Exclamation North Carolina - Working Line

Hello,

I am looking for a good Working Line breeder in North Carolina. In my searching I found two breeders in my state:

- Vom Ron German Shepherds - German Shepherd Dogs for Family/Personal Protection, Police, Schutzhund/Competition

- AK9 - Von Falkenhein - Policedogs.us

Is anyone familiar with these? If so, can you tell me your experience and quality of dogs?

Thank You all for your time,

WolfGrey84

There are board members with dogs from AK9. They seem to be very pleased and I'm sure they'll chime in. Welcome to the board!

I met a pup from Vom Ron shortly before we changed duty stations. He was an impressive pup. Bout a year old, well mannered. Good temperment. Didn't even flinch with loud noises (fireworks). He just watched everyone and took it all in. He turned all melty dog when kids were allowed to pet him and he was polite to adults.

The breeder of my dog is friends with the owners of both Von Ron and AK9. She can tell you about both. I'll send you a PM with her information.

I own a male out of a Von Ron male....very nice pup......I also train weekly with two AK9 dogs(but Malinois), that are certified police dogs, dual purpose( patrol and scent academy certified)....these are very good working dogs.

I'm not familiar with AK9 so have no opinion one way or the other on that breeder. I do have some experience with von Ron from breeding to her male, Body, last year. This is the litter Cliff's pup is out of. We also have 2 daughters from that same litter that we kept. Super young dogs. While visiting twice, once to meet the dogs and again a couple months later to do the breeding, I had the opportunity to spend several days with Joan and meet all of her dogs. We've since talked pretty regularly on the phone as well. I find her to be a very, very honest and ethical breeder who really knows her lines and her dogs, and really cares about her dogs and customers. She also has some darn nice dogs in my opinion. So I would definitely recommend her.

You should see his brother....also a very very nice dog. He is in my Sunday training class. This pup did a SCH one patterned track with two turns on Sunday in 35 mph winds. Great focus, great nerve, and very nice structure to boot.
