In 2012 there was a collective agreement from all countries to change to one standard for every country. IPO is the internationally recognized working dog degree demonstrating the functional requirements of Schutzhund. To eliminate any confusion every country follows the same rules and standards in tracking, obedience, and protection worldwide.

As of January 1st, 2012, the differences between KKL1 and KKL2 ratings were ended in favor of a universal breed worthiness test. Either the dog is breed worthy or not signified by KKL. The change was approved to promote functionality of dogs rather than just appearance. This new change makes KKL more difficult to achieve while leveling the playing field between “show” and “working” types, with more focus on the importance of functionality. This is a great step forward in returning the breed standard to its original, sturdier form, Kraftwerk’s standard from the beginning.

We believe that if a dog is truly fully trained, there is no need for the presence of an experienced trainer.

Of course we can, however additional fees will apply.

Most dogs we offer for sale are German imports with training degrees. The adult dogs with training normally start at $10,000.

Standard deposit is 25% of the purchase price. Pick of puppies is determined by who sends in deposits first.

First step is to complete the online purchase agreement stating the litter and sex desired.

All of our puppies are $5,000 to $6,000. Sometimes more when they are bred outside the United States.

The 25% deposit is a promise or “good faith” commitment to complete the sale. It is considered a re-stock fee if the buyer decides not to complete the sale.

Yes, some times circumstances change and it is not the best time to bring a new dog into the family. Deposits towards puppies must be applied towards another puppy.  Adult dog deposits must be applied towards the purchase of another adult dog.

After the pups are four weeks old the deposit is not transferable.

Dogs are pack animals so when they are removed from the family they know and are familiar with what they will need to fulfill their need to belong to a pack. It is a basic instinct, the higher the pack instinct the more the dog desires to bond. A highly developed pack instinct is dominant in performance bloodlines.

We send the dogs using the airline pet priority service. They are the last on the plane and first off.

Normally you will go to the cargo department for pickup, separate from the terminal.

Freight charges for delivery of puppies is between $200 and $500, average cost for adults is $600. Airline approved kennels are between $100 and $200.

Most often the dog can be sent freight collect so you can pay the airline directly.

We accept three deposits each for males and females but exactly how many will be born is out of our control. The deposit is transferable to another litter of your choice. It is not refundable as we schedule breedings depending on how many deposits we are holding.

Once puppy is 8 weeks old and within 24-48 hours after final payment has been received, the puppy will be sent via Air Cargo and will arrive in around 1-2 days. (Total delivery time, once final payment is received, is around 4 days.)

Full payment for the puppy needs to be completed prior to delivery or training beginning at 8 weeks old. Cost of training shall be paid prior to delivery of dog.

We can care for the dog for seven days free of charge after the expected delivery date. The dog must be paid for in full by the end of seven days and delivery scheduled or the dog will become available for sale. Buyer will be subject to the re-stock fee. Starting on the eighth day, there is a $35 boarding fee per night.

Yes, they are shipped to the new owners by air cargo.

Prior to sending the dog we will email or mail guidelines outlining what the new owners can expect. Along with a dvd of obedience from the beginning.

We sell trained dogs that are titled under recognized certified judges. A truly well trained dog does not need an experienced handler in order to perform what he has previously learned.

An experienced dog handler can make a marginally trained dog look better than what it actually is. It is more important that the new owner can get the results expected, not only what the dog can do while the trainer is there.

Yes, our kennels tours are scheduled by appointment. One of the staff members will be able to guide visitors around the facility after 11am.

Dogs are pack animals. When they are removed from their human pack they will look for a new one to belong to. When the dog transfers his loyalty to the new owners his trained behavior will also transfer.
