Welcome To Grothaus Working German Shepherds

Grothaus K9 trains and breeds top quality, family working-dogs. Our dogs are part of our family… Ira, Amy, Hex, Irre, Echo, Ruze and Ronin have all have been chosen for their balanced abilities to work, play, socialize and protect; all while being obedient, engaged and under control. Grothaus German Shepherds are HOT (Handler/Owner Trained), and are trained, shown, and titled in a variety of activities that allow us to properly assess their strengths and weaknesses. We train balanced and actively with an emphasis on the competitive dog sport of Schutzhund & Nosework.

Here at Grothaus, we strive to breed and produce true working line German Shepherd puppies with excellent health, solid temperament, strong nerves, and balanced drives… German Shepherds that WORK on the field, on the street, and in the home. All of our dogs are titled before breeding as well as having their ‘a’ stamp and/or OFA certifications. While not breeding often, we put a great deal of time and effort into planning each litter. As any good breeder will tell you, quality females are the backbone to a good breeding program, and we’ve started with the best.

Our dogs aren’t nervous or anxious, they aren’t fearful and they are naturally easy to train… Beasts on the field or in the street… Loyal, confident companions everywhere.
