By | Uncategorized | No Comments

When a trained Kraftwerk K9 protection dog is invited into a family, they not only get a loving and loyal companion but they also get an extra set of eyes and ears, and teeth if necessary, watching over the safety of their pack. In this second article of our four-part series, Doug shares examples of where Kraftwerk German Shepherds are protecting people in places you’d expect and in places you probably wouldn’t.

The 200 Score in Obedience – A Study in Perfection

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

by Ellen Mantel Pfann – German Shepherd Dog Review / July 2015 In a sport where it is a big accomplishment to pass a class and perhaps earn a title, every Obedience Team has one thing in common: each one of us steps into the Ring with a Perfect 200 Score. Deductions can start as early as teams cross the threshold. A touch to the collar prior to the start of the first exercise or a happy bark could cause an immediate deduction. Most never expect perfection. Obedience is hard, after all. And there are also Obedience Judges that will tell you they will never give out a 200 score, because there is no such thing as perfection. In a…

Kraftwerk K9 Nikolai Vom Kraftwerk makes the silver screen! Due to appear in the anxiously awaited Hunger Games Sequel!!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Many Kraftwerk K9 German Shepherds do great things, competing at high levels in Schutzhund competitions and serving our police and armed forces. Sometimes though, doing something great doesn’t involve great feats of bravery. Nikolai Mikhal Vom Kraftwerk, or “Mikey,” has proved to be an amazing dog in the highly intense Hollywood  movie production, Hunger Games. His owner, Joey Rodriguez, shared this story with us: A couple years ago, I went thru one of those completely unpleasant and wholly unexpected breakups. I was just miserable for a few months as I tried to get my collective “stuff” back together. One day, when I was particularly upset and completely unprepared to deal with humans (or dogs), I took Mikey to the small park were we…

Why are there no more KKL1 and KKL2 ratings?

By | Uncategorized | 2 Comments

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.
