DDR Wertmessziffer Rating System
In the old East Germany (DDR) the physical, drive, and mental characteristics and traits of Schutzhund and working
dogs were rated by the Wertmessziffer system. In English Wertmessziffer means "measured value number."
Breeders and buyers depended on this 6-digit rating system to provide a comprehensive and reliable method for
easily determining the characteristics of each evaluated and rated dog.
