In The News
Germany’s Der Speigel magazine comes to the United States and names Kraftwerk K9 as the best German Shepherd breeder in America!
The German Shepherd is the second-most popular dog breed in the United States. And Curry is the most successful German Shepherd breeder in the country.
In this four-part article series I will share the story of my visit to Kraftwerk K9, the function and benefit these dogs offer individuals and families, how these German Shepherds are molded and trained for their role, and will conclude with the story of my family bringing one into our home….
This year marks the 22nd annual Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic. In 2010, more than $700,000 dollars was raised to aid in the fight against drug abuse and child neglect in Florida.
During the weekend of November 11-13, 2011, celebrities, sports stars and many friends will join together for a spectacular weekend of festivities and fundraising. Kraftwerk K9 will debut a live practical protection dog (PSK9) demonstration at center court on both days of the event. For more information please visit http://www.chrisevert.org/
“OUR KRAFTWERK K9 HAS SURPASSED EVERY QUALITY MY FAMILY WAS LOOKING FOR & HAS DEMONSTRATED AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF INTELLIGENCE, DRIVE & AFFECTION”
About half way through my day at the Kraftwerk K9 training facility I began to realize just how versatile these dogs are and the variety of situations they could be incorporated into. I asked Wayne Curry, owner of Kraftwerk K9, about the various applications where these dogs are currently being used and other possibilities where they could be. It quickly became apparent to me that the limits of where these dogs could prove useful are only limited by your own creativity…
When I first drove up to the Kraftwerk K9 facility I was greeted by a closed gate. On it hung a phone number, and beyond it stood two imposing German Shepherds who communicated clearly that they knew I was a stranger. They weren’t vicious or particularly aggressive, but they exuded a certain “standing-their-ground” confidence and presence that convinced me I would never want to jump one of these fences. As I would come to learn during my visit, these traits are a characteristic of every Kraftwerk dog.
