Dogs, cats and horses are my daily companions since more than 20 years. All of my dogs (Dobermans, Jack Russels, a Foxterrier and a Dogo Argentino were trained to be service- or working dogs. Mushing is one of my favourite activities and even though my Dobermans made great sleddogs, I decided for a heavier class of dog, obedient and active with great companion dog qualities. The typical type of German shepherd, same as the Belgian shepherd I considered too driven and light weight, French shepherds too hairy and somehow back then I preferred a long, dense coat and I came home with a longcoated German shepherd or how we call it Altdeutscher Schäferhund. Aditionally it was a great choice for my breeding plan. A gentle dog with a solid, and friendly temperament, loyal, with a strong bond towards his family.
