarcerated by both orthopedic & allergy issues. Allow me to shoot from the hip. I feel with appropriate hybridization we may increase working years of the GSD by 15%. This coupled with a variety approach to feeding may bring the total improvement to 20%. Keep in mind,”Genetics always Eclipses nutrition.” This would explain why the genetic yield would be greater than the nutritional increase on a percentage basis. In part these percentages come from my personal experiences crossing breeds & feeding dogs.
