SUPERIOR GERMAN SHEPHERD DOGS
Located right in the heart of central Alberta, Canada, we are dedicated to breeding world-class, purebred German Shepherds that preserve and better this amazing breed. Our lines are developed primarily from West German and American Show Lines with a focus on temperament and health. As such, our dogs are ready to excel in all areas of work and play; the ideal performance dog and family companion!
We are perfectly situated on 40 acres of natural forest with multipurpose trails and grounds to work with our dogs. With daily runs and individual training both indoors and out, our dogs live in the home with us and our three young children as part of our family. All of this combines to result in sweet, social and well rounded dogs excited for the day's next adventure.
All of our breeding dogs experience time in the show ring to prove temperament and structural conformation to the breed standard. We don't focus solely on showing dogs as we wish to present a well rounded dog that will do well in all types of homes. Generally we will personally put a minimum of a Canadian Championship on each dog in the conformation ring to demonstrate that a minimum of three independent judges agree our dogs are of sound structure, good temperament, and conform to breed standards. Additionally, our dogs must pass all health tests (OFAs, DM, DNA, etc.) before being considered for breeding in our program. Kellnhaus dogs are also introduced to a variety of performance sports and therapy work to challenge them and see where they excel as individuals.
