Names and Titles 101 March 20, 2012

Ever wonder why  the registered name of a dog is so long? or what the letter combinations mean before and after their names? Let us break down V Hoss v Bullinger SchH3 Kkl 1  a.k.a “Hoss” for an example:

V= Vorzuglich -Excellent show or performance rating – dog must minimally have a SchH 1 title

Hoss=This is his given name. The one given to him by the breeder and his registered name. How do we decide what to name them? We just assign each breeding a letter of the alphabet and all the puppies from that litter will have a name that starts with that letter. 

v Bullinger= the breeding program from which the dog came. All our dogs that were born here will have  “Vom Dortmunder” after their registered name

SchH3= SchH I, II, III  Schutzhund  Obedience, tracking, and protection titles. Sch III is the highest rank a dog can receive and this achievement can be repeated. 

Kkl 1= Koerklasse I-  Especially recommended for breeding.

a.k.a= Also Known As- Whatever name follows this acronym is their ‘house’ name. It’s what we call them at home!


Here are some more German Titles and ratings that you will see in our dogs.

The VA titles are earned  Seiger shows and V ratings are earned at local Schutzhund club shows. If you’d like to know more about this show, follow this link. The Sch titles are earned at Shutzhund trials. If you’d like to know more about these trials, follow this link The KKL titles are earned at Breed Survey.

Naming the “Q” litter March 19, 2012

Sometimes naming litters is not all fun and games. It seems English lacks several Q words that aren’t related to math and make decent puppy names. So we turned to J.K Rowling’s Wizarding world of Harry Potter for our “Q” puppy names.

For the boys we have

  • Quidditch
  • Quirell
  • Quibbler

For the girl we have:(not from HP but hey)

  • Quintessa
  • Quinatina

Co-owned puppies still avilable. March 1, 2012

Eletta (Voxi) is co-owned by Baerental German Shepherds and they love her as much as we do! There is a planned breeding for later this year with Voxi and a Baerental male so stay tuned.

Please visit their site for available puppies and get to know our partner breeders. Notice we are all small operations, with the health of our German Shepherds being the most important factor to us. We never breed for profit and it shows in the superior temperament and structure of our dogs.

“All of Baerental German Shepherds’ dogs are bred from the very best West German show lines. They are chosen for their soundness of character, willingness to please, and intelligence, as well as for their structure and health. They take correction well and enjoy all three phases of schutzhund work – tracking, obedience and protection. We’re committed to breeding dogs whose temperament and beauty allow them to perform in the show ring, in any dog sport, work as service dogs or detection dogs, and especially to be great family companions.

We also provide custom importing with references on request. Our 28 years of experience training and breeding German Shepherds, along with the experience of our German partners, gives us the background to help our clients reach whatever goals they have with their German Shepherd Dog.”
