Must read

Great read for those like me. I'm a 47 year old finally starting a dream to be a GSD lover, trainer, and breeder. Super good information all lined out to assist in planning & organizing. I have owned GSD's before but now am prepared to take a higher level commitment to raising and enhancing the breed. Looking forward to it & this book is a great start in collecting information.
