Thanks for adding that! Certainly easier than me trying to list them all here.

No freestyle titles listed, though. wink

This list has many of the German rating terms translated/explained. Some spelling is incorrect but the meaning holds.

PS I would add
'DSH' = Deutscher Schäferhund
analog
'GSD' = German shepherd dog (which is in the list)
