Von Herder Haus Kennels is known for its world class breeding program of West German Show Line German Shepherd Dogs. Our dogs are bred selectively for puppies that are quick to learn, ready to please. We breed for temperament above all else. Our dogs are from show lines, but they are also working dogs. Our dogs are themselves engaged in work, and you will see that their pedigrees are full of top rated working dogs with Schutzhund and IPO working titles alongside their incredible show titles. We are also a top breeder of working Dutch Shepherds. Our lines are out of top KNPV, French Ring, and IPO sport dogs. Our "Dutchies" are limited in their outside breeding influence, by design. We have tried to keep our Dutch lines as pure and close to breed standard as possible. The Dutch Shepherd is a hard working, fiercely loving, incredibly loyal dog with a fantastic brindled coat. This is a dog with more drive than a typical German Shepherd Dog - it is suitable for an active household that includes their dogs as part of the family, or participates in one of the many sports for dogs. It is not a backyard watch dog.
We raise our puppies in our kennel with full exposure to our training center starting at just 6 weeks. The puppies do noise and surface acclimation drills, water acclimation, socialization with other dogs, as well as imprinting for obedience. We explore each puppy's natural drives and work to build according to what the buyer wants in their eventual adult dog. When you train puppies up the right way, you will not have to worry about many issues that people face with their dogs. Pedigree is the foundation, but you must work with what is actually produced. We breed freely, not forced. We believe in pairing dogs that will give us progeny that meet breed standards - for temperament, workability, and for looks. In doing so, we are able to produce dogs that have Character, Loyalty, Beauty. If you are interested in one of our puppies or adult dogs, contact us. We would love to talk to you about your plans for the dog, and options we have available. We will pair you with a dog that is willing to work and wanting to love!

We bring together our professional training, handling skills to offer our clients a wide variety of services. Learn more by clicking below.
