Success Stories

From “Atlas” in our first litter to “Villi” in our 73rd litter, Kirchenwald Shepherds has enjoyed considerable success in the German-style conformation ring and the sport of Schutzhund.  We also take great pride in the versatility of our dogs as they reflect their owner’s interests–from therapy and service dogs, to agility champions or dedicated family guardians.  Here are some of our dogs’ accomplishments.  Please contact us to add your own Kirchenwald success story.
