    .. I reconnected with Wayne and spoke with him about my next family dog - Wayne was great and always made himself available to speak with me no matter how many times I called or texted. I had three requirements in a new German Shepherd for my family - a) well trained b) good house manners and c) social and gentle enough to be around my wife, children and 6-1/2 year old granddaughter. We settled on Kimon - a 4 year old IPO 3 male. He has been with my family for 11 days now and he is a magnificent animal and has already bonded with my wife and me plus our granddaughter comes by almost every day to be with Kimon. Thank you Wayne and everyone at Kraftwerk for all your efforts to prepare Kimon to be a member of my family."

    "The work, science, effort, time, and love that Kraftwerk K9 put in to Falko is fantastic. When I tell people that after I literally searched the world over for the best gsd breeder on the planet - I actually found them/you. While there were others that came close in side by side comparison – there was only ONE that stated simply and matter of factly with regard to the “delivery of the dog” ….. a Kraftwerk dog can be flown to you and you will open the crate and they will be ready to go. When I pressed for clarification (this is my 1st dog after all and I have no experience) a Kraftwerk K9 does not need to be accompanied by a trainer – a good trainer can make a bad dog look good – your Kraftwerk K9 will be good on his own. I never forgot that and it was so true. We followed the home integration suggestions to the T and wow – what an awesome result."

    I have attached a photo so that you could see what a beautiful girl Lula is growing into. I am so pleased with my choice of Kraftwerk as my breeder and my choice of Lula. She has a wonderful temperament: sound and stable with excellent ball and prey drive. And, she is so intelligent. My veterinarian and general people on the street often comment on how beautiful she is, and I agree!

    We purchased a male pup from you last June. He was from your Canto/Flori "Q litter" born 4/4/16. He is AWESOME! We've worked with him from day one and he is superb in every way. He attends a twice weekly day camp where he works with a certified animal behaviorist and trainer. We've also taken a number of classes where he has earned his AKC S.T.A.R. puppy certificate, as well an official title of NTD (Novice Trick Dog.) He is outstanding. I am considering starting him on IPO soon, because I see him being extra protective lately towards our 5 yr old daughter and myself. He's not so much with the men in the house, but if he is with either of us ladies, he is on guard and makes his presence known with a constant rumbling in his chest. :) We all love him! He is now 9 months old and approximately 85 lbs of pure joy! I should also mention that his ball and prey drive is incessant! He will never stop retrieving the ball and begging us to play with him. He will play for hours on end, if he has a person to throw it for him. Oh, and it's worth noting that he is constantly trying to protect me from the evil vacuum cleaner and leaf blower. He's evidently convinced of some sort of sinister plot and won't stand for it. Haha!
     
    We see why you are the authority on all things GSD. He is gorgeous, brilliant, and has the absolute best temperament of any GSD we've had.You have done the breed well. Thank you! I'm attaching a few pics of our precious boy.

    We have purchased 2 wonderful dogs from you. The first was Elvis, an 18mo old boy! What a wonderful addition to our family!!  

    The second was Orina when she was 4 months old. Wayne selected her for us based on our conversations about needs and home situation. She is a perfect match. She is still learning new things and loves to please.

    I am writing to tell you that our sweet Elvis passed away in August 2016. He was a protector, companion, and friend to us as well as to all of our grandchildren. It was hard to let him go. He was 14 years old and had reached a point of being unable to get around most of the time. He was loyal to the end and is sorely missed. Thank you Wayne and Karftwerk for the joy your organization brought to our home all those years ago and continues to bring us today.  

    Orina continues to love going to my sewing room and lay at my feet during the day. She is also a terrific playmate for our 5 year old grandson who lives with us. He tends to be fearful at night so she helps keep him from being afraid. Hubby and I get ready to turn in for the night and tell her it’s time to go to work. She hops up, runs to his room and lays down on her mat. When he awakens at night she goes to him and kisses him, reassuring him that all is well. She is in good health and walks with us as we take our grandson to school every morning, playing in the park as we go and return home.

    I have a attached a picture of Elvis a couple of weeks before he passed away. 

    Thank you again for our fur family members.

    The best working dog for a family!
     
    Inga is now 2.5 years old, 80 lbs, big head, long haired, jet black... She looks like a wolf when she runs in the woods. Always alert and she knows her job: watch the house and stop intruders on the property... and she did it successfully... The best part is that she switches off instantly once asked to "foos", and returns to sit on my left side... It is clear that she has the proper genes and that the Kraftwerk team is 100% responsible for that. Training is easy as she just loves to work. and when work is over, she can be around kids and babies and will be the sweetest dog. I never thought I would love her that much, I am so impressed with her abilities. She is very intense in all that she does. Last but not least, I can take her to company picnics and pretty much any other type of activities, and she will not be overly friendly towards others, but just minds her own business and tolerate others. The environment is always different, lots of people, noise, airports, cities or out in the woods, and she just behaves and can turn on at any minute should there be a threat on anyone in the pack. Loyal, trustworthy and loving... Thank you for making such a great dog...

    My experience with Kraftwerk k9 was when I purchased my new family member Mika, they were very friendly and answered all my question and if they didn't know the answer they went and found it.. My puppy has been awesome and has the drive that I like which is very hard to find with alot of breeders. Alot of people breed papers but Kraftwerk breeds quality German Shepherds. With that said I would highly recommend Kraftwerk for your next puppy but remember these puppy's DON'T sleep all day!!!

I can't thank Kraftwerk enough for this perfect companion!!!!

    Fargo is AMAZING! He has settled into our family and goes everywhere with us. He spends his days at the office greeting clients, or at daycare where he has made some good friends. We love him.
    He loves playing on the putting green and chase the golf balls. He doesn't like the feel of the ball's though because he spits them out once he gets one.

    I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Kraftwerk K9 and my Dog. She is my family and is loyal to a fault. She is by my side everyday and is Healthy and Strong. She is a great guard dog and she is also wonderful with kids. She can be tough when she needs to be and so gentle the other times. She is great with my 1 year old niece. I would highly recommend Kraftwerk as they were professional and caring and delivered my girl to Burbank Airport safely. Thank you for the addition to my family.

    My pup just turned 3 and we are beginning to compete in PSA (more fun than Schutzhund but seems to be tougher). Some people doubted my decision to get a working pup from Kraftwerk but now many ask where because they want a pup like mine. His drive is more malinios like than Shepherd but he is still a very nice and loving dog. I am very happy with my decision and thankful to the trainers that picked out a working dog for me. Many breeders have their eye on us as we begin competing!

    Initially we had lots of issues, however we took a step back because Utah is not out main home and thought he may do better here in Louisiana. And boy what a 180!  He is perfect. He is adjusting to the Louisiana heat which isnt easy for anyone.  We still have some obeying and jumping problems but we know he's a giant puppy and he doesn't realize his size. He is quickly becoming a big part of the family.
    Thank you,

    I wanted a very drivey dog, with a very solid temperament. I got exactly what I asked for! It's tricky to buy a pup sight unseen -- in this case I took a chance and I'm glad I did. I spoke with Wayne personally over the phone, and he assured me (with a bit of a laugh) that the female pup I was interested in was MORE than I wanted. She's now 17 months and pretty much a perfect working dog. She's eager to do any work I want her to do, she's tough and solid -- mentally and physically. She's REALLY friendly with everyone (a bit of a new experience for me with working dogs) BUT she's at the same time a solid "watch dog" and is more than willing to give a warning bark and an aggressive look toward situations that don't "look right" to her. She has a full bite and LIKES to fight -- not at ALL like many "working shepherds" I've seen who hang onto a sleeve like a dead fish.

    My one caveat: Be aware that if you ASK FOR a working dog, that's what you will get -- and the uninitiated typically fail to understand what a chore and frustration it can be to raise a high drive working dog.

    The pup I bought at 8 weeks is now 17 months and is a loving companion and protector and a potential prize winning working dog. And she's loved and appreciated anywhere she goes, for her good looks and her very friendly and open nature. Great with kids, adults, and other animals. It doesn't get any better, in my opinion.

    Kaiser is doing great! Loves his new home. He's doing GREAT with potty training. He's growing like a weed, he's almost too big to hold anymore :( He's starting training tomorrow for basics and I am so excited! I can tell how intelligent he is and I am impatiently waiting for him to prove it :) Thank you for a great airport experience in getting him! It was very smooth and he came to me in great condition! You could tell he loved to be around people because he could not wait for me to hold him! He's already exceeding my expectations. I cannot wait to see him excel in all things. I've attached some pictures!

    Sincerely,

    I picked up Osa near the Sea Tac airport just over 1 year ago. She was 9 months old. She then flew with me to Ecuador. She is smart, gentle, easy to train, fun loving, a total water dog and a perfect companion and guard dog. She gets compliments from everyone she meets . I would recommend Kraftwerk to anyone seeking a quality Shepherd.

    Kraftwerk treats their K9s extremely well. Their facilities are well maintained, their animals are well trained, very well behaved, they (the humans at Kraftwerk) are easy to work with. I look forward to finding another GSD from them, an all black IPO3 female, someday! I picked up my first GSD at their location, they did a great handler transfer to me, I got to spend some time with the K9 up front.. Got a good view of their facility. Watch some of Wayne's videos on YOuTube, incredible obedience and intelligence in their GSDs!

    Kraftwerk,

    Thank you for raising such an amazing pup, Ziva has been the missing link our family and four children have been waiting for. She is very smart and a lot of fun. My five year old and I trained her to drop the ball without hesitation in one day, playing fetch is great bonding time for them, he used to be scared of all dogs and since has made a complete 180. Very obedient and loves to play with the kids. What a dream come true. Can't wait to watch her continue to grow and develop. She loves going in the car and couldn't be more happy. In just over 3 months I've probably received close to 50 compliments on how beautiful she is - Great work

    Kraftwerk Team,
    We picked up a very-happy-to-meet-us Lago!  We beat the heat of the day at the airport which was great.
    He was also a good traveler home.  He has adjusted very well, had a hearty meal and tons of water .... then met Johnny.  Johnny was nut sure what to think of this little guy, but appeared to want to play with Lago, they did fine for awhile then Johnny gave Lago a hard body slam, just to let him know who'[s boss, got scolded for it and has been fine since.  Lago has no interest in balls, so Johnny is secure that his balls are safe.
    Lago is precious, such a little baby yet, we forget how dependent they are, he doesn't leave my side., he's under my feet now as I type, partially hiding.  Ha!  He's not sure what to think, he just knows he is a lot smaller than that other dog.   He's tired, he's had a tough day!  He's excellent with "Sitz" and pretty good with "Platz"....but he is missing the hot dog treats, he keeps looking in my hands for them.  They will be on the schedule tomorrow.
    We want to thank you all for the leash, collars, dog food and the special green collar Lago wore today, he looks especially spiffy in it!  That was thoughtful of you!  You all are great to work with, we will keep in touch with updates on their progress, hopefully we'll get a good snapshot of them together to send you.
    We have decided that since Lago is nearly a mirror-image of Brody, we area going to name him Brody2; now when I call Johnny - "Brody" - at least I have a Brody to answer me!
    Thank you once more for your professional and caring services, you're the Best!
    Best regards,
    Jackie and Richard
    Johnny and Brody2

    "Mia" has been renamed "Pele" after the Hawaiian Goddess of Fire.  She is two months into her training to become a patrol generalist police dog where she will be tasked with locating suspects who flee from crime scenes.  Her overall progress is stellar and she is excelling in the very difficult task of tracking/trailing in hard surface urban environments.  One of her best traits is her ability to be on task when it comes to work (tracking, bite work, strict obedience) and then moments later be a social with other dogs and welcoming to people.  More updates to come in the following months as we wrap up training!

    Kraftwerk K9:
    We wanted to let you know that Johnny is an excellent traveler.  He made the 2-days-trip home to Denver like a seasoned champ; he was calm, quiet, didn't get distracted by dogs or people, didn't bark even once, and had no potty accidents.  Two full days of traveling are a test for any young dog on his first journey, especially with strangers, and he far exceeded our expectations.  He has settled into his new home very quickly, his manners are excellent, he is totally stress-free, he's sweet, fun and loves everyone!  What a joy!  We want to thank the Kraftwerk staff for your hospitality during our visit and for another beautiful, well-trained Shepherd.  We made an excellent choice in  Johnny.
    He is an absolute jewel, he had his first Vet visit this morning (passed with flying colors) and they all fell in love with him, including our vet who sat on the floor and played with him for 10 minutes while we talked.  They loved our precious Brody for nearly 9 years and are happy to see we have another beautiful, loving GS to share with them; they look forward to meeting Lago in 4 weeks.  Johnnie is gaining more confidence in his new surroundings and is thriving.  Ha!  Once more, job well done!

    Proud offspring of Karlo and Armilla
    litter 11/2013, Armilla's last, and only pup in that litter. We changed her name from Gretel.
    He is everything a person could want from any GSD, especially her good manners in public make for joyful outings. We have a parlor game we play at the perfume counters, which draws a crowd. I let her sample perfumes, she is either neutral or shows extreme displeasure by snarling, it is hysterical. She has powerful scent discriminations.
    Thought you might like to see her grown up. FullSizeRender

    Hi, Jenni is doing great. She gets along well with the two older dogs, Teska and Aldo.
    Jenni has also made friends with our cat, pirate. Jenni is a natural tracker and will track the cat down when she wants to play. She is a demanding girl and barks at me when she wants to go out, get feed or when she just wants to play ball. This girl has a lot of personality and is very intelligent. I need to get a bigger bed, however because all three like to sleep on my bed together.  As our fourth dog from kraftwerk she has lived up to our expectations........ Thank again for providing us with this treasure.

    We acquired Nikon (Oruger and Kim) four years ago, we were amazed at how smart he was that we went back for Gretel (Karlo and Armilla) born 11/2913. We changed her name to Holchichka, but her nickname is GiGi. It is sort of an homage to femininity because she is the fiercest animal we have ever seen. But to those she loves, she is devoted. 

    She accompanies my husband to work quite often and exhibits impeccable manners, she is perfect in public. We are working with her in varied disciplines and none stump her. In fact her trainers and decoys say she is a "NICE DOG", not a term they utter liberally. 

    We love her drive, intelligence, and heart. Besides, she is pretty!

    We hope to see you soon, and keep breeding the best GSD's ever.

    Wow! What can I say about Nero! Wonderful, loving, extremely intelligent, extremely protective of the home and especially the grandkids.  Beautiful healthy dog! Never having a GS I did extensive research in GS breeders. I'm so glad I made the right decision choosing Kraftwerk k9. From the moment I contacted you, and chose my dog there was extensive communication through email and weekly pictures of his growth and training. A former NYPD Police Commissioner that I know recommended a top trainer here on the East Coast for his next phase of taining because I wanted Nero to stay closer to home. That trainer was amazed at what a well rounded healthy intelligent GS Nero was.  Even his vet is impressed and also asked about Kraftwerk k9.  I love him and can't imagine my life without him! Thank you!

    Wayne and Kraftwerk Family,
    It is with a heavy heart that I write this thank you. 13 ½ years ago my wife and I and our two children (8 &  4) arrived at O’Hare airport in Chicago to meet our new family member – Frenzi vom Kraftwerk. She was born July 3, 2002 from Geppeto (Gunner) vom Conneforde and Donna vom Haus Loschan. In the back of the crate was the cutest black/grey sable shepherd, the exact coloring we had searched for. While most important to us at that time was to find that rare black/grey sable, in a very short time we realized we not only got the coloring that we wanted, but we also got the perfect temperament.   Frenzi provided that security and protection to our home and our family without any training. She would bark at any passerby’s with a simple but sturdy bark to let them know she was there. However, when warranted, that bark changed and it was very clear that she was providing more than just a simple warning. When Frenzi was young (3 or 4), we had a neighbor (that we didn’t know at the time), approach our front door at 1:00 in the morning. My wife and I awoke immediately because Frenzi’s barking clearly put us on notice that something was wrong. I quickly went downstairs, all the while Frenzi was still at the window barking with that serious bark that something wasn’t right. The neighbor was afraid to come all the way to our door and was standing way back in the middle of our front yard. His purpose was solely to tell us that we had forgotten to close our garage door that evening, but because of Frenzi he was afraid to even come to our front door to ring the bell. That neighbor and I ended up coaching together for many years and he and Frenzi got along great.
    Just a few weeks ago we unfortunately had to say goodbye to Frenzi. We not only lost a family member, but we also lost that sense of calm, strength and security that she provided to our family for such a long time. Frenzi was also the best friend that anyone could ask for. She would always great us at the door and stay close and rub up against us until we took the few minutes to say “hi”. Good days or bad, she was always the one with a “smile” on her face when we got home. Without question, Frenzi was the best dog that we have ever owned and that we have ever known. As we consider another dog in the future, we will most definitely consider another shepherd from Kraftwerk K9.
    Thank you,
    Darin, Laura, Cody, Sierra and Frenzi

    Our puppy, who is now a little over a year old, has been an absolutely delightful experience. She is absolutely everything and more than we expected. The smartest and most ruggedly athletic shepherd, I've ever owned, simply the best.

    Kahekili Vom Kraftwerk is my first German Shepherd. I grew up with American-Line AKC German Shepherd show dogs and I can honestly say I have never had as dedicated, loyal, and beautiful of a dog as Kahekili. At 7 months old, Kahekili is growing into his Hawaiian name, "Thunder God" and is huge! He is truly a loving gentle giant.I am so grateful for him, as well as the wonderful training and treatment he received while at Kraftwerk K9.IMG_19331

    Dan S.I thank God for my shepherd, Teddy. He is now 9 years old and very healthy with no hip or elbow problems. I purchased Teddy from Kraftwerk after I lost my previous Kraftwerk dog. Teddy has been the greatest companion for my wife and I. Protective, extremely intelligent and great with other people. I have never been happier with a shepherd and he is my sixth. I recommend everyone to Kraftwerk.

    I have purchased three Kraftwerk dogs over the years and they have each been incredible. My new Kraftwerk dog, Sage, is smart, loyal and beautiful. I must admit she is a handful but brings joy to me everyday. My male, Wilson, is stunning and so very gentle...he is the best Shepherd ever!

    My Vet tells me over and over what a joy it is to see healthy vibrant German Shepherds. She wishes everyone could have a Shepherd like Kraftwerk Shepherds.

    My "Jax vom Kraftwerk" AKA Jax has been amazing! I have been sick and not able to do as much work with him. He is so smart that it takes very little to get him right back with his commands perfectly. He is so connected to me. He is a big boy for sure! After so many tragedies I have had in the last 6 1/2 years, including losing 2 of my previous GSD's, My Sable male 4-21-12, my East German female 5-8-2015. I went 4 months without a GSD, worst 4 months ever. My pup has mended my broken heart! You can never compare your Shepherds to the ones who have gone, however this boy is so smart it's interesting to watch his every move just hanging out at home! He has been on guard mode since he was barely 3 months old. Nobody is coming in here! He is 5 months old and already sleeps wherever he likes, but is always on duty!! He is training for my service dog as I am disabled. Once his vest is on, he is perfect anywhere I go! Love this boy!!

    I just wanted to say how much we are enjoying Jax! He is probably one of the smartest Shepherds I have had. He is still got a lot of puppy in him! It took awhile but now he and my Pomeranian are buddies :) It is comical to watch them play! He has been to all my doctors including UCLA. Everyone offered to "watch him". We stayed at the Marriott, he was a trooper! He eats out of the same bowl as my Pomeranian. I am thrilled to have him!

    We made a great decision getting Griz; Raven and Griz will be lifelong buddies. We are thrilled to have two dog’s that are directly from Wayne’s kennel, and even more thrilled that Griz is one of Rocky’s puppies!!! Raven has had no problems sharing her bed with Griz and they love to curl up together! Raven takes all his puppy play in stride, and actually spends a lot of time playing with him….they totally keep each other entertained!

    We call the first picture “Hugs and Kisses.” The second one was funny, as Raven was just sitting there and slowly moving her tail back and forth on the sidewalk, Griz kept trying to get her tail by batting his paw down on top of it. He finally got it and just sat there with is paw holding her tail down, and of course, couldn’t have been more proud of himself. The third one is the two of them curled up on Raven’s bed in our living room.

    Honor (from Rudy x Chula 2011 litter) and I attended the GSDCA National Specialty in Gray Summit MO last week (10/14-10/16 2015). In 3 days of trials, he earned his AKC Rally Obedience Advanced title (RA) with placements each day, finishing the title with a perfect score of 100 and 1st place. Rally Obedience is a nice way to test our training in a ring/trial environment. We will continue on in Rally and soon be competing in AKC obedience as well as working toward our BH and IPO titles. Honor is such a joy to train and he is making me a better trainer!

    Hi -- From Phoenix Arizona and just letting you know about our 3 year old Kraftwerk dog (birthdate 9/12/12) Carlo vom Kraftwerk. His father was Moses vom Fluchtweg. We changed his name to Johnny Cash when he arrived because he is solid black.

    I thought you might be interested in this:
    I work for ASU and there is a Canine Cognitive Collaboratory here -- we have learned definitively that dogs think like people...

    We have used no punishment and only verbal rewards... and we do use a Halti on walks -- never used a corrective collar ever. Our dog walks daily with dozens of dogs and off leash -- he goes on hikes off leash passing rabbits and other critters. We have two cats that he plays with.

    He responds to sentences and choices and there is NO WAY that he could do this if he didn't understand us... he is intuitive, but all who know him say that he is the SMARTEST dog they have ever met. He does things that we ask -- examples, I told him one day when we had guests that he was being too noisy and that he would have to go to the bedroom if he didn't quiet down. He immediately plopped down in place and didn't make a peep.

    We told him that if he ate the cat's food he would have to go in his kennel -- he avoided the cat's food for about an hour -- but then he went and ate it, and THEN went straight to his kennel and waited for us to say something to him.

    On a daily basis we converse with him and he reasons out a response.

    This goes on and on and on... he is brilliant -- and I thought you should know, since this training method tried our patience, exhausted us, etc. Chuck believed that you can't train puppies because they can't concentrate (just like babies) and that you should wait until they are adults to do the real training --- so for the last several years we have waited .... and he is sooo wonderful now.

    Just thought you should know that we are stopped by police officers, retail people, etc and they all tell us how perfectly trained our dog is... Ha ha, and he has no training. The last Airbnb place we stayed at wrote us and said that our dog is a perfect gentleman. Meanwhile --- he is the most focused, intense, serious, ball driven dog we have ever known. So -- difficult experiment, but wonderful outcome. Thought you might like to know about our success. Meanwhile, he still recognizes threats -- and protects our house and protects us out on walks --- and can catch a coyote in the neighborhood and corner him (that's hard to do). So special... here are some pictures of him --

    Massimo is working out, fine dog, very happy. Strong dog, we got him about 3 months ago, adapted very well, completely loyal, HIGH play drive, easy to work with.  I'm glad he came to us, we have always had GSDs, he was a good fit. We do the bike/trot thing every day, we never miss, I've got him running, even in the rain. Two miles up, two miles back, total of 4, every day.  Sleeps in our bedroom, well behaved in the house, goes everywhere in the car with me.
    Wayne, he is working out well, happy we have him.

    I wanted to send you an update on my boy, Rite of Honor vom Kraftwerk (Rudy x Chula "R" litter from Feb 2011).

    We are just getting started in AKC Obedience and Rally competition, and we had a couple of very nice runs earlier this year.  In January, he earned a perfect 200 in the Beginner Novice obedience class.  And we were featured in the July issue of the GSD Review (article attached).
    In March, we won the Rally Novice class at the AKC Rally National Championship.  We took 1st place in a class of almost 80 dogs, and we were the only team in our class to earn 2 perfect scores of 100 in the tournament.
    I've attached a photo collage I ordered from that event. Honor's schutzhund training has been coming along very nicely, and next year I plan to work toward his BH and IPO 1 titles, as well as start competing in the regular AKC obedience classes.  He is a challenge and a joy to train - I just adore this dog!  Thank you!

    "We have purchased 4 dogs, from Kraftwerk K-9, & have been so pleased. The dogs have been good with other dogs, but most importantly, they have been gentle w/ children. We have found them to be protective of the family, & never, destructive of the house. We have a Down's Syndrome Daughter, who's life revolves around our Shepherd. He flies with her, sleeps in her room, walks protectively w/ her in our adjacent canyon, & is her best friend. I have always found Wayne Curry, to be helpful, timely, & available. Our dogs, two of which have been our Son's, have become family members.

    I recommend Kraftwerk K-9, highly!"

We are just so happy with her, and are so impressed with how much she already knows at this young age. Your work and dedication really shows, and is appreciated beyond words! She is a perfect fit for us, and has flawlessly become a part of the family! She has such a sweet disposition, and is so alert to everything. We bought a small pool for her today, she was trying to swim in her water dish, and it just wasn't cutting it! So fun she loves the water, especially on these hot days. Sincerely, John and Angela

    I have a 14-week-old German Shepherd puppy and have been trying to train her based on books I read, videos and what I learned from lessons with my other dogs. Your videos helped me knit it all together in my head and gave me some new insights. Now we'll see if I can put it to good use.

    He is doing pretty good. I relaxed a little and I can sure see him getting a little crazy but nothing like he was! He wasn’t getting enough exercise because my daughter was gone for 3 weeks and he was home alone. We started doing more work with him, reminding him of the rules and practicing them. I’m glad I bought the DVDs when we were there! Hope all is well with you guys!

He was a great big dog that spent 12 and a half years with us as a well-loved member of the family. We went everywhere together and he was a living legend to everyone who knew him. Thank you so much for sending him our way.

    I’ve included a photo of him with my mom’s dog, Maya, another Kraftwerk dog. I hope someday when the time is right that we can add a third one to the family.

    All the best,

    Omega turned 9 weeks old yesterday. He is doing great. Like you may remember, I was very worried about Omega and the 4th of July and all the noises, well...Nothing happened. He ignored all the noises and continued playing like nothing was going on. He is not afraid of anything. We already started training. He is all I expected and much more. Thanks again and please extend my gratitude to Mr. Curry and all his team.

    Update on Fury from Ruger and Wiki (formerly Fasco vom Kraftwerk). Hard to believe this magnificent dog is the same bundle of fluff that walked out of his crate after a coast to coast flight in 2010. Of a number of dogs arriving on that flight, he was the only one who was silent. Upon opening the gate, he immediately came out and accepted the collar while licking my hand. He has been and continues to be my best friend. Intelligent, excellent protector, loyal to his pack, I could not have hoped for better. Interestingly quiet, especially for a GSD. Fury has never been a talker. His Vets love him, strangers admire him and I am proud to be his human. Thank you, Kraftwerk. I have no doubt, in time, I will be asking to adopt another of your wonderful dogs.
