Study into the temperament of German Shepherd Dogs and the links to genetics and lifestyle


The Roslin Institute (part of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies,

University of Edinburgh) and Scotland's Rural College are beginning a study,

funded by the Dogs Trust, on German Shepherd Dog temperament. The GSD League are happy to support this work . We would encourage all of our members to participate in this study by completing a questionnaire about your dog. A similar study has already been completed Labradors.

Here is an explanation from Dr Wiener....


The Labrador survey was similar to the questions we are asking GSD owners,

although we have expanded this somewhat based on the results from the

previous study. There are two parts to both studies, the first is focused on

the lifestyle and health of the dog.  The current version is reached through the link


The second part of the study involves questions about behaviour,

you can reach that through this link
