" Know what your work is and do it!"
Following are many thoughts and ideals from Capt. von Stephanitz' book,
"The GSD in Word and Picture".
His original concept cannot be improved on, it can only be validated or destroyed by us.
Welcome to our Capt. Max v Stephanitz pages !
This Max v Stephanitz education site was done out of love for our breed, and the hopes that we all could get a better understanding of what the founder of the breed envisioned. These pages have had many sites linking to them since 1998, I hope you'll join them!!
Note: Editing & paraphrasing liberties are for brevity & clarity's sake, but there is no taking out of context or changing the intent of the author. HOWEVER, these are not exact quotes.

" A leader without expert knowledge of and affection for the dog will achieve only mediocre results with the best trained dog: while an expert dog-loving leader can achieve good results with a dog of only fair capacity. In other words, the whole question is not only a question of the dog, but quite as much, if not more so, a question of the fitness of the leader." Max v Stephanitz
