DOB 10-7-96
(Falkrigia's Quothe The Raven CD BH TC HIC v Ch Windwalker's Utah v Falkrigia CD TT HIC ROM)

Vachon was one of those special dogs who ensures that you always remember what a German Shepherd Dog should be. A combination of German and American lines who had success in both the specialty and all-breed
rings, he was absolutely the best of both worlds. Large with a gorgeous head, deep, rich pigment and plush-coated, he was a substantial, heavy-boned, all-male, devoted protector of those he loved.

GRAND CHAMPION DIEGO

(Ch HiCliff Bronson Kaleef ROM x Ch Kaleef's Plaudit of Jaepaul HSAS ROM)
DOB - 1/3/06

See our pedigree
We were very saddened by the passing of our GCh Diego in 2013. He does have incredible offspring keeping his legacy alive though - with hopefully more to come in the future through frozen semen breedings. A beautiful specialty mover, Diego was an exceptional dog who finished his Championship very quickly with four 4-point majors and his Grand Championship with six 4-point majors.

Diego has 5 Champions including 2 Grand Champions from only 3 breedings. Among those are GrCh Ropaja's Cache who is nearing her own ROM as a producer with 5 qualifiers to date and GrCh Palin, who has not yet been bred and who may be available for lease when she completes her performance titles, (both found under 'females' on our website).

DOB 11-30-99
Trapper and his brother Ch Man O War ROM are from the incredible 7-Champion litter of Sel Ch Dallas ROM and Valle ROM which also produced multiple BIS BISS Sel Ch Kaleef's Genuine Risk. Trapper had elegant, lovely type with beautiful curves and angles, a strong head, excellent bone, plush coat and a good mind. Trapper's offspring are proving their own producing ability as his daughter 'Fire' is now.....Falkrigia She's A Little 2 Hot 4 Me ROM with multiple Champions and qualifiers

We are sad to have recently laid to rest our gorgeous and ever-young Ch Bold Ruler. At 13 and 1/2 he still moved across the yard with ease and even with glimpses of the beautiful suspension he possessed as a youngster. Although totally deaf, he still insisted on performing his duties daily to check each dog's paddock and guard Gene in his shop as he did his woodworking. Trapper was a mighty dog in so many ways. He will be forever missed.

Zen - 16 Months

Vachon was the ultimate GSD in my world and his offspring and grand-offspring have followed in his footsteps in many ways, carrying on the tradition of solid character, intelligence, trainability, devotion and willingness to protect that Vachon always exhibited. Zen has always been a delight to show, train and trial - always giving 100% even in pain before letting us know that he had an obedience career-ending injury.

Zen is a beautiful mover and was successful in both the specialty and all-breed venues easily finishing his Championship and Grand Championship. He has a great working attitude, is always on 'go' and loves doing whatever you invite him to join you in. He is still very active although we are careful with what he is allowed to do. Barn Hunt is his current interest. Zen is a full older brother to Ch Parker and Ch Justice.

DOB 1-28-12

See our Pedigree


Parker is a large, solid all-male dog with excellent pigment, bone, substance and temperament. He is the alpha male in our kennel, is a correctly aloof but social GSD, easily finished his Championship and is working on multiple performance titles in multiple venues. We are extremely pleased with what he has produced in his first 2 litters - both by european working-line bitches. Parker is the sire of both Edgar, the most versatile performance dog I've ever worked and Flash who is just starting out in her show and performance career. Parker will be campaigned to his Grand Championship as time permits with our current group of young dogs in competition.

Edgar July 2015
From an American/European combination, Edgar is proving to be a youngster with a competitive spirit and strong drives. Already pointed in the conformation ring from the 6-9 class, he is fiery on the schutzhund field in early training and is working well in obedience and tracking as well. He is great fun.... with a quirky sense of 'Edgar humor'...and bears watching at all times : He makes friends everywhere he goes and is always ready for a 'road trip'.
Edgar working at 9 months
Edgar Working at 9 Months

Edgar is far and away the most versatile dog I have ever known. He currently works in Rally, Obedience, Schutzhund (IPO) and BarnHunt. He will be starting in Herding shortly as well. He learns quickly, is very social, has strong drives and great determination.

Edgar has also written and published a book ……'Being Edgar' - The 'How-To' Manual for The Truly Exceptional Dog……… and is a spokesman for a foundation being set up to assist animals and their humans on a case-by-case basis. Edgar wrote his book as a fund-raiser for The Janice Boswell Animal Advocacy foundation, currently being incorporated. Contact us for more info

Edgar is excelling in BarnHunt which he truly loves!! In case you are not familiar with this sport, the 'ratties' are well-cared-for and always totally safe in their tubes. Most barnhunt rats are family pets when not working…which they seem to enjoy as well.

Pictured at 11 Months

Elfin is a dark, substantial, very masculine dog who, despite his name , is a rather dignified fellow who considers himself above the playfully crazy antics of his half-brother Zen, but with a great sense of humor all his own. Elfin has 11 points 1 major and is looking for those finishing wins as he trains for his performance titles as well. Elfin was placed for a while as a companion which kept him from starting an early show career but he has made up for it since his return to Falkrigia (through no fault of his own).

Gaiting to a major win at 15 months under judge Doug Crane

We are proud to announce the acquisition of 4 month old Gray Ghost on co-ownership from the Millers. Ghost is that very special, deep sable puppy with an outstanding attitude, gorgeous structure and movement and a pedigree that should ensure he will be an outstanding producer as well as showman. We first saw him at the 2016 mid-Atlantic futurity where his older sister was shown and won BOF after going Best Opposite Puppy at the 2015 National Specialty. Came, Saw, Fell in love, Purchased
In his first and only weekend out to date, Ghost takes 2 specialty Best Puppy and 1 Best Opposite Puppy wins and also a 5 POINT MAJOR RESERVE. Not a bad weekend for the young man
Ghost With Doug Crane
12 month old Ghost goes Winners Dog for the Major at the Treasure Coast GSD Club Specialty Show 1-7-17 under judge Doug Crane. Thanks to Lenny Brown for a great handling job and judge Crane for the super win. Ghost took the 4 point RWD at 15 months at the GSDC of No Fla under judge Pamela O'Dell in very stiff competition.
Ghost went Winners Dog for a 5 point Major under the esteemed Ms Rosalind Schaffer in New Jersey. Ghost now has 8 points both majors at 18 months of age.

Watch for updates on this boy as well as our other youngsters.
