~ About our dogs at Schraderhaus K9 ~
We are a privately owned and operated kennel located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest Region. Our facility is located on the outskirts of the foothills of Mount Rainier, bordering the rural towns of Roy/Graham - (Click here for Map & Directions) , where we have lived since 1977. Our Primary Focus is on producing beautiful and healthy dogs with structurally sound and solid working body type; dogs who possess and exhibit good temperament along with balanced working drives, thereby producing offspring who are also a pleasure to live with. Correct working body structure along with soundness of mind are extremely important within our breeding program, with our goal being to produce offspring with the same solid qualities so evident in the breeding stock we choose to mate together. Sound hips and elbows, structural health, keen intelligence, steadfast loyalty and superior working ability are equally important qualities within our breeding program. Selecting correct, healthy working conformation coupled with keeping an eye towards beauty, while never breeding for the sake of looks alone, continues to produce dogs from our kennel which possess the correct balanced drives and which are also pleasing to look at. We will not sacrifice these goals simply to produce high-drive, overly aggressive dogs.
Our breeding stock consists of the bloodlines of precious old working foundation lines from the countries of Germany, Czech Republic, and Slovakia. We take great care to insure that our breeding stock is certified clear of Hip and Elbow Dysplasia. Our dogs are descendants of the most influential and sought after old foundation bloodlines and working lineage from East Germany ; such as the great Lord vom Gleisdreieck, Jeff vom Flämings-Sand, Sven Grafental, Held Ritterberg, Ingo V. Rudingen and Don v. Rolandsteich, and from Slovakia, 6 time World Team Competitor, Norbo Ben Ju.. Our breeding females also possess heritage from the genetic history of the best known and most highly sought after proven working bloodlines for Czech/Slovak pedigrees; Bero v Friedersdorfer Fleur, Lido and Chery Jamirex, Figa Cega, Grim z Pohraniční stráže, Iwo v.d. Buschecke, and especially noteworthy...the wonderful foundation lines from which the Czech working dogs originated: the famous, well respected Czech kennels of Pohraniční stráže, Jipo Me & Jirkova dvora.
We incorporate the very best quality breeding females into our program; those which are known to possess warm temperaments and are fastidious, nurturing mothers, are substantial in bone and body type and who are also known to possess strong genotype and are proven to be consistent in passing on these qualities. Our dogs are clear in the mind, and have balanced working drives with sound nerves. These qualities, which have long been part of the breed standard as requirements for the German Shepherd Dog, are what we look for in our breeding dogs. Our dogs have proven to consistently pass these qualities along into their progeny.
