Frankenhaus German Shepherds


Our goal at Frankenhaus is to produce the best examples of the German Shepherd Dog possible, true to the AKC Standard in both conformation and temperament. Total dogs, sound of mind and body, capable of the herding tasks for which they were originally bred, as well as the multitude of additional tasks for which they have been adapted... trusting and trustworthy companions, loyal to and ready to defend their masters, as well as functional and beautiful animals.

why the german shepherd dog?

We have always felt that the German Shepherd Dog is the only "real" dog. Other breeds are poor imitations. This is an emotional conclusion, not a logical one. It doesn't really matter that the GSD is a relatively young breed. What matters is that the characteristics that were selected in the creation of the breed were the "right" ones. The German Shepherd is arguably the most versatile of breeds (filling many roles in society with equal skill and grace). It is a natural breed, requiring no special attention to look like a German Shepherd. Combine these things with the beauty and excitement of the "flying trot", the German Shepherd moving the way it would patrolling the boundary and herding sheep in the tending style, and you might begin to understand our enthusiasm for the breed.

follow us on facebook

We do not have a facebook page dedicated to Frankenhaus, but I do post a lot of Frankenhaus material on my personal Facebook page. If you are interested, contact me and ask to be added to my German Shepherd friends.


We are active members of the German Shepherd Dog Club of America, signers of the GSDCA Breeders Code, and officers of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Central Ohio.

"Sony" CH, TC, HIC, OFA - the foundation that brought us back into the show world after many years away while our children were young. She was our first champion, did everything we ever asked of her, and ran the house as the resident "couch potato" until she passed over the rainbow bridge just shy of her 12th birthday. She is shown here placing 3rd in the Intermediate Bitch Class at the Great Lakes Futurity in 1996, handled by Terry Hower. This was our first Futurity placing.
