Bobbi King, German Shepherd Breed Representative

German Shepherd Dogs are well-known for protecting their homes and are great family companions. They make wonderful rescue and search dogs, military, police K-9 units, as well as service dogs for the blind, hearing and physically disabled and assist with other challenges and provide many other services to mankind. A German Shepherd living in your home will be right there as a strong deterrent against crime, they alert to noises and scare off intruders, vs. no dog and having to call police. With proper leadership, the GSD is highly trainable with consistency and guidance training.

Joan Ronalder, German Shepherd Breed Representative

Vom Ron German Shepherds, Joan RonalderThe working type German Shepherd Dogs, mostly either Czech or East German in origin, tend to be what the founder of the breed, Max Von Stephanitz, had in mind when the breed was created. Dark, either sable or black and red, some are black, smaller ears, somewhat lighter in bone and shorter backed than other import types. The RinTinTin type of German Shepherd, with unequaled work ethic, they are bred for and excel in border patrol and police work.

The kindness and consistency with which this type is trained determines behavior. Often they are seen as being aggressive but that is untrue as this is in no way a vicious dog. They are very loving with their family, watchful of strangers, and serious about protecting their people. STRENGTH OF CHARACTER IS PARAMOUNT. Combined with strong nerves and great trainability, this German Shepherd Dog is an unsurpassed candidate for police, search and rescue, and guide dog work. This is the dog who would willingly lay down his life for you, while lovingly guarding you, your child, or an elderly family member.

Then, being Joan, she trained three Schutzhund dogs at the same time, earning an unheard of four Schutzhund titles in 3 months! Website: Phone: (828) 286-9768 EST 1998 Dec 2008-154166y2203
