Breeder Clayton Warichak has been breeding Von der Stadtrand German Shepherds Since 1992. The breed name " Von der Stadtrand" was registered with The United Schutzhund Clubs of America in 1994.

German Shepherd Dogs have been a passion for Clayton Warichak starting at the age of 15. Clayton imported his first Schutzhund three male German Shepherd from Germany at the age of 16. Clayton is married to his wife Margaret and they have a 10 year old son Seth. Clayton Warichak has been an active competitor in Schutzhund and also Conformation shows for 20 years. Margaret and son Seth are active in raising the puppies and also train their dogs in Schutzhund.

The Von der Stadtrand German Shepherd dogs are known for their rich red color, beautiful structure, high intelligence, as well as their loyalty to the family. Clayton Warichak breeds his German Shepherds from pure German Import bloodlines. Von der Stadtrand German Shepherds come from both West German Showline and also West German Working lines. This makes the Von der Stadtrand German Shepherd the most well rounded dog for multipurpose. Most Von der Stadtrand German Shepherd puppies are living in family homes, however many are in working police-k9, search and rescue, agility, conformation shows, and also Schutzhund sport dogs.

All Von der Stadtrand litters are whelped in the home so the puppies are well socialized. Breeder Clayton Warichak personally whelps every litter. The puppies are held every day and talked to. The breeders website is updated every week with new photos of the puppies. At three weeks Clayton starts giving the puppies a blended mix of puppy food and evaporated milk. This gives the puppies a strong start on life and an easy transition to solid puppy food at six weeks. Von der Stadtrand puppies are very social and have fluffy coats and strong bones. Most all Von der Stadtrand German Shepherds have the ears standing at 8 weeks. The puppies are sold with a written hip and health guarantee. Puppies are able to go to local homes or people who can drive to Von der Stadtrand and pick up at 7 weeks and puppies can be shipped on the airlines at 8 weeks of age.

Von der Stadtrand German Shepherds are bred to the German standard and each litter of puppies is assigned the next letter of the alphabet which every puppy's first name starts with. All Von der Stadtrand Puppies are all given an ear tattoo at 7 weeks. The tattoo is five digits located in the right ear. The tattoo ink is the same shade of green that was used in Germany for many years.

All von der Stadtrand German Shepherd dogs are invited to attend social dog training and pot luck barbeque every Saturday from 11-3pm during the moths of April-Oct. Training is located at the Warichak farm in a large field secluded by trees. Clayton Warichak is a master of Schutzhund dog training which includes tracking, obedience, and protection training. This manner of breeding German Shepherd dogs with following through dog training is what makes Clayton Warichak stand out as a top breeder.

I bought my German Sheperd Diesel at 8 weeks of age, After months of research of many different breeders. Its really nice to know there are breeders still out there that are not doing it just for the money. They are all very educated on the breed, And are always there with any questions or advise. Ive owned many German Sheperds and this one by far is the smartest and best i have ever had. Thank you for your honesty and dedication to this breed. Keep up the good work, Russell Jackola

I cannot say enough about Clayton and Margaret at Von der Stadtrand. They are extremely knowledgeable and talented breeders and trainers. They will care about the dog you take home with you like it is still their own. The training included with purchase is invaluable. Wolverine and I love going to club each weekend.
I get compliments on him everywhere I go, people stop on the street to meet him and even shout out of car windows to tell me what a beautiful shepherd I have. I take Wolverine with me everywhere: car rides, on boats, swimming at the beach, crowded festivals, anywhere---he is attentive and confident in ANY situation. And if he is off leash, he always has an eye or an ear on me. Wolverine is extraordinary with children of any age, very calm and gentle, and still ready to go to work in the blink of an eye. There is no doubt that Wolverine would protect us without fail, from any threat. No matter what you are looking for: a quality competitor; trusted companion; protector of your children, family pet; you will get all that and more in the new member of your family courtesy of Von der Stadtrand.

When I lost my German Shepherd Show Dog 13 years ago, I was so devasdated I quit the show ring. With some much pushing from my niece recently, I began looking for that "one in a million" GSD again. I never thought I'd find a dog like my Axel again. I was wrong. Yager is my little big man and an amazing dog. He's smart, attentive, willing and affectionate. I have no doubt he will live up to my high expectations and the breeders expectations too. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another pup from them in the future. Clayton and Margaret Warichak of Von der Stadtrand German Shepherds are amazing. They're honest, knowledgeable and friendly people dedicated to preserving the breed and making it better. Kudos to you! I didn't just get another German Shepherd, I got another soul mate!! Something few people can truely experience once in a lifetime, let alone find it twice! Thank You Clayton & Margaret of Von der Stadtrand Kennels.

After almost a year of searching for the right stud for my female, I found Clayton. We exchanged emails, viewed pedigrees and discussed the breeding details. When the time came, I drove to Wisconsin, to have my female bred. I met Clayton and Margaret for the first time in person. They are wonderful people. We hit it off right away. They are very knowledgeable about the GSD and were with me all the way. If I had questions, they had answers. From the diet of my female to whelping. If I had any concerns or questions, I'd give them a call or drop them an email. They were always there. They're professional, courteous, down to earth and very out going people. By the way, my female's first breeding, produced 10 healty wonderful pups, that are willing, alert, attentive, eager to please and have the traits of "both" parents. Something you don't see everyday. I have no doubt that this cross has improved the breed and these pups should excel in Schutzhund or whatever direction the new owner chooses. Thank you Clayton and Margaret for being such caring and knowledgeable breeders. Not to mention wonderful people, who I would be happy and proud to call my "friends". Thank you very much.

Hi, we actually drove to Wisconsin from North Carolina to pick up our male german shepherd puppy Kaiser. It was a wonderful adventure and Clayton and Margaret are so great to work with. Kaiser was born 1/21/2009 and Clayton emailed us every week with news and pictures about the puppies. It was very exciting. They have always been helpful and kind with any questions we may have. Kaiser is beautiful, he is rich red and black and we get so many compliments on his good looks. We saw Quartz, one of Kaiser's full brothers, on Clayton's website and we fell in love. Check out his website, you won't be disappointed. Melanie and Jerry Denton, Battleboro, N.C.

Clayton from Von der Stadtrand is one of the most knowlegable breeders I have ever met. My wife and I could not be more happy he is like our child. His temperment is perfect and he is healthy as can be. I took him for a hip x ray and it was perfect and everyone at the vet loved him. If you are going to buy a German Shepherd buy it from Vond der Stadtrand.
