I have to agree that I think this is a large part of the problem.  I have seen 
many an A/B judge put up a really nice STANDING gsd, but that couldn't move to 
save his/her soul, but who could tell since they could maybe get in three steps 
before having to change direction?

  I agree with Ann for the most part. The quality of GSDs at the All Breed 
shows is often disappointing. However, maybe if the rings were large enough to 
evaluate gait properly, the judges could make better decisions. JMO

  I have been going to a lot of all breeds and there is
  not enough good movement there for a judge to even see
  good sidegait, in most cases. There are a FEW judges
  that put up the movers and many more that only look at
  the end of the lead. Ann
