The breeding of Shepherd Dogs is the breeding of working dogs; and this must always be the aim or we shall cease to produce the Shepherd dogs

At vom Haus am Lerchenweg we have a specific breeding program that enables us to produce a German Shepherd that is not only striking in beauty, but also has intelligence and strength and heart.  We follow very closely with the goals of the founder of the German Shepherd, Max von Stephanitz, had in mind when he purchased the first German Shepherd in 1899 and started the SV.  Herr Stephanitz taught us that the best German Shepherd was the one bred to be the "Golden Middle", this was the dog with beauty intelligence the heart to protect his herd, family.  Herr Stephanitz was quoted once for saying:

"The breeder on a small scale, one who works with one or two bitches, is the most suitable breeder for working dogs because he can care for his breeding animals and their progeny... and can produce sound strong animals that can be trained"

vom Haus am Lerchenweg has taken this as to our number one rule for our breeding program.  We have been breeding German Shepherds since 1991 and have been fortunate enough to have produced VA dogs as well as dogs that have competed in the BSP.  

Our current breeding females are Lilly vom Haus am Lerchenweg  and Cia von der Burcknerallee.  We are excited about progeny from these two coming into our program in the next year. Quinnie v Haus a Lerchenweg and Soffi v Haus a Lerchenweg.
