Deutsche Schäferhunde – von den Wannaer Höhen - Germany

Seit 1984 wird im Zwinger “von den Wannaer Höhen” gezüchtet. In dieser Zeit haben wir versucht gesunde, leistungsfähige und anatomisch ansprechende Gebrauchshunde zu züchten.
Dass man es erwähnen muss, gesunde Hunde zu züchten, ist vom Grundsatz her schon sehr schlimm! Die Realität zeigt jedoch, dass es ein immer größer werdendes Problem ist, einen gesunden, vitalen und langlebigen Gebrauchshund zu züchten.
In Zukunft wird die Gesundheit ein immer mehr zu berücksichtigender Faktor sein. Wir glauben jedoch, dass wir auf dem richtigen Weg sind, da mehrere in unserem Zwinger gezüchtete Hunde schon über Jahre hinweg auf höchster Ebene im Leistungssport geführt wurden und somit auch extremen körperlichen Belastungen gewachsen sind.
Unsere Zuchterfolge!
Bis zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt wurden mehr als 20 “Wannaer Höhen” – Hunde auf nahezu 100 Landesausscheidungsprüfungen geführt (9 dieser Hunde waren bereits Landessieger oder Sieger der FCI-Bundesqualifikation).
Auf ca. 20 Bundessiegerprüfungen wurden Hunde aus unserem Zwinger geführt. Einige Hunde wurden auf Internationalen Diensthundeführermeisterschaften erfolgreich vorgeführt. Auch im Bereich der Bundeszollverwaltung konnten sich unsere Hunde gut behaupten und waren vielfach Sieger in den jeweiligen Oberfinanzdirektionen.
Auf den großen Schauveranstaltungen sind Hunde aus unserem Zwinger nicht zu finden, da in den letzten Jahren m. E. das Erscheinungsbild des Deutschen Schäferhundes stark von dem Körperbau eines leistungsfähigen Gebrauchshundes abweicht, und auch der Gründer des SV bei der Festlegung des Rassestandards sich sicherlich ein anderes Erscheinungsbild vorstellte.
Wir werden jedoch auch weiterhin versuchen, den gesunden, nervenstarken, triebvollen Gebrauchshund zu erhalten und evtl. zu verbessern, damit auch noch nachfolgende Generationen Freude an der Zucht und Ausbildung dieser wunderbaren Rasse haben.

Kohlein German Shepherd Dogs

Kohlein German Shepherd Dogs
It all started as a family oriented hobby that grew into what we believe is our destiny.  We all have enjoyed the different avenues it has taken us, from watching our two daughters become fabulous and capable handlers through the many years of Junior Handling.
We greatly believe in only producing few litters and it shows as our puppies and dogs are so great in character. We hear back time and time again how wonderful everyone's dogs are doing and their word of mouth advertising has been the secret to our success of our kennel.

Kennels Z GARGAMELLU


German Shepherd dog at my number one since childhood. Not only for its beauty and nobility but for character traits. It is naturally intelligent dog with a balanced character.
On the first of which is also trying to breed the health and character traits, while the other exterior NO. Of course, at first glance, I like everyone interested exterior nice individual, but he is weak in character immediately loses points with me.
I think every breeder trying to breed NO such what he likes and is derived from that of his other work in farming. Everyone else is challenging whether the exterior or nature. Watching should but both minimal degree and not to favor only one or the other. That is why today also divided NO on the two variants and exterior work. Anyway, I imagine your NO such that they must like my eye and I have to be alone with him as happy in nature and outdoors


The first beginnings were around in my 10's when I was very interested in horses and dogs and I have to say that at that time it was just NO, which I wanted. My first dog was NO Marky without PP, black characters that I got from my friend. I started going to the training ground and in the process passed with him: ZVV1, ZVV2, ZPO1, OP1 and ZPS, three times we attended Youth Championship. In 1998, we even had the best obedience :-)
.
Kennel of Gargamella was established in 2002 in my 22 years. Preceded the purchase Gilly silver mines, which, however, could not be used for breeding and then tequila Anrebri ... I was lucky enough, I found an amazing dog that has made not only by their results and offspring, but also their personalities in my heart. So it is my duty this bitch actually the founder imagine.
Německý ovčák je u mě psem číslo jedna již od malička.  Nejen pro svou krásu a ušlechtilost ale hlavně pro povahové vlastnosti. Je to přirozeně inteligentní pes s vyrovnaným charakterem.
Na prvním místě o které se také v chovu snažím je  zdraví a povahové vlastnosti, na druhém pak exteriér NO.  Samozřejmě, že na první pohled mě stejně jako každého zaujme exteriérově krásný jedinec, ale když je slabý v povaze okamžitě u mě ztrácí body.
Myslím, že každý chovatel se snaží odchovat NO takového jaký se mu líbí a od toho se odvíjí jeho další působení v chovu. Každý je jinak náročný ať už na exteriér nebo povahu. Koukat by se mělo ale na oboje alespoň v minimální míře a neupřednostňovat jen jedno nebo druhé. Proto se dnes také rozdělil NO na tzv. dvě varianty pracovní a exteriérovou.
 Každopádně já si svého NO představuji takového, že se mému oku musí líbit a musím být já sama s ním spokojená jak v povaze tak v exteriéru.
První začátky byli zhruba v mých 10 letech, kdy mě velmi zajímali koně a psi a musím říci, že už v té době to byl právě NO, kterého jsem chtěla.  Mým prvním NO byl pes Marky bez PP, černý se znaky kterého jsem dostala od své kamarádky.  Začala jsem chodit na cvičák a postupem času s ním složila zkoušky: ZVV1, ZVV2, ZPO1, OP1 a ZPS, Třikrát jsme se zůčastnily Mistrovství ČR mládeže. V roce 1998 jsme měli dokonce nejlepší poslušnost :-)
Chovatelská stanice z Gargamellu byla založena roku 2002 v mých 22 letech. Předcházela tomu koupě Gilly Stříbrné doly, která však nemohla být v chovu použita a poté Tequilly Anrebri... Měla jsem to štěstí, že jsem natrefila na úžasnou fenu, která se zapsala nejen svými výsledky a potomky, ale hlavně svou osobností v mém srdci. Takže je mou povinností tuto fenu vlastně zakladatelku představit.

Zwinger vom Heidelberger Schloss

My name is Thomas Sauerhoefer. I am a breeder of German Shepherds since 1980 in Germany. I am the President and founder of the Marysville Schutzhund Club, and a member of the SV in Germany, United Schutzhund Clubs of America, and the GSDCA-WDA.

 I came to America ten years ago from Germany. My goals are to help people obtain higher quality dogs through my breeding program and importing services and to offer the highest quality dogs for Schutzhund, show, family, and companion. I grew up with dogs all my life. When I was 10 our family got a wonderful boxer, and when I turned 16 we got a Rottweiler named Arko. A close friend of the family took him for schutzhund training because we needed a protection dog for our company. My interest and fascination with the sport of schutzhund took off. At age 18, I bought my first dog, a German Shepherd. I had fallen in love with the breed for their looks and intelligence.
Rigor vom Heidelberger-Schloss  SchH 3, IPO3

 I started my career in Schutzhund and dog training with Vasko, a German Shepherd with working bloodlines. I titled Vasko to a SchH 3 in only one year and then I bought a female named Banja and titled her to a SchH 3 too. After I got her titles and breed survey, I bred Banja to Vasko and had my first litter of pups. I kept a male pup from this breeding and named him Kim. I trained Kim to a SchH 3. I bred three more litters with Banja, always with good results.


 One of the best training helpers in Germany was a member of my club and saw my love for the sport and talent for training dogs. He taught me everything about Schutzhund helper work. By the time I was 24, I started training dogs for other people, both working and show lines, because they also saw my talent for training.

San Diego Schutzhund Club

San Diego Schutzhund Club
Our Family Oriented club is dedicated to the development of the TOTAL German Shepherd Dog and participates in and hosts Schutzhund Trials, Conformation Shows and Breed Surveys.

Established in 1981, the Club affiliated with the United Schutzhund Clubs of America (USCA) in 1982. In 1999, a second club was formed under the name San Diego Schutzhund Club - WDA. This club is associated with the German Shepherd Club of America - Working Dog Association.
Although separate entities with different memberships, both clubs worked together to promote the German Shepherd Dog through schutzhund trials, conformation shows and breed surveys under a joint training program.

One of the earliest clubs in the southwest, we recently hosted our 45th schutzhund trial and 17th conformation show. In additional to hosting several regional events, the San Diego Schutzhund Club hosted the second USA Sieger Show in 1991 and the 2001 GSDCA-WDA North American Sieger Show.

Since our first trial, club members have trained over 30 dogs to SchH3 degrees with 23 individuals achieving entrance to the Schutzhund III club. Other accomplishments by club members include over 80 AD, 75 BH, 60 SchH1, 30 SchH2, 4 IPO3 and 3 FH1 titles.

Club members relax and brag about our dogs at our annual party and the many dinners honoring our judges. We also take time to socialize with our dogs. A favorite activity is a Wandertag - a day with our dogs in nature or on a group walk along San Diego bay, beside the beach or through our local parks.
We are proud of our accomplishments as a club, and welcome new German Shepherd Dog owners who desire to join us in our activities.

Trained German Shepherds

Trained German Shepherd dogs have a significantly higher value than puppies. They are a wonderful asset to people who are not able to put in the time necessary to train a dog or raise a puppy.
Hundreds of training hours are needed before a dog can pass the stringent requirements of a training degree. They require obedience training and training should be ongoing and consistent. Trained German Shepherds can be used for protection, service dogs, schutzhund, IPO, and K9 German Shepherds.

German Shepherd Harnesses

German Shepherd Harnesses
Choosing harnesses for German Shepherd Dogs can be a minefield, as many experienced dog owners know their cost, having wasted money on dog harnesses that either do not fit properly or are simply not the right type for their dog.
Below are some tips to ensure you get the best dog harness for your dog:
Consider the type of dog harness you want, what is the harness to be used for? Is it just for walking (walking harness), do you want to bike with your dog (running/sports harness) or does your dog pull and you want to training your dog to stop pulling (anti-pull harness)? Do you need one that serves two purposes, walking and to use in the car with a dog seat belt attachment? There are many different types of harnesses for dogs but these are the most common types that people need for their dogs.
Comfort has to be a major consideration and therefore a good fit is essential. Measure your dog's girth (chest), and neck circumference. Weigh your dog too and keep a note of these measurements and weight, as these will determine the size you buy. Manufacturers all use different sizing, so ensure proper sizing information is available. Look for adjustable dog harnesses. Good materials to look out for are cotton, mesh, neoprene, fleece and any type of padded harness. Avoid harsh materials like cord, rope and unlined leather, as these can cause chafing and therefore discomfort.
Ensure you know how the harness goes onto your dog - basically it is either a step-in harness or an over-the-head style with a belly strap or buckle.
Read user reviews online before committing to a purchase - sometimes when a product is new to the UK, there may be no reviews other than on American sites, don't worry about this - if the product is made in the U.S. this will often be the case and vice-versa. Good websites will have a section to contact them with questions about products/sizing, make use of this facility and certainly don't buy online from anyone who does not have contact details.
Remember there is no such thing as the perfect dog harness that will suit every dog but there are many first class products out there that are bestsellers for good reason. Sometimes a product may have a few old negative reviews that the manufacturer has taken on board and rectified.
Following these basic, common sense tips will give dog owners a good chance of getting the best harnesses for dogs.
