Southeastern Regional Show and Breed Survey
By Richard Agee

A wonderful time was had by all who attended the Southeastern Regional Show and Breed Survey on March 15 and 16 in Statesville, North Carolina. The total entry for the event was 181 and there were many excellent dogs shown. The event started with “set up” on Friday. There were eight vendors with most anything relating to dog sports.

The Holiday Inn our host hotel was sold out again this year. A practice ring was set up and got lots of use Friday and Saturday. The judge, Herr Ernst Seifert arrived Thursday along with his wife. It was indeed a pleasure to work with Mr. Seifert, Mr. Seifert judged the NASS 2007. The helper for the Breed Survey was Josh Scutt, a Nationally Certified helper for the GSDCA-WDA. Josh arrived Friday and was available to work dogs that afternoon. Friday evening was spent socializing with old friends and meeting many new ones. The lounge at the Holiday Inn filled up quickly. Many dogs were “checked in” for the show Friday evening.

The Breed Survey was first on the agenda Saturday. Mr. Seifert had all the dogs in the ring for the gun shot test and then had each dog perform the protection test. All dogs passed. Josh did his usual outstanding work as helper. Then the measuring and weighing was done. The rest of the morning was spent writing the surveys on each dog.

While all this was going on the "kitchen crew" were very busy preparing lunch. A continental breakfast was available earlier.

A special recognition was made for the “Show Sponsors”: George Rowland, Patsy Rowland, Martha Hunt, Gail Bauer, Kathy Prudden, Cynthia McMahan, Marlou Andresen and Cindy Petersen. Their generosity allowed us to feed everyone lunch Saturday and Sunday.

The opening ceremony kicked the show off and Amy Ehrlich did a grand job of singing the Star Spangled Banner. As tradition has it the next thing was our famous raffle.

We had nearly $1000 in raffle items and it was the best ever. Many thanks go out to the good folks show contributed items to this. It was now time for the show.

The afternoon started with the 3-6 female class. Eighteen entries were in the catalog and were shown. There were quite a few pups to represent the stud force in America right now. Ulko, Liedo, Teejay and Yash were represented in the class. Mr. Seifert was very impressed with the class and all received the “VP” and the winner was Fanta vom Globalhaus with her sister Fina second.

The 3-6 male puppy class also had a large entry. They also all received VP with the brother of the females Fanto vom Globalhaus winning the class.

The 6-9 female class was called and all dogs were shown. Again all dogs received VP. The winner was Ava von Drache Feld, a Karat’s Ulko daughter.

The 6-9 male class had 8 entries. Again all received VP with the brother of Ava, Andy vom Drache Feld winning the class.

The 9-12 female class had 18 entries with 14 shown. All received VP with Ray vom Hartmann Haus, another Ulko daughter the winner.

The 9-12 male class had 13 entries with 10 shown and all receiving a VP. The winner for the class was Apoll vom Globalhaus, a Hoss vom Hirmer Teich son.

The showing ended there with a rather wicked thunder storm bearing down on us. Over all, it was quite rewarding for the American breeders.

The evening was spent dining and socializing with friends. The Holiday Inn had a special buffet set up for the show and the bar was well stocked for after dinner socializing.

The rain and storms passed with the night and Sunday came with the sun shinning. The Carolina German Shepherd Working Dog Club members were working early and had Danish, donuts, coffee and hot chocolate ready when the people arrived. They made sure no one was hungry or thirsty the entire show.

The 12-18 female class was called with 13 dogs entered and 10 shown all receiving SG. The first place female was Karat’s Sindy who is a very striking dog and a Granddaughter of Karat’s Ulko. I’m sure we will see her again.

The 12-18 male were called, seven were entered and four were shown. The winner was Eice von Quarin, a Pakos son from Germany. I should note here that the judge measured each dog and recorded this. Dogs that were oversized were excused. This continued for all classes on Sunday. Germany recognizes a problem in size of the dogs and is working to see it is corrected.

The 18-24 female class had 8 entries with seven shown. The winner was Maggie Haus Juris a Liedo daughter, she was shown last year and went VP1. All dogs in this class received SG.

The 18-24 male class was next. There were nine entries with seven shown. Hunter vom Nobelos was the winner. He is a Kerry Torberg son. This was a particularly nice class and all received SG.

A lunch break was taken and the Carolina Cooking Team did their thing. There was also time for shopping from the numerous vendors.

After lunch the show got started again with the Adult Class, then the Veterans Class, each had one entry.

The show got really serious when the Working Females were called. There were 18 entries with 13 shown. The stand for exam and single lap kept all eyes glued on the dog. Then the judge called the dogs in order to show. When the showing was over the V1 Female for the SE Regional was Nicoll von der Ochsenfurt, owned by Cynthia McMahan. This class was outstanding and all dogs got V rated. This kind of quality is seldom seen outside a Sieger Show.

The Working Male class was just as exciting. There were 19 entries six of which were prior VA dogs. Mr. Seifert commented it would be hard to find this nice a class in Germany. It looked like a Sieger Show class. The stand for exam and single gaiting lap were awesome. I was impressed by a new dog, Yash von der Bastille, a VA Hill vom Farbenspiel son. He placed 7th with six VA dogs in front of him. I thought that was quite a placement. When all the gaiting was over the winner was Liedo vom Kuckucksland owned by Megan Judge of Nokesville, Virginia. Liedo was the winner from last year’s show and was shown in excellent condition. Anyone looking for a stud dog should have been there. There was a super selection to choose from.

I must comment on the high degree of sportsmanship exhibited at the show. The judge also noted this. We appreciate all of competitors bringing their best dogs to show. This was a truly outstanding Regional Show. The results and on-line catalog can be seen on this website. We hope to see you in North Carolina next year on March 13-15, 2009.

Judge and Körmeister
Portrait of Ernst Seifert
Herr Ernst Seifert is a conformation judge (1994) and Körmeister (2000) with the Verein für Deutsche Schäferhunde (SV) of Germany. He is a SV member since 1974. He is coming to us from Bönnigheim, Germany. Map it!

We are fortunate and pleased to have him with us. We would like to thank him for coming and accepting our invitation.
First I would like to thank you very much for the invitation to judge this Conformation Show.
My name is Ernst Seifert and I come from Germany near the city of Stuttgart. I am 64 years old, married and have three children and five grandchildren. I am in retirement since the past few years.
I am member of the SV since 1974 and since then I have been active in many Ortsgruppe (OG)-offices in my region. I am a conformation judge since 1994. I am a Körmeister since the year 2000.
A special highlight in my career was the judging of the Bundessiegerzuchtschau’s, protection test of the female Working Dogs 2004 in Karlsruhe, Germany, the judging of the HGH classes 2005 in Ulm, Germany and judging the male Youth Dog Class 2006 in Oberhausen, Germany.
My kennel name is “Vom Baiselsberg”. I have exhibit many highly rated dogs in the past years in the Bundessiegerzuchtschau in Germany. For example: male Working Dogs VA5, V1, V10 and V12. Youth and Young Dog Class SG4, SG6, SG7, SG8, SG9, SG12 etc. I trained also approx. 50 dogs myself from SchH1 to SchH3, IPO3 and FH.
During my judging activity abroad I already travelled to almost the whole world. E.g. New Zealand, Mexico, Australia, Malaysia, America, Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Russia, Ukraine, Croatia, Lithuania, South Africa, Greece, Peru, The Netherlands, Belgium, etc.
My goal is to more strongly interconnect the conformation and working dog breeds.
