Welcome to the Website for Vom Zeder Haus German Shepherds. Located in Kentucky and Tennessee, we are one of the very few High-level Kennels in America, offering Authentic European German Shepherds to Civilians as personal and Family dogs. All VZH German Shepherds are European Imports or the progeny of imports, thus bred to the European breeding standard. All of our dogs meet the European Standard for health, confirmation, and working ability.

While VZH is a breeding and training Kennel, we are also a Research Organization, and an Organization fighting the Exploitation of the German Shepherd Dog.

Regarding our Breeding Program – We import our dogs from the top Breeding Program in Europe which crosses German Shepherds from Old Czech / Pohranicni Straze lines with German dogs. We then cross those GSD’s with West German Dogs, thus to improve the breed by taking it back to the era of the 1960’s and 1970’s, which were the best years for this breed.

Regarding our Research – While we have yet to publish anything in book or journal form, VZH is one of the Worlds leading Researchers on the GSD, specifically in the area of genetics, health and Veterinary Medicine.

Regarding our work exposing the exploitation – The GSD is the most exploited mammal on the planet and the US is the leading Country (by Far) for this. On this website we expose the AKC, and American Veterinary System for the pain, suffering and destruction they are causing to this breed. We also expose German Shepherds.com, the forum, for extremely inappropriate comments made by some of the Members on that site. Please see our page “The Exploitation of the GSD in America“, as it goes into detail about all of this.

Whereas European Countries (where the German Shepherd Dog was created and developed) Governs the reproduction of German Shepherds with strict qualifications for Breeders, Trainers, and the dogs, there are NO qualifications in the United States to become a Breeder, Trainer or to be registered as a German Shepherd dog.

This is why that from the over 50,000 German Shepherd Breeders in the U.S., less than 10 are qualified to do so. Of the so called approximately 10,000 + German Shepherd Trainers in the United States, less than 100 have the knowledge to train these incredible dogs.

Of the over 20 Million so called German Shepherds in the United States, approximately .0000000000000001% are Authentic German Shepherd dogs.

  • By reading this website you will learn to recognize qualified Breeders, versus those who aren’t, and know less about this Breed than you do.
  • You will learn to recognize qualified Trainers, versus those who are doing so simply because they can’t hold employment elsewhere.
  • You will learn to recognize the Puppy Mills and the exploitation of German Shepherd Dog.
  • You will learn that modern Schutzhund dogs are NOT working dogs, only trained in obedience, to bite a bite sleeve, to track an article across a field, but can hardly function off leash, and certainly could NOT function in the Real working dog World!!
  • You will learn that while America is the greatest Country, the American Veterinary System is the WORST of any Country in the World. ANY, and we repeat ANY, dog that is being exposed to an American Veterinarian is being physiologically deteriorated. You will learn how and why this is happening.
  • In Europe, German Shepherd puppy and dog prices are uniform. However in the U.S., prices range from free to $500.00 to $4500.00 for German Shepherd Puppies. We break all of that down for you so you specifically what all of this means. 
  • If you read this entire Website, you will know more about the German Shepherd Breed than ANY German Shepherd Breeder, Trainer, or Veterinarian in the United States. This is an incredible and sad statement.  Sad that you would know more than ANY breeder, trainer or Veterinarian in America just by reading one website….. sad but true !

Edward conducts 1-4 hours of research each day as time permits, this has been ongoing for over 30 years.
  • Vom Zeder Haus German Shepherds is VERY selective as to where our Puppies and dogs go, however we are always seeking good people as Parents for our dogs.

German Shepherd Owners give their dogs time they can spare, room they can spare, and love that they can spare.

In return, German Shepherds give their Owners their ALL.
