As a little boy I was afraid of German Shepherd Dogs and avoided them. Even with being afraid of these dogs, I was intrigued and knew that one day I would like to have one of these dogs as a pet. Having a friend like these great dogs and being able to train them interested me very much.
1973 I bought my first german shepherd female "Heike Vom Schwerter Wald". I trained her and she passed all tests including "Schutzdienst" and Strength Tests. After she received her breed-survey I founded the "Vom Geisterholz" Kennel in Westphalia, Germany. In 1975 I had my first puppies.
I became deeper and deeper involved in and with German Shepherd Dogs and I am a Member of the "Verein fuer Deutsche Schaeferhunde" (SV, Main Club for German Shepherds in Augsburg, Germany) since 1974. For more than 10 years I travelled back and forth between Florida and Germany and in 2004 I finally made my decision and the "Vom Geisterholz" Kennel, my dog "Jane vom Kristallsee" (born in Berlin, Germany) and myself immigrated completely to the United States.
In 2004 I started breeding German Shepherd Dogs the classic international standard way here in Florida. We had quite a few litters and all our puppies develop into great healthy German Shepherd Dogs.
