Puppies Coming Soon!
Von der Stadtrand German Shepherd’s are bred from the finest German Import Schutzhund 3 working lines crossed with only the best German Import VA Sieger show lines. With the help from families in the SE Wisconsin area all of our dogs are house dogs living with families. Our breeding dogs are tested and selected by Clayton Warichak, breeder and Schutzhund trainer for over 20 years. All of our breeding dogs have been hip checked and are free from hip dysplasia. Additionally, all of our breeding dogs have strong nerves and are confident in all environments. It is imperative that all of our dogs are social with children and are able to perform both Schutzhund obedience as well as Schutzhund protection training.
We currently do not have any available puppies. For information on our upcoming Spring/Summer 2020 litters, please call Clayton at (414) 628-4071.
Von der Stadtrand German Shepherds has been named the Best Dog Breeder of 2019 in Jefferson Wisconsin.
We are honored to be chosen for this award. It makes us feel good that so many people value what we do to better the German Shepherd breed and to provide family pets, working dogs, and show dogs with great temperaments and health. It motivates us to keep doing the best and being the best every day. Thank you to all of our Von der Stadtrand families who have taken the time to share their stories and experience with Von der Stadtrand German Shepherds. Without you, none of this is possible.
We feel honored that our Foundation female Olympia Von der Stadtrand at age 11 was chosen as the model genome example for the German Shepherd Breed!
The Comparative Genetics Laboratory at UW School of Veterinary Medicine will be using Olympia’s DNA to create a high-quality reference genome. The current reference genome for all genetic research in dogs is based on a Boxer, which can make research using other breeds difficult. Having a GSD reference will allow them to perform the best science that they can to understand the genetic basis of disease in the GSD.
We, at Von der Stadtrand, are active members of the Chicago Schutzhund Club. We compete at both conformation and schutzhund trials.
