Margit Van Dorssen

My name is Margit van Dorssen and I live in Cologne, Germany. It is an honor for me to judge the GSDCA Sieger Show this year and I would like to express my gratitude to the GSDCA for their kind invitation.

 My kennel name von Arlett was 30 years old in October 2008. My most successful dogs were Ulk von Arlett and Ghandi von Arlett.

My basic philosophy is to try to breed dogs with an excellent conformation that still can be used as working dogs in the true sense of the word. In Germany we call this the Universal Conception, the dog that has an excellent anatomy combined with good working abilities.

In my breeding program I make intensive use of sable dogs. I have found in my experience the sable color improves the pigmentation.

I would like to extend my greetings to all Shepherd dog lovers at this event and I hope that everybody participating in this show will have the expected success.
