We are serious German Shepherd enthusiasts with the goal of starting our own breeding program. We are a small hobby breeder located in Mansfield, Texas. We got our first German Shepherds in 2009 and immediately got hooked on the breed. We had our first litter in 2014! Through our research and experiences we realized that the breed isn't just a hobby, but a true lifestyle for us. The German Shepherd is a breed full of ongoing debates, full of opinions in what direction the breed should be going in. We believe the German Shepherd to stay the way it has been intended by the breed's founder, a versatile working dog. We mainly focus on West German working lines as well as some Czech lines, these two combined bring forward a lot of the qualities we find admirable in the breed.
Our dogs are active in several venues such as PSA (Protection Sports), Mondioring, Obedience, Tracking, Conformation, Dock Diving, Agility, and Lure Coursing not only to prove their athleticism and versatility, but for the simple fact that they love it! Our operation is small and run through our home, which gives us a good grasp on our dogs qualities and temperaments as well as being handler owner trained, meaning we put in the work to train our dogs ourselves. We aim to be honest and humble in our evaluation of our personal dogs as our goal is to produce sound German Shepherds with the qualities needed to be a versatile working dog, be it in Competitive Sports, Personal Protection, Herding, SAR or just great family companion.
The name Vom Anfang essentially means "from the beginning" in German. We found this name suiting not only to establish our new beginning into dogs but to also pay homage to the idea of the original German Shepherd
All of our dogs and puppies are raised in the home with us and are a part of our family. We will typically only have 1-2 litters a year.
