FRED LANTING,
AKC/International Judge, Author, GSD Breeder, SAAB Member

 

FRED LANTINGFred Lanting’s first purebred dog was a Toy Fox Terrier in 1937. In 1945, Lanting whelped his first litter, Smooth Fox Terriers. He acquired his first German Shepherd Dog in 1947 and by 1966 was an active GSD breeder and trainer.

 

During the late `60s, Lanting began handling for others, and still handled his own dogs to many record achievements. In the 1970s, he bred Whippets and, as an advocate of purpose-bred dogs, he owned a lure-coursing champion Whippet that was also in the conformation top-ten! He added the Shiba during the 1980s, and for years was the importer/owner of the #1 Shiba outside of Japan. He has served in many leadership capacities for specialty and all-breed clubs.

 

Lanting has been a hands-on trainer, consultant, and pro handler who, in addition to traditional conformation shows, bred, trained, and titled countless dogs in Schutzhund/VPG/IPO competitions.

 

It was inevitable that Fred would become a judge whose opinion was sought and respected by AKC and CKC clubs and exhibitors, as well as registries and show organizations in some 30 countries. A serious scholar of canine anatomy and health who has assisted in veterinary surgery, Fred has frequently served as guest lecturer at veterinary schools in the U.S. and around the world.
